Doctors Express provides a real solution for people who are looking for easy access to convenient, affordable, non-life threatening healthcare services. By offering walk-in urgent medical care, from board-certified physicians, trained in urgent and emergency care, patients can get the immediate attention they seek, every day of the year.

Recent studies show that nearly one-third of all emergency room visits are to treat non-life threatening conditions, that could be handled at an urgent care facility. Factor in the higher cost associated with many ER visits, longer wait times and overcrowding1, it isn’t surprising that consumers are turning to urgent care as an alternative. A National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey shows that the difference in cost between an ER visit and one to Urgent Care, for the same diagnosis, was significant at $583 versus $228 respectively2.

The Doctors Express Difference
· All patients are handled in a single visit: initial doctor’s exam, lab work, x-rays, minor surgical procedures.
· Every patient is seen by an experienced physician, trained in urgent and emergency care.
· Services are affordable and most insurance, including Medicare, is accepted. Those who pay with cash receive a significant discount.

The Doctors Express team can diagnose and treat a wide variety of medical needs, utilizing their state-of-the art digital X-ray and on-site laboratory. In addition to walk-in care services, the Doctors Express Center provides pre-op physicals, and same-day sports and camp physicals. For area businesses, the center offers medical treatment for workplace injuries covered by Workers’ Compensation, drug and alcohol screenings, pre-employment physicals, as well as travel immunizations and vaccinations.
