Feel Better,
Faster.

Students can send a virtual “thank you” to honor an educator who has made a difference in their life and have a chance to win a donation for their school district 
BROOKFIELD, CT, September 5, 2017
As summer winds down, parents, children, and teachers are preparing for a new school year – and all the emotions that go along with it. Excitement, anticipation and hope for a new start, with simultaneous feelings of nervousness, anxiety and unease about a new and unfamiliar experience. PhysicianOne Urgent Care is no stranger to helping turn feelings of unease and anxiety around for their patients. This September, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is honoring local educators and coaches who help students navigate these feelings every day, through a “Thank a Teacher” contest.
During the month of September, community members may submit their “thank you” to the educator who has made a difference in their lives, be it a teacher, coach or administrator. After submitting the digital “thank you,” the recognized educator will receive a personalized thank you email, and will also be entered to win a Dunkin’ Donuts® gift card. Each “thank you” also counts as one vote for the educator’s school district. The school district with the most nominations will receive a donation from PhysicianOne Urgent Care for the 2017-2018 school year.
“We are happy to support the educators in our communities who help their students tackle challenges and offer reassurance. Similarly, our experienced providers and clinical staff go beyond practicing high-quality medicine, as patients often walk into our centers feeling nervous and needing reassurance that we care and will help them feel better,” said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, PhysicianOne Urgent Care co-founder and Chief Medical Officer. “We are proud to be able to offer an exceptional experience that supports every patient beyond their broken bone or new and scary symptom.”

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"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!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"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."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"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."
