About the Clinic
Byars Family QuikCare is a health and wellness clinic exclusively for the Employees of the C.A. Jones Management Group. As a benefit of your employment, regardless of whether you are full-time, parttime or temporary status, you can take advantage of our Nurse Practitioner services without paying your usual co-pay regardless of insurance coverage! The only services for which you will be responsible are diagnostic testing done at another location or performed by a different entity. For instance, should we suspect a broken bone we will send you to the facility of your choice for X-ray. In this case, you would be responsible for the cost incurred by the X-ray. Should the X-ray prove that you do have a fracture, we will refer you to a specialist whose services are not covered by the benefits you receive from Byars Family QuikCare. The same applies to blood work ordered during a visit that must be sent to an outside lab. In both cases your insurance will be billed directly by the facility, Laboratory, or Specialist and will be applied to your deductible. Testing done onsite that does not have to be sent out is part of your visit, and there is no extra charge to you as an employee. Examples of these tests include Mono, Strep, Flu, Pregnancy, and simple Urinalysis. And, of course, you will be responsible for any medications that may be prescribed when you fill them at your pharmacy. Because we see only minor illnesses and injuries and offer preventative care we expect your cost to insurance or out of pocket will be very minimal. In fact, most employees will not require additional testing nor incur any extra expenses at all when seen at Byars Family QuikCare! While we are not currently seeing the dependents of employees, we do have plans to do so, adding an additional convenience for you and yours! At Byars Family QuikCare we realize that a healthcare visit can be a time consuming adventure. This can be discouraging when you feel unwell, but have responsibilities to fulfill. Our mission is to provide the highest quality care with the least disruption to your busy day. Because we recognize the value of everyoneâ€™s time, we pledge short waits and thorough, efficient, problem-focused care that will have you feeling better and on your way in no time! Just give us a call to let us know what works best for you and we will reserve that time and attention just for you! You can also call to tell us you are on your way and we will accommodate your needs as quickly as possible. Byars Family QuikCare has implemented the latest technology to ensure quality care and convenience. Our electronic medical record is among the newest and most innovative in the industry. Because it provides lightening speed real time IT support and utilizes the latest in iPad technology, it allows us to spend more face to face time with you. With this system you can view portions of your medical record, along with the most current patient education materials and communicate with us online should you have questions. With this system we can send appointment reminders to your personal computer or mobile device and answer any questions you may have. In addition, you may elect to access your medication list, diagnostic history, allergies, immunizations, and appointments ( past and upcoming) from the privacy of your own home with the click of a button!

• Sore Throat • Sprains/Strains • Seasonal Allergies • Stomach Upset • Urinary Tract Infections • Minor Lacerations • Poison Ivy • Insect Bites • Colds • Sunburn • Flu
