With the opening of our new West Flagler center, we can provide an affordable, quality alternative to the more expensive ER and hospital-affiliated urgent care centers.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 13, 2015
MD Now, the leading and fastest-growing urgent care provider in Florida, opened its 20th facility on Thursday, February 12. The newly constructed urgent care center will provide residents and visitors to the West Flagler area with easy access to state-of-the-art medical services without the high cost of ER and hospital-affiliated urgent care centers.
In addition to being MD Now’s 20th South Florida location, the new facility will be the third to serve Miami-Dade County. Located at 9971 W. Flagler Street in Miami, it’s ideally situated to serve the Fountainebleau, Sweetwater, West Flagler, Westchester and Doral communities. Additional MD Now centers are slated to open in the county later this year.
“The continued influx of new patients from Obamacare has created a shortage of healthcare options, resulting in longer wait times at the ER and Primary Care Physicians,” explains Peter Lamelas, M.D., CEO of MD Now Urgent Care. “With the opening of our new West Flagler center, we can provide an affordable, quality alternative to the more expensive ER and hospital-affiliated urgent care centers.“
MD Now provides fast, affordable, and convenient immediate medical care with a full scope of services and treatments for injuries and illnesses like colds, broken bones, dislocations, cuts, burns, allergic reactions, sprains, strains, and more. With unmatched healthcare accessibility, MD Now keeps treatment all under one roof, also offering convenient access to comprehensive services.
Specific services at the new West Flagler location include:
- Urgent care and episodic primary care
- Physical therapy
- Occupational medicine
- Digital X-ray and EKG services
- On site lab testing and more
Most patients are treated and released within 60 minutes or less, making MD Now Urgent Care centers the place to go for immediate access to healthcare when time matters most. This quick and efficient treatment, a hallmark of MD Now Urgent Care centers, extends to all patients. “We treat acute and episodic injuries and illnesses in adults and pediatrics with the utmost care, especially when compared to other types of medical providers who may require appointments or long waits in an ER setting,” said Lamelas.
