MD Now Urgent Care Answering Need for Emergency Room Alternatives

MD Now Medical Centers, the fastest growing Urgent Care company in Florida today announced its newest urgent care opening in West Boynton Beach at 6699 W. Boynton Beach Boulevard. This latest announcement marks the eighth MD Now Urgent Care center in Palm Beach County, raising the total of MD Now Urgent Care centers to 13 across South Florida.

Palm Beach County is a hotbed of activity from golfing, boating, and equestrian events to as many “fun in the sun” beach-going that any place could offer. “With that much activity going on all the time, injuries and illnesses happen,” explained Peter Lamelas, M.D., CEO of MD Now Urgent Care. “With headquarters in Palm Beach County, MD Now sees a driving need to provide more ER alternatives for residents and visitors who want to see a doctor then quickly get back to their activities.”

The new West Boynton Beach MD Now Urgent Care will be staffed with a licensed physician onsite at all times who will treat patients with quick and efficient medical care for a variety of ailments, including:

  • Fevers, flu, upper respiratory infections
  • Sprains, strains and cuts
  • Broken bones, burns and more

All MD Now Urgent Care centers across South Florida offer additional services, like:

  • Digital X-rays, EKGs
  • Lab testing, physicals and immunizations
  • Occupational and travel medicine, as well as primary care services

“Costing a fraction of a trip to the ER, urgent care provides a much needed community service for those who can’t see their primary doctor and don’t want to incur the expense or long waits at a hospital emergency room,” said Lamelas. “We feel that by expanding MD Now Urgent Care centers to wider areas of South Florida we answer the call from those who want care when they need it most.”
