Now Offering Flu Shots and Instant COVID-19 Tests —
Urgent Care + TeleHealth is pleased to announce that they have opened a new urgent care clinic in Benicia, CA. The clinic is conveniently located at 1387 E. 2nd Street which is close to downtown Benicia and just off the 780 freeway.
“We started this clinic to provide an alternative healthcare delivery model for Benicia that is quicker, faster and cheaper than an emergency room. In fact, 2/3 of the patients that are seen in an emergency room can be seen, treated, and evaluated at Urgent Care.”
- Ian Ahwah, MD, Emergency Medicine Physician
Founded by an emergency medicine physician with over 20 years’ experience, the new clinic will care for people of all ages, providing urgent care, employer health services and basic wellness and prevention services. Walk-in treatment is available for everyday illness and injury – including treatment for fall and winter ailments such as colds, flu and upper respiratory infections – as well as for more advanced services including X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches and treatment for broken bones, sprains and strains.
The clinic is currently offering flu vaccines and instant COVID-19 tests which provide a result in 20 minutes.
In order to offer health care in a safe and effective manner – especially during the COVID-19 outbreak – Urgent Care + TeleHealth offers a virtual care option to help patients get answers to their medical needs without having to leave their home.
The clinic’s virtual care system allows providers to conduct clinical assessments from a remote workstation and can also be used to support safe visitations from other medical professionals and specialists.
Dr. Ahwah has found telehealth to be particularly beneficial for families with small children and for seniors. According to Dr. Ahwah, “TeleHealth is a great alternative for parents who can’t take time off work or would have to arrange for childcare. TeleHealth is also popular for seniors or others with mobility issues.”
Benicia area employers can use Urgent Care + TeleHealth for employer health services that include workers’ compensation, injury care, pre- and ongoing employment screenings, physicals and regulatory exams. Basic wellness and prevention services include sports physicals, DOT physicals, routine physicals and immunizations to help Benicia residents maintain good health. The clinic accepts most workers compensation insurance plans.
The Benicia clinic has multiple exam rooms, a procedure room and an X-ray suite. The clinic is opening initially with limited hours, but will soon expand to be open every day including weekends and after-hours.
Urgent Care + TeleHealth accepts many insurance plans and offers affordable pricing for people without insurance. The center will be staffed by a full medical team that includes medical providers, radiologic technologists, nurses and customer service representatives.
