CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., July 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As we approach the long weekend, families across the country are planning for outdoor activities to celebrate the Fourth of July. However, they are not planning for the unexpected illnesses and injuries that may arise during their Independence Day celebrations.
Before the rise of walk-in urgent care clinics, like PhysicianOne Urgent Care, the only option for treating non-life threatening illnesses and injuries was the emergency room. Emergency rooms have an average wait time of four hours and have high costs for care. PhysicianOne Urgent Care, founded in 2008, with locations in Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts offers a solution: quality medical care for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries, 365 days per year.
"We provide access to quality medical care when a patient's primary care doctor is unavailable, such as holidays, weekends, and after normal business hours," said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, PhysicianOne Urgent Care co-founder and Chief Medical Officer. "And, our experienced providers offer that care at a fraction of the cost of the emergency room, with a significantly reduced wait time, allowing patients to spend more quality time with family."
All PhysicianOne Urgent Care locations are open Monday, July 4th, and this weekend, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
