Women’s health treated skillfully, fast at Rockwall Care United clinic

By J.J. Smith. Royse City resident Lisa Fry had experienced the symptoms of post-partum depression before.

After giving birth to her seven-year-old daughter she frequently had insomnia, felt irritable and overwhelmed, shed many tears, plus had many mood swings but didn’t realize she was experiencing post partum blues while her hormonal changes were settling down.

This time, when she noticed that she wasn’t feeling “right” – three months after the recent birth of her second daughter, Isabella, at Baylor Garland – she wanted to treat the symptoms properly.

“I had it before, after I gave birth to my seven-year-old daughter, but I didn’t know it at the time. This time I wanted to get it handled the right way.”

Since it was Sunday – “the Steelers were playing,” she said – and her doctor was unavailable, she decided to visit the Care United Medical Center which she said she’d seen a hundred times before next to the Rockwall Walmart Supercenter on I-30.

“I didn’t want to spend all day at the doctor,” she explained. “So I decided to try it.”

“They were all so nice. I never felt like I was being judged for being paranoid or something. Dr. Mittal was so helpful and she was so nice. It was the best medical experience I have ever had!”

Now Fry says she’s never going back to a doctor’s office again.

“Every time I go in to Care United they are so eager to help for whatever is wrong. I love that place. I’ll never go back to a doctor’s office again. It’s so quick to get in and out of there, too.”

She said even her seven-year-old daughter is not afraid to go to the doctor at Care United now.

“I’ve gone back to Care United for flu shots and several other minor things. Because I took my daughter and she saw first-hand how well they treated me, she’s not even afraid to go to the doctor there now.”

Rowlett resident and Richland Community College student Jenna Bishop says she also has very positive feelings about the way they treat women at Care United, with locations east of Walmart in Rockwall and in Forney on Old FM 548.

When she recently visited the Rockwall clinic for her annual female exam she said the staff was exceptionally friendly and nice.

“They provide really good customer service,” she explained. “They call and remind you about your prescriptions, plus always call to check up on you after an appointment. Dr. Mittal made me feel really comfortable and provided me with lots of information about needed actions.”

“They are also very affordable for people who don’t have insurance,” she added.

Bishop said, for example, she only paid $62 at the time for a female physical, including an exam by a doctor, pap smear, fasting lipid panel and complete metabolic panel. Care United was offering a special “Giving Back To The Community Tuesday” price in August, valued at $299.

At that time men had only to pay $22 for a physical, including an exam by a physician, PSA test (prostate specific antigen), fasting lipid panel and complete metabolic panel.

Free sports physicals were also offered to students going back to school.

Currently Care United is offering flu shots for just $15, plus providing a special, physician-assisted weight loss program for just $249. Patients may pay $125 down for the first month and the balance at their second month visit.

According to Rockwall clinic medical director Shilpi Mittal M.D, who is board certified in family medicine, the clinic regularly staffs board certified physicians and physician’s assistants to quickly diagnose and treat all minor emergencies, family medicine and occupational medicine.

Treatment includes but is not limited to sprains, cuts and bruises, wound care, fractures, eye injuries, ear infections, sore throats and colds, fevers, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, allegies, minor skin rashes, infections, minor burns and sexually-transmitted diseases.

They also have state-of-the-art radiology equipment to assist in the diagnosis of fractures and the presence of foreign bodies.

No appointment is needed and lab services are onsite. Cash, check and credit cards are accepted, including VISA, MasterCard, Discover & American Express.
