MD NOW® Expands to Second Location in Manatee County
It is the urgent care provider’s 5th clinic to open in Southwest Florida since October 2020
BRADENTON/WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – (12/28/20) MD NOW® Urgent Care, the largest urgent care provider in Florida, has opened a second location in Manatee County within the Lakewood Ranch community. The new physician-led, state-of-the-art clinic is located at 1838 Rye Road, Suite 107, Bradenton. MD Now opened a clinic at 4332 Cortez Road W. Road in early November and three in the Ft. Myers market in October 2020.
This marks MD Now’s first expansion outside of Southeast Florida and the Treasure Coast, bringing the total number of clinics to 56 statewide.
All MD Now clinics are open 365 days a year and patients are typically treated in an hour or less. MD Now’s physician-led services include:
- COVID-19 Evaluations and Testing
- Care for common illnesses and injuries
- Treatment for sprains, strains, and broken bones
- Injury care for cuts, scrapes, wounds, and abrasions
- Lab Testing
- Digital X-rays and EKGs
- Preventative Health Screenings
- Physicals for school, sports, camp, and work
“We are very proud to bring our brand of superior health care to the Bradenton market,” said Dr. Jeffrey Collins, MD Now’s Chief Medical Officer. “The area is in need of easily accessible quality urgent care options and we see an opportunity to make an immediate positive impact in the community.”
“MD Now is a convenient, less costly alternative to a typical emergency room or when you can’t get in to see your primary-care physician,” said Dr. Collins. “We think residents in the Sarasota/Bradenton area will appreciate saving both time and money should they ever need treatment for common injuries and illnesses.”
MD Now accepts most major insurances, but for those who don’t have insurance or have a very high deductible, it is now offering a membership-based DirectCare plan to create easier access to affordable health care services.
MD Now DirectCare gives individuals and families access to an array of services for a set monthly fee starting at $99. In addition to this offering, MD Now is also providing free flu shots* while supplies last and COVID-19 PCR and antibody testing for a fee.
