When 11-month-old Rylan Spence of Southbury tugged at his ear Saturday, January 5th, his mom Sharon Spence suspected a painful ear infection and brought him to Urgent Care of Connecticut. What Sharon and Rylan’s dad Tren Spence did not realize was little Rylan was Urgent Care of Connecticut’s 100,000th patient. That earned him a check for $500.00 towards his college fund for the company’s significant milestone. CEO and founding partner Dr. Robert Rohatsch (r) recently presented the check to Rylan and his parents. “Rylan represents a significant accomplishment. He represents 100,000 patients that did not need to experience the long wait of an emergency room or a several-day wait to see a primary care provider,” said Dr. Rohatsch. Next to Dr. Rohatsch is Rylan being held by mom, Sharon. Rylan’s big brother Sawyer, age 3, is in dad Tren’s arms.

The Southbury location opened its doors in July, 2008, followed by Brookfield in April, 2010, Norwalk in May 2011, Ridgefield in September, 2011 and Glastonbury in August, 2012.

What Our Patients Are Saying
"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."
"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"
"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
