Get in. Get Better. Get Home.
Welcome to the new Baystate Urgent Care center!
We are committed to providing quality after hours urgent care for urgent medical issues that occasionally come up. Although our preference is that you see your primary care physician for medical concerns, we understand that this is not always possible. Our urgent care center was opened with an eye towards:
- Providing excellent and timely medical care for urgent medical issues.
- Communicating with your primary care physician to make sure your doctor understands what has been happening with your health.
- Making sure that you have appropriate follow up with your primary care physician.
By offering after hours care we can help keep patients out of the Emergency Department for minor illnesses, thus decreasing medical costs in the form of co-pays, as well as avoiding long waits.
As a board certified Family Practice Physician who continues to see pediatric and adult patients in a regular office setting, I understand the importance of educating patients about their illness and coordinating care with their primary care physician to improve health outcomes.
If you have any questions about the services that we provide, please feel free to give us a call and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.
