Time is money and since so many of us spend our time making money at work, making regular doctor appointments for you and your kids can slip by you. We went on-line to show us how click for care at the McGreevy Clinics works and how you can do it at work.

For those of you who are at a computer all day long and you know you need to make a doctor's appointment, Avera McKennan has made it very easy for you. Type in www.mcgreevyclinicavera.com their home page comes up. On the right hand of the screen you'll see "make an appointment on-line". Click on that. Then go to click for care.

Matt Nussbaum is the clinic manager at the McGreevy Clinic Avera Southeast and in Brandon. He says, "You just put in the request and we call you back. We even ask you what the best time to get back to you. So if you did it 11:00 last night and want us to get back to you between 3:00-5:00 the next day, that's what we will try our best to do to get back to you."

Maria Lavallee is one of the receptionists at the Main McGreevy Clinic Avera in Sioux Falls. If you are making an appointment on-line for this particular Clinic, you'll hear back from her.

Maria says, "We go on-line 3 to 4 times a day to see if patients tried to make an appointment. We simply call them back. We have everything set up before we call them so it's really as simple as a phone call so it's easy for us too."

All you have to do is pick one of the 6 McGreevy Clinics you want to go to and which doctor you want to be seen by. You select your top 3 choices of days and 3 different time blocks that work for you. This method is great for setting up annual exams, your kids physicals or even immunizations. You don't have to be an existing patient either. Convenience is the name of the game.

Maria says, "it's easier I think because we aren't doing phone calls back and forth. We don't have the patient calling in and we're booked and calling them back. We already have the extra times, extra options because you already entered them. You know your calendar."

Life is complicated enough, making a doctor's appointment doesn't have to be. Simply click for care.

The Click For Care program is in the process of being revamped for your convenience. Soon you will be able to set up a web account.. like you do for on-line banking... log in.. make appointments.. and you will get an email back with confirmation eliminating all phone calls.
