|Description||Helping patients find urgent care|
UrgentCareGURU offers the largest directory of urgent care in the United States, providing the information patients desire in order to find care quickly. Patients can search the over 4,700 urgent care listings, which cover all 50 states, by selecting their type of health insurance, the medical treatment they need, or even what time they need to visit a clinic. Geo-location technology is used to locate patients and provide a listing of clinics that are nearby their location.
The company was founded by two brothers, David and Thomas Alton, who were inspired to create a better way for patients to find care after David experienced a long night of waiting in an Emergency Room for a minor condition. UrgentCareGURU’s headquarters are in the Houston, TX area, but they also maintain a presence in Austin, TX to take advantage of the booming tech scene.
