1. Finding The Right Match

Finding the right place for your medical needs is much like finding the right primary care doctor. Feeling comfortable with your physician is a critical step in choosing the right Maui Urgent Care Center. Before you walk in the door, call and ask if you can speak to an available physician. Ask him or her questions about how they handle medical conditions such as, do they take a more traditional approach, or do they recommend alternative treatment options? Once you feel comfortable with their style of care, you’ll feel more confident that you’re choosing the right medical provider. In addition to the style of care, you should also ask how long your physician has lived in Hawaii. The islands are home to very unique organisms that visitors can find themselves allergic to, including flowers like protea, foods such as poi, and marine life like Potters Angel fish and sea fan coral. These rare flora and fauna only exist here or in just a few remote areas in the world, so visitors are unlikely to have had any previous contact with them. That’s why a local physician who understands what to look for and the right questions to ask is crucial to making the right diagnosis so you can get better faster, and back to enjoying your vacation.

2. Accessibility

Maui, and in particular the east side of the island, has many remote areas that are popular visitor destinations but far from the commercial hubs where most urgent care centers are located. For instance, if you were staying at the Travaasa Hotel in Hana, Maui, and needed to visit your nearest urgent care clinic, you’d have drive 4-5 hours to get there, which would result in you missing an entire day of your vacation in paradise. In many cases finding a Maui-based urgent care center that offers telemedicine visits is the best option for accessing medical care. Having the ability to see your Hawai’i-licensed physician from your computer, tablet, or mobile device can save you time and help you quickly decide whether you need to make a trip into the nearest urgent care center or hospital. In most instances, your doctor can fax or call in a prescription to the nearest pharmacy saving you hours of travel time.

3. Affordability

When searching for the right urgent care center in Maui it’s important to ask about payment and coverage options. Many urgent care centers offer only local insurance including HMA, UHA, HMMA or Kaiser Your Choice coverage that can result in a higher out-of-pocket cost for visitors. Calling and asking about coverage before you show up can save you time and money. No insurance? Don’t worry, most walk-in clinics offer a rate for people without insurance — but you’ll want to know up front what those costs are so you can make the most informed healthcare decision.

4. Ask The Experts

Your hotel or timeshare concierge provides a great place to start your urgent care search. They deal with hundreds of visitors and are very familiar the activities that can result in injuries for the under or unprepared, like ocean dives, surf schools, and day hikes in more rugged areas. Consequently, they have relationships with the closest urgent care centers. As soon as you determine that you need care, make your concierge the first stop on your journey to feeling better.

5. Dig Deeper

Once you have a few walk-in care locations in mind, go online and read about experiences other visitors have had. Check sites like Yelp, Google Places, Facebook and the urgent care centers’ websites for customer testimonials and star ratings. Picking a location that has good reviews and clinic pictures will help reduce your anxiety, make a more informed healthcare decision, and result in a better overall medical care experience.

One of the most often asked questions of Zumba instructors is about what is the best dance fitness shoes or sneakers to wear to a class. This beats out the second most often asked question which is can I lose weight by doing this type of dancing aerobic workout.

Zuumba as it sometimes misspelled, is really an aerobic work out which brings together Latin based dance moves as well as conditioning steps.

However, everyday workout footwear just wont cut it.

It doesn’t have the necessary support, comfort or the ability to absorb shock. It may also be too heavy to properly execute the Zumba moves. The ideal dance fitness shoe is lightweight and does not have grips on the bottom or sole.

So, how do you get the best aerobic sneakers or shoes?

Fortunately for all of us, with the ever-increasing worldwide recognition of the effectiveness of fitness classes there is a decent selection of footwear available to us today. This is great for those of us that have a hard time with getting the proper shoe size and/or because our feet are too slender, too wide, or if we have elevated arches.

Some of the major brand names, including Zumba, can provide you with a decent selection of cardio or aerobic shoes. Companies like Nike, Ryka, Avia, and Sansha just to name a few.

One neat trick that I have found to make any shoe more comfortable, is to purchase a cushion insole that’s made out of gel. This not only makes it more pleasurable to where it also absorbs some of the shock that comes from the dancing moves.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get back to how to pick a dance fitness shoe for your Zumba fitness workout.

If you’re used to searching online, you will probably find some decent reviews of the different manufacturers. Such as the ones I listed above. Another way to find out what type of workout shoe you should use is to ask your aerobic workout instructor. Many times, they have already done all the research for you. Since, they usually spend a great deal of time teaching.

So for them having the proper aerobic shoe is perhaps a little more important than it might be to an occasional dance class participants.

Let me leave you with one last tip. Whatever manufacturer you choose, make sure that they offer some kind of money back guarantee. You really won’t know too much about how comfortable, supportive or shock absorbing the sneaker is until you try it out in class.

Some of the better retailers will allow you to return them or exchange them even after you have worn them once.
