An Emergency Room that Feels Like Home

by Sarah Warburton

“I’ve known Dr. Shannon Orsak and his brother Brian Orsak since they were first getting ready to open St. Michael’s Emergency Rooms in Sugar Land,” says Michael Garfield, the “High-Tech Texan.” You can find Michael on KPRC radio and TV stations across the state, and he trusts St. Michael’s to keep himself and his family healthy. He says, “I make a living from my voice, but talking all day takes a toll. When Dr. Orsak heard how hoarse I was at an event, he told me to come by St. Michael’s. They got me the treatment I needed…and gave me truly personal care.”

“As the father of three sons (including two who are driving), it’s good to know St. Michael’s is there for us. We’ve all been in for everything from a broken ankle to knee injuries to flu tests. With three active boys, there was a time when St. Michael’s was practically our second home! Kids love the comfortable waiting room with a TV, leather couches, and candy (or coffee for parents). I’ve always appreciated bringing them to a place that is welcoming and not at all scary. You’ll see many of the same doctors and nurses every time…they’ve got a real family feel. In fact, I’ve been known to drop by when I’m in the area just for a chat. Can you imagine being that comfortable with any other emergency room?”

“I live here in Fort Bend, and it means a lot to me that St. Michael’s supports our community. They sponsor local schools and sports teams and really get involved. You may have seen me working at one of their booths…because I believe in spreading the word!”

Why would you settle for less than the best? St. Michael’s offers everything you need from an ER––physicians trained in emergency medicine, X-ray, Ultrasound and CT, and an on-site diagnostic lab––in a welcoming environment without a wait! You’ll pay the same ER price for concierge service at St. Michael’s as you would pay at a standard ER…or even less. St. Michael’s ER is in-network with AETNA and also accepts more than 200 insurance plans, including Cigna, Blue Cross, United, and Humana. At this time, Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare do not participate with free-standing ER’s.

“No one ever wants to go to an emergency room,” says Michael, “but it’s a fact of life that emergencies happen. It’s great to have St. Michael’s just around the corner. I know we’ll always get in and out quickly… and enjoy superior care with a smile from familiar faces!”’
