Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, DO – Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder

PhysicianOne Urgent Care was established in 2008 in Southbury, CT by three local physicians: Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Dr. Bernd Woerner, and Dr. Robert Rohatsch.

In the years that have followed, PhysicianOne Urgent Care has set the gold standard for acute care of non life-threatening medical conditions. We’re proud to be the first physician-founded urgent care center in Connecticut to be certified and accredited by the Urgent Care Association. We have also been included on the list of Top Workplaces —honors of special significance, because the list measures employee satisfaction.

We take great pride in helping make the lives of local families a bit easier. PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s high-quality medical care is a cost-effective alternative to the Emergency Room as well as a convenient alternative to primary care physicians during off or peak hours.

Our centers provide walk-in treatment for a wide array of non-life threatening illnesses and injuries. On-site services include X-ray, lab, wound stitching, physicals, IV, and additional services.

We currently have 23 centers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. All of our centers are open 365 days a year, 8:00 am – 8:00 pm Monday through Friday; 9:00 am – 5:00 pm on weekends and holidays; and 8:00 am – 3:00 pm on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Experienced providers, X-ray technologists, and medical assistants are on staff at all times, and are ready to treat patients of all ages from infants to seniors. Most insurances are accepted, and affordable self-pay options are offered.
