February 27, 2009 - The Doctors Clinic will open their second PromptCare, a walk-in, urgent care medical service where no appointment is needed.
The newest PromptCare will be located in Poulsbo and opens Monday, March 2, 2009. PromptCare will share space with The Doctors Clinic’s existing facility located at 19245 7th Avenue (corner of 7th Avenue and Iverson).
“Having a PromptCare in Poulsbo will make it easier for those in the north end of the county experiencing unpredictable times of accident and illness. Now they can receive same day medical care delivered by board-certified physicians,” states Brian P. Wicks, President of The Doctors Clinic.
PromptCare treats such things as coughs, sore throats, cuts, scrapes, breaks and other non-life threatening injuries. Fully staffed with physicians experienced in treating sudden illnesses and injuries, PromptCare eliminates unnecessary trips to the emergency room. Digital X-ray and laboratory are also available on-site.
PromptCare is accessible to anyone needing to see a doctor right away, including new residents and visitors to our community.
PromptCare has extended evening and weekend hours. Urgent care hours in Poulsbo will be:
· 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM, Monday thru Friday
· 8:30 AM- noon, Saturday
“Our goal with PromptCare is to take care of your urgent medical needs. The Doctors Clinic comprehensive referral network is available for on-going primary and specialty care,” comments Wicks.
Note: At times urgent care services are not appropriate. For emergency situations which threaten life or limb, involve uncontrolled bleeding, loss of consciousness or treatment cannot be delayed without serious side effects on one’s health, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.
