Rockwall Rapid Care Reviews
Amazing seriously just go here! My normal urgent care (texas med.) Was closed due to short staffing. I had symptoms of a severe kidney infection. Oh the irony because I educated patients in kidney failure for a job. So I looked online and signed in to go to rapid care. Best decision I could have made. 20 min. Later I arrived with my kids in tow. You pull up press a button on the intercom and someone comes out. Just as I was speaking to the tech at the window my 7yo projectile vomited ,(this is my life). She was totally fine apparently just needed to puke. It was everywhere in my car. The tech was amazing. He got me a trash bag gloves cleaner, water, and even a towel for my daughter to put on her booster seat. We joked that maybe she should be seen to. After cleaning up my one child we we're brought in, I gave my sample etc the normal stuff. They treated my kidney infection with meds. And on my way I went. They are awesome go here
As a retired RN and new to Texas i was impressed by the efficiency and cost savings when i found myself needing quick and efficient care on a Saturday afternoon. I recommend giving this hidden gem a try if you’re caught on a weekend and don’t want to spend your day waiting in an overcrowded ER/ urgent care.
Fantastic place. Highly organized with a dedicated, professional, welcoming staff. I’ve never been here before today and this will be my new go-to when I need medical assistance in a hurry.
I took a good fall yesterday & needed to get some X-rays done. After calling Carenow with a 4 hr wait & Medpost no X-rays that day, I stumbled across this place. It had 5 star reviews too. I decided to go & the appt process was super easy, checking in was a breeze, ZERO WAIT TIME (huge perk), the rooms were high tech, clean, and awesome chairs. I was in & out with X-rays done in 30 min!! I am a huge fan now & I will be singing their praises as they are much deserved. Thank you to the staff for your fast & efficient work.
Needed a sports physical at the last minute and they came to the rescue!

Breathing Problems FAQs
Can anxiety or stress cause breathing issues?
Yes, anxiety and stress can lead to shortness of breath or hyperventilation. However, it's crucial to rule out medical conditions as the cause. You should consult Dr. Fieldsmith for an accurate diagnosis.
Can exercise improve my breathing issues?
Exercise can indeed improve lung function and overall respiratory health. Activities like cardio workouts or aerobic exercises can increase lung capacity and stamina, making it easier to breathe. However, it's crucial to consult a healthcare provider before beginning a new exercise routine, especially if you have chronic breathing issues.
Is it normal for breathing issues to worsen at night?
Yes, some respiratory conditions like asthma can worsen at night due to factors such as cooler air or exposure to allergens in bedding. This phenomenon is known as "nocturnal asthma." If you notice breathing issues intensifying at night, consult Rockwall Rapid Care for proper diagnosis and treatment.
