Local Doctor Taking Patients Uninsured

Posted: Updated:
Columbia County, GA -

If you are someone who is living on a budget, and you don't have medical insurance one local doctor is opening his doors six days a week to help you. With rates starting at $49.95 a month, you can have around the clock medical care.

Doctor Troy Coon works full time at Doctors Hospital in the emergency department. His personal experiences and passion for treating patients sparked the idea 12 months ago  to create "perfect health" an urgency care office  in Evans that will treat everyone-even the uninsured.

Jessica Chapman an Augusta resident says, "It's nice to know that there's a facility now that not only does he want to help people, but he's bending over backwards to be available to you when you need him."

Modern technology allows Doctor Coon to treat patients over the phone or web. He says he never wants people to waste their time or money for a diagnoses and treatment that could be made over the phone.

Troy Coon says, "For those people who do have insurance and you haven't met your deductible, you come to the ER for a sore throat after hours, you may pay 700-800 bucks. That service is almost a crime to the individual, and there's really nothing out there."

Doctor Coon's facility-Perfect Health 24/7 focuses on three areas: weight loss support, men's health and all urgent care needs. Coon says their office can do everything any other doctor's office will do-except for a cheaper price at a quicker rate.  In fact, a family of three can be treated for 90 dollars a month.

Doctor Coon explains, "People are spending hundreds of hundreds of dollars at ER , mainly because they don't have access they can't get in to see their doctor, or they take a half day off of work just to sit there for three hours when they could be seen in three minutes. We can take care of most issues by the telephone or email. They can come by the office if it's something quick."

Doctor Coon admits the Affordable Health Care Act taking effect in 2014 influenced his decision to open the facility.

 

"The biggest problem with it is what's going to be the new influx of patients. What's estimated 30-34 million new people coming into the health care system that's already over worked, says Coon."

 

Coon says his full staff of eight and 24/7 on call services will help eliminate the expected wait times. Their goal is to provide everyone the chance to obtain a healthy life style.
