The founders of CareStat Urgent Health Centers, Dr. Jonathan Gusdorff and his wife Jaime, have acquired ExpressCare Urgent & Family Medicine of Maryland, a chain of four urgent care centers in Pennsylvania. The two companies were founded by physicians and have a combined experience of more than 10 years. They hope to help more Philadelphia residents avoid the long wait times and high costs of emergency rooms.
Unlike emergency rooms, urgent care centers can treat minor illnesses and injuries without requiring an appointment. Consumers can save time and money by using an urgent care center for their medical needs. Patients can walk in, receive treatment, and pay a fraction of the cost of an emergency room visit. The centers also offer online appointment booking, which makes it easy to make an appointment when you need it. The center’s staff will make you feel comfortable.
An urgent care center is a convenient, low-cost alternative to an urgent care center. They provide treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. Many offer preventative care services, such as flu shots and immunizations. Moreover, a typical urgent care center can act as a primary healthcare provider, saving you from a costly visit to a primary care clinic. Some of these centers also provide pediatric urgent care.
