PHOENIX, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Cigna Medical Group (CMG) has announced the opening of two CMG CareToday walk-in medical clinics in Tolleson and Laveen, Ariz. This brings the total number of clinics to eight since CMG CareToday's launch in 2006.
Staffed with nurse practitioners and physician assistants, the clinics offer walk-in medical care for unscheduled patients with conditions such as colds, flu, sore throat, lower back pain, ear aches, bladder infections and pink eye. In addition, the clinics offer pregnancy tests and child and adult immunizations, including flu shots. School, sports and camp physicals are also available.
"CMG CareToday is a convenient alternative that can accommodate local residents who may be unable to see their primary care doctor because of time or other issues," said Corinne Bell, D.O., medical director for Cigna Medical Group's East Region and CMG CareToday clinics. "Expanding the number of CMG Care Today clinics provides residents with a place to go for non-emergency needs in the southwest Valley."
All CMG CareToday locations are currently offering a special $29 charge for first time visits and seasonal flu shots for $26. Most regular visits cost $59 and some lab services are only $10. A select number of generic prescription medications are available for only $10. CIGNA customers (and individuals covered under other accepted health plans) pay only their office visit co-pay or co-insurance. "Individuals could ultimately pay less at a CMG CareToday clinic for low acuity services than they would if those services were received at an urgent care clinic, making this an ideal economic alternative for medical care for walk-in or uninsured patients," adds Dr. Bell.
CMG CareToday Tolleson is located in the Pecan Promenade Shopping Center, 9870 W. Lower Buckeye Road, Suite 140, Phoenix, AZ 85353. More information is available by calling 623.478.7665.
CMG CareToday Laveen is located in the Laveen Village Center, 3535 W. Southern Ave., Suite 128, Phoenix, AZ 85041. More information is available by calling 602.276.5563.
All CMG CareToday locations are open to the public seven days a week and most holidays. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and most holidays. Appointments are never necessary and no insurance is required.
