Convenient DR Walk-In Medical Center Opens in Chelsea, NYC
Date:2/17/2010


NEW YORK, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The physicians of New York Walk In Medical Group, PC, are opening the doors today at the fifth "DR Walk-In Medical Center" in a Duane Reade Pharmacy in New York City.  The "Doctor on Premises" center will open at 10:00 a.m. at the new Duane Reade at 17th Street and Eighth Avenue in the Chelsea section of Manhattan.

The "Doctor on Premises" center offers busy New Yorkers a better alternative to going to the emergency room for many urgent and non-urgent medical problems. All of the clinics are staffed by licensed physicians who can take care of most common ailments, minor injuries, lacerations, routine screenings, vaccinations, and referrals to specialists. The Chelsea clinic is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with no appointment required.  It accepts most insurance plans.

"Walk in, neighborhood-based medical care is a growing trend in this country, and it's a very positive trend," said Dr. Maggie Bertisch, MD, Medical Director for New York Walk-In Medical Group PC. "It allows health care providers to offer a more convenient, affordable alternative to crowded emergency rooms, while delivering safe, quality medical care in a New York minute."  

After the patients are treated, the physicians refer them back to their local primary or specialty care physicians, maintaining the continuity of care. The clinics use electronic medical records to improve patient safety and communications with other health care professionals.  The medical practice is managed by CHS and is also affiliated with Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, giving the doctors and patients access to several of New York's top health care facilities.

The clinics are managed by Consumer Health Services, Inc. (CHS), the premier provider of on-site, physician-directed consumer health centers.  The first four centers have been so successful that Duane Reade is planning to add more on-site clinics in 2010.
