Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) January 08, 2015
MedPost Urgent Care, a national operator of walk-in clinics across the U.S., opened a new location at 2010 E Carson Street on Monday, November 17. The Long Beach urgent care clinic is located in the Long Beach Towne Center near the intersection with Cherry Avenue.
MedPost Long Beach is open every day of the week with board certified emergency medicine and family medicine doctors and physician assistants on-site from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. The clinic welcomes walk-in patients and offers online check in at MedPost.com for those wanting to save their spot in line.
A growing company, MedPost now operates nine urgent care centers in Southern California, with locations in Anaheim Hills, Brea, Cerritos, Costa Mesa, Cypress, La Habra, Long Beach, Placentia and Yorba Linda. MedPost also operates urgent care centers in Paso Robles and La Quinta, with plans to continue to grow in the state.
“Our goal is to provide the right type of care at the right time in a convenient and compassionate way,” said Medical Director Henry Schumaker, MD. “We play an important role in providing timely care for patients when their primary care physician is not available, for those who are without a regular doctor, and for patients who need acute care but wish to avoid the longer waits and higher cost of a hospital emergency room visit.”
MedPost offers convenient and affordable urgent care services for pediatric and adult patients in the Orange and Southeast LA County communities. As an alternative to the emergency department, MedPost Urgent Care makes it their goal to offer shorter wait times for patients with non-life threatening medical issues. MedPost accepts most major insurance plans, as well as credit cards and cash.
The Long Beach clinic offers treatment for a wide range of issues, 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 clinic is equipped with X-ray machines and various in-house labs with the ability to send out for other labs for more sophisticated testing.
MedPost Urgent Care focuses on providing patients of all ages with complete urgent care services in a welcoming atmosphere at their new walk-in clinic in Long Beach. MedPost also provides health and wellness tips and interesting content on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
