GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glendale Heights residents now have a solution to their urgent and unexpected heath care needs. A new Physicians Immediate Care clinic opened today at 335 E. Army Trail Road, near Bloomingdale Road. The clinic’s medical team treats injuries and illnesses, no appointment necessary, seven days a week (7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends).
“Questions about health issues can create a lot of anxiety. People worry about things like ‘Is it serious?’, ‘Do I need stitches?’ or ‘Can I afford it?’” said Dr. Kathleen Talamayan, one of the Glendale Heights attending physicians. “Certain injuries and illnesses simply can’t wait. When someone in Glendale Heights can’t get into their doctor and it isn’t severe enough for the ER, we’re here to help. We cure the worry residents have about their health.”
The 4,100 square-foot Glendale Heights facility features eight exam rooms for treating injuries and illnesses and performing minor surgical procedures, including two trauma rooms, a pediatric room and a hearing booth. To diagnose a fracture or broken bone, the clinic has a digital x-ray system operated by a licensed Radiologic Technologist. Physicians Immediate Care also offers on-site lab work, some prescription drugs and supplies such as crutches, slings, splints and back supports.
“Our patients have the benefit of seeing a doctor who is able to diagnose, treat patients, and prescribe medication as needed,” Dr. Talamayan said. “In addition, our clinic focuses on getting patients in as quickly as possible, but we never rush care. We always take the time to treat each patient thoroughly.”
Immediate care is not only convenient, but also cost-effective. Physicians Immediate Care accepts health insurance and offers a 30 percent discount* for those without insurance.
Physicians Immediate Care held a grand opening event with members of the Glendale Heights Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 15, and community residents toured the new clinic, met its doctors and staff and participated in activities to “cure worry” at an open house on Jan. 19.
“It was great to meet members of the community during our open house event and to get to know them in advance of our opening,” said Dr. Talamayan. “Our goal is to ‘cure worry’ and bring peace of mind to the Glendale Heights community.”
Beyond urgent care, Physicians Immediate Care provides occupational health services seven days a week – offering prompt, affordable care for work injuries, employee physicals and drug and alcohol testing. To help Glendale Heights employers lower their workers’ compensation costs, the team expertly balances employee care with each company’s unique business needs.
