Q: Why is it so inexpensive to be seen at your Walk-In Clinic facility?
By charging only $70 (close to most co-pays) for an office visit at our urgent care and walk-in clinic, Dr. Parsa has made healthcare affordable and easy without compromising professionalism and integrity.
Q: How can your Urgent Care and Walk-In Clinic Facility be less expensive on other services?
We are committed to providing the best possible healthcare at the lowest cost. Thus, have partnered with laboratories and imaging centers for reduced costs for our patients. In addition, lower overhead has resulted in substantially lower costs of in-house labs, medication, injectables, and medical procedures.
Q: What are the qualifications of the doctor?
Dr. Parsa studied pre-med at the University of California where he received a bachelor degree in biological sciences. He attended medical school at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, and after graduation, he completed his residency at Tulane University Medical Center. He became board certified (AAPS) in Family Medicine.
Since May 1994, he has practiced medicine in Alabama. He first started practice in Demopolis. He then moved to Montgomery where he worked for urgent care and had his own practice. After moving to Birmingham, he did a lot of locum tenens throughout Alabama in family medicine, occupational medicine, and integrative medicine. In February of 2003, started his own private practice, QuickCare Family Medicine.
