MD Now Opens Its Second Miami Dade Urgent Care Center with More Planned

North Miami is the second of three MD Now Urgent Care Centers planned to open in Miami-Dade in 2014.

MD Now Medical Centers, the leading and fastest growing urgent care company in Florida, will open its 18th location on Monday, June 2, at 12555 Biscayne Boulevard in North Miami. The new 4,300 square foot facility gives area residents and visitors a second state-of-the-art urgent care center in Miami-Dade County. A third center is slated to open later this year.

“We look forward to providing state-of-the-art urgent care for the North Miami area. We chose this location to provide easy access for residents and visitors in Bal Harbour, Aventura and Miami Beach, as well as the nearby communities to the north, south, and west,” explained Peter Lamelas, M.D., CEO of MD Now Urgent Care. “We will be opening another location in Miami-Dade in 2014 and have three more sites under construction in Palm Beach, Broward, and east Fort Lauderdale. We plan to have at least 30 urgent care centers in South Florida by late 2015.”

MD Now provides fast, affordable, and convenient immediate medical care with a full scope of services and treatments for injuries and illnesses like colds, broken bones, dislocations, cuts, burns, allergic reactions, sprains, strains, and more. With unmatched healthcare accessibility, MD Now keeps all treatment under one roof, offering convenient access to comprehensive services.

Services at the North Miami location will include:

  • Medical evaluation & screenings
  • School, sports & camp physicals
  • Immunizations & vaccinations
  • X-rays, labs, IVs & EKGs
  • Stitches & minor surgery
  • Travel health
  • Job-related injuries/workers’ comp

Patients are seen quickly, treated and most on their way home home in less than 60 minutes, making MD Now Urgent Care centers the place to go for immediate access to healthcare when time matters most. This quick and efficient treatment, a hallmark of MD Now Urgent Care centers, extends to all patients, including those who simply need drug testing and pre-employment screenings. “We treat work-related injuries and illnesses with the utmost care and put employees back on the job in record time, compared to other types of medical providers who may require appointments or long waits in an ER setting,” said Dr. Lamelas.
