Orange County, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
MedPost Urgent Care, a national operator of walk-in clinics across the U.S., opened a new location in La Habra on Wednesday, October 1 and one in Yorba Linda on Monday, October 20. The La Habra clinic is located at 1040 W. Imperial Highway, and the Yorba Linda location is at 20635 Yorba Linda Boulevard.
Both MedPost clinics are open every day of the week with healthcare providers on-site from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. The clinics accept online appointments at MedPost.com, as well as walk-in patients.
A growing company, MedPost now operates eight urgent care centers in Orange County, with locations in Anaheim Hills, Brea, Cerritos, Costa Mesa, Cypress, La Habra, Placentia and Yorba Linda. A new center is planned for Long Beach later this year. MedPost is also expanding elsewhere in California, as well as in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.
“Our goal is to provide the right type of care at the right time in a convenient and compassionate way,” said Dr. Clark Lew, Medical Director at MedPost Yorba Linda. “We play an important role in providing timely care for people when their primary care physician is not available and also for those individuals who are without a regular doctor, while relieving the strain on busy emergency departments that are equipped to handle more serious patient conditions.”
MedPost offers pediatrics and urgent care services to the Orange County community that are both accessible and affordable. As an alternative to the emergency department, MedPost Urgent Care makes it their goal to offer short wait times for patients with non-life threatening medical issues. They also accept most major insurance plans, as well as credit cards and cash.
Both the La Habra and Yorba Linda clinics are staffed with board certified physician specialists in emergency medicine and family medicine with an expertise in urgent care, as well as other health professionals who offer treatment for everything from broken bones to cuts to various medical illnesses. Wellness services like flu shots, sports physicals and STD testing are available to the public. The urgent care clinics are also equipped with X-ray machines and various in-house labs with the ability to send out for other labs or more sophisticated testing.
“If your condition requires more specialized services, we can refer you to top specialists in the area,” said Dr. Allen Houshiar of MedPost La Habra.
MedPost Urgent Care focuses on providing patients of all ages with complete urgent care services in a welcoming atmosphere at their new walk-in clinics in La Habra and Yorba Linda. MedPost also provides health and wellness tips and interesting content on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
