Hydration Therapy Keeping You Safe This Summer

Urgent Care 24/7 has a new and innovative way to make sure you’re hydrated and healthy as quickly as possible!  Next time you’re feeling faint or ill, stop into Urgent Care 24/7 and we’ll get you feeling better in no time!  

It’s been called a health fad and even a celebrity trend, but according to Urgent Care 24/7 Owner Dr. Jerry Williams, IV Therapy is no joke.

At any Urgent Care 24/7 location, you can go in and get what they call “Hydration Therapy,” and Williams tells News 3 especially during the summer months, they see plenty of patients.

“Frequently when patients come in with dehydration they’re behind the curve, they’re behind the 8 ball,” he said. “We have to get in front of that curve and get them back under control.”

The treatments cost $99 each and can include anything from basic vitamins, minerals and electrolytes to medicines to combat nausea or upset stomach; which is how the therapy earned its other nickname… “The Hangover Cure in a Bag.”

“They’re some of our most satisfied customers,” said Williams. “They come in and they’re just miserable and then we give them, the fluids make a big difference but the medications we give make them feel better fast.”

But Williams explains that it is always preferable and better for you to maintain your hydration orally.

He recommends drinking plenty of water and being preventative while you’re out in the heat, to avoid ever getting to the point of needing an IV.

Urgent Care 24/7 Tampa

Testimonials

Experience was great! Parking was available on the street up-front. Their "check-in" person/professional was a nurse or paramedic (not just a business major or medical clerk) who was able to screen at a pretty advanced level (and just a cool dude). The paperwork wasn't so bad. They don't take insurance, but the administrative overhead that comes with insurance (government regulations, etc). makes it a wise move to avoid. I just used an HSA. The doctor/PA came into the exam room within a reasonable time period and purposely seemed to linger to ensure his body language was conveying "i'm here for you" which was helpful. I'm a bit against antibiotics, due to bad experiences and medical tendency to over-prescribe them, but the doctor was receptive to my concerns. The "check in" medical professional intelligently answered my questions. I took some shots and selfishly would have wanted to hit the road, but they advised me to stick around for 15 minutes. This advice was critical since my body had a "pain response" for 10 mins (lightheaded/cold/hot/sweat)... which would have been a dangerous drive, but I suddenly felt MUCH better. As someone with an entrepreneurial itch, I was very impressed with the lean, efficient, and effective shop they run! It's not "cheap", but it's on the high-end of "fair" for the quality they deliver... assuming you budget for some medical expenses throughout the year (which I do).

Fantastic experience, parking was extremely convenient for the location and I was seen right away. Even when they're not busy they're on top of their game. Great clinic, wonderful staff, they get a very strong recommendation.

This place is great! I felt like I've had the cold for almost a month and they treated me right away. I was in there for no more than an hour. The staff, Raymond and Melissa, were super patient with explaining what could be making me feel bad, medications and really nice/approachable overall. They really go out of the way to make you feel comfortable in a medical setting

The staff here is amazing. Very warm and personable. Took very good care of me. I wish I lived in Atlanta just so I could always return to them whenever I’m not feeling well.

Morgan Mceachin

Absolutely wonderful service. I’m a nurse myself, and the care I received at this facility from Tori and the PA who saw me (I can’t remember his name) was beyond excellent. It was my wedding rehearsal day, and I came in in pretty bad shape. Both providers showed so much concern and compassion, I felt immediate relief just knowing I was in good hands. Thank you for all you do! I’d recommend anyone and everyone to this facility!

Rachel Steeb

I took my boyfriend here after he cut himself badly on a school project. We were greeted immediately and taken to a room where the nurse explained very clearly the price and process of the visit. It was absolutely one of the fastest visits to a doctor either one of us has ever experienced. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this urgent care to anyone for quick and thorough care.
