I don't know why there are so many negative reviews. I usually have at least a hour wait with my own doctor, and that's when I have an appointment. I went to the ER once with a bad stomach bug and waited for 6 hours in the waiting room,

they will tell you they take your insurance and then you end up with a big bill because they really don't. Call your insurance company in advance or just go to the emergency room instead

Terrible service - waited for hours then son was seen quickly - and billed $190 for our troubles - I'd rather go to the emergency room.

I'd like to start things off by commending the nursing and clerical staff: they were warm, accommodating, and incredibly personable. It's an absolute shame that they have to work in such a horrible environment: I spent upwards of four

My first experience was for an acute illness, I had recently fired my physician after 15 years of service and was in between providers; the emergicenter was up the street form my home and I went there for the convenience. I was so impressed with their efficiency and courtesy and the great medical care I received that I became a permanent patient of Dr. Shingles. After several illnesses and emergencies I can say that it was a decision I have never regretted. i recommend their services to everyone!

Took a family member here yesterday, she was complaining of chest pains and dizzyness, nausea. I figured it would be quicker han the hopital ER. Boy was I wrong! First of all, they never even asked why we were there. Don't you think if you choose the name "EMERGICENTER" that would lead people to think it was for emergency care? first thing they did was make us fill out 3 sheets of papers, then to wait. "You're next" was told to us about 4 times over the next 45 mins. THEY NEVER ASKED US WHY WE WERE THERE!!! Finally I got fed up and went across the street to Lehigh Valley Hospital ER. What a difference! We got an EKG wihin 5 mins, and in an ER bed within 10 mins. The staff was professional, freindly, genuine. They cared. The symptoms turned out to be indigestion, but you never know.

DO NOT go to EMERGICENTER! They are completely uncaring, aloof, as if we were bothering them by being there. This place is a joke! I would never take a loved one there EVER.

Pros: Couldn't find any.

Cons: What exactly does "Emergi-Center" mean?

The nurse was unnecessarily rude to my partner and I. She talked down to us and acted as if we were wasting her time by being there. The doctor was more polite but was very dismissive and rushed us out.

I have on two occasions needed to use their services due to accidents in my home. On both occasions I received excellent service from a friendly staff. They took time to explain the various steps in their treatment which included a great number of stitches and the accompanying treatments. On the second trip there I remarked to the doctor that I was glad they were open so that I didn't need to go tho the emergency room and face a very long wait. He then let me know that if I had done so I would have had him stitching me there as he was the doctor on call for the emergency room. So I would have had the same doctor but it would have taken several hours longer and been much more expensive. They carefully explained what I should do when I returned home and didn't charge me for the follow-up appointments, despite me having to return on three occasions due to concern of inflection. In short, although I hope to not need their services for some time, they were wonderful, and I am glad they are there should I need them.

I was referred to the Ermergicenter by my insurance company while I was attending college in Allentown. It took them over an hour to see me, with an empty waiting room. The doctor did a very limited examination, and sent me home with antibiotics- ignoring the request from my home primary physician for a mono-test (and mono was going around the college at the time- and found out I did have mono and a swollen spleen when I saw my doctor at home the following week). At check out, the staff was very friendly, but unknowledgable. I had two insurances, and with all the time they had to check on my insurance (hour in the waiting room- and another hour waiting in the room and getting the exam), they were asking me what I owed. I payed the standard co-pay required from my primary insurance for emergency care visits, and asked they refund me if my secondary covered any of the visit. Now three years later, I am checking my credit report, and find out I owe them money, and have been sent to collections, without ever receiving a bill from their office. (I would have complained to my insurance company and dealt with them correctly, if I had actually gotten a bill!) Not only did I get poor service, a wrong diagnosis, and unneeded antibiotics, I now have a blemish on my credit report from their inability to bill correctly.

Pros: location, walk-ins taken

Cons: poor communication, untrained staff

Upon calling for info, front desk stated they do not take appts - first come, first served only. What a load of donkey dust! Upon arriving at this facility, the 1st thing I was asked by front desk is whether or not I had an appt!

I was left sitting & cooling my heels in waiting area for well over an hour. Much to my dismay, someone who came in long after I did, was taken to see the dr immediately & this person DID NOT HAVE AN APPT nor was he in any obvious discomfort!

When I was finally taken to an exam room, it was another 30 min before I was seen by a nurse. The nurses & other med staff are very efficient & personable. The dr however left much to be desired. He had the personality of an armadillo.

I was there for well over 3 hours. The dr & the front desk informed me that someone would call me first thing in the am with x-Ray & CBC Results. HA! When I did not hear anything from them by mid-morning, I placed a phone call & stated the nature of my call. I was asked to leave my name & phone # & was told my message would be "passed along." It is now late afternoon & no one has had the courtesy of returning my call.

URGENT CARE? No, not at this facility. You could drop dead here & they wouldn't even notice. While going to a Good Hospital ER would result in a much higher co-pay, the wait would be much less, the dr much more efficient & follow-up the following am would be done in a timely manner.

Hell would freeze over before I would recommend this facility to anyone, let alone return there ever again. THUMBS DOWN!

Pros: Parking, Nurses, X-Ray Tech

Cons: Waiting Time, Dr's Bedside Manner, Failure to Follow-Up As Promised, Failure to Return Phone Call

Doesn't care about anything. No need to go to a place like that when you aren't cared about. There are good doctors there and wonderful nurses, it's just a shame that they work there.
