  • Site open for one day. Possibly extended pending availability of test kits.
  • Individuals do not need to be patients of PhysicianOne to qualify for testing.
  • Patients must be pre-screened in advance via a Virtual Visit.

MEDFORD, March 30, 2020 – Medford Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn and PhysicianOne Urgent Care announced today that a drive-through COVID-19 testing site will be set up at PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s Medford location, 4110 Mystic Valley Parkway, on Saturday, April 4, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Licensed PhysicianOne Urgent Care health care providers will test patients who have been pre-screened via a Virtual Visit. No tests will be offered without advanced pre-screening. Patients do not need to be current patients of  PhysicianOne Urgent Care  but must be pre-screened by PhysicianOne Urgent Care staff in advance by going to www.P1UC.com and following the prompts for the Medford drive-through testing pre-screen, or by calling 855-349-2828 .

“I’m so thankful to PhysicianOne for providing this important resource not only to Medford residents, but to residents from our neighboring communities who may not otherwise have access to testing,” said Mayor Lungo-Koehn. “Access to testing is critical in understanding and slowing the spread of COVID-19. I also want to thank Representatives Garballey, Barber, and Donato, and Senator Jehlen, who continue to work on our behalf to secure additional testing for our community.”

“PhysicianOne Urgent Care provides convenient access to high-quality, cost effective care. We pride ourselves in partnering with local municipalities to focus on improving health outcomes for residents,” said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, DO, PhysicianOne Urgent Care Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer. “We recognize the need for increased access to testing resources right now. We are proud to partner with Mayor Lungo-Koehn and the City of Medford to provide this service to local communities.”

Due to limited availability of test kits, the Medford drive-through site will initially be open for the day on Saturday, April 4. Mayor Lungo-Koehn and local representatives are working to secure additional kits. If and when testing kits become available, the drive-through site at PhysicianOne will be reactivated.

"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."
