Better Faster Urgent Care Center

Other Link Better Faster Urgent Care Center


Better Faster is a brand new, state-of-the-art Urgent Care center in Southlake, Texas. It was founded in 2013 by Alan Dennington, MD, a board certified Emergency Medicine physician. Alan felt like most urgent care centers did not have the capability to take care of many urgent problems and frequently had to send these patients to the Emergency Room to complete non-emergent care. He developed Better Faster Urgent Care to be a next generation urgent care provider, or what he terms Urgent Care Plus. This means they have all of the capabilities of other urgent care centers, but offer an extended array of services including extended laboratory, IV fluids, IV antibiotics, and mild sedation for procedures that aren’t offered at other area urgent care clinics.

Their providers all have extensive training and experience in Emergency Medicine. To the layperson, this may not seem like a big deal, but what it ultimately means is that their training is more highly focused on taking care of people who are sick. Emergency Medicine involves a broad training in all aspects of medicine including orthopedics, pediatrics, intensive care, internal medicine, surgery, and gynecology with a special emphasis on taking care of patients with acute injury and illness.
