Use Urgent Care

"I just want to pay a big compliment to the Kneibert Clinic Urgent Care. I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful service in our town. The ads that they run about their lower cost, their shorter waiting time, are absolutely true. I only have to pay my CO-pay. I don’t have to pay a huge ER visit, and I have found that their hours are really great. I have had to use them unfortunately a few times the last few months, and it is very clean, you are not crowded up like cattle going through, and for the minor things that come up with my kids that I can’t wait a week for them to see their own doctor, it has just been perfect. A lot of people don’t understand that when your child has a bad ear infection and you go to the emergency room, you are just going to see the nurse practitioner, but you are going to be charged the same price as if you had seen a specialist physician. Now, when we go to Urgent Care we always see a doctor and on certain days, you actually see a pediatrician for your kids. Now how wonderful is that? Now, if your pediatrician is out, most pediatricians here in town will not see your child unless they have access to your child’s records. I found out that the hard way, so I encourage other people that have minor medical problems - not talking heart attacks or broken bones here - but people who still see a doctor, they are hurting, they are in pain, they are vomiting, what have you, use Urgent Care. I think they are open seven days a week and we actually had to go there on Christmas Eve and I can’t brag hard enough on those people. They are all nice, from the receptionist to the doctors. We were in and out of there in 30 minutes. It was wonderful. Thank you."

enrich record-setting production of A Christmas Carol - Kneibert
Clinic Assistant Administrator Tom Warner, along
with three other Knibert Clinic staff members, took part
in the hit Christmas play "A Christmas Carol" at
Rodgers Theater in Poplar Bluff for six performances in December
2003. Attendance for the play broke previous Stage
Company production numbers. Linda Hutchcraft, a family nurse
practitioner at Kneibert Clinic, directed the play, and Jean
Redding, Kneibert EKG supervisor, was assistant director.
Cindy Million, Kneibert special billing receptionist,
played a memorable first lady in the play and had her long
golden hair specially curled for the production. She previously
performed in a Stage Company production 15 years ago. "We
had just under 1,000 people attend the six perfformances.
That's the best we've ever done," Hutchcraft said. "Initially
I thought it would do okay. It's a well known play.
...The dinner theater was filled to capacity .It was the
first one for our town." Warner gave a stirring performance
as Marley's ghost. It was Warner's
debut at the Rodgers.
