The doctor is in 24/7: The benefits of local, hybrid health care

When you think about businesses that provide 24/7 service, what comes to mind? Most people would say something like fast-food chains or gas stations. Wouldn’t it be great to get a question answered in the middle of the night and then be seen by a local provider the next day if you need it? 

Booking an appointment with your primary care physician or making an emergency room visit for common non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries can be time-consuming, expensive and downright hard to schedule if symptoms arise in the middle of the night or you’re away from home. But if you’re not feeling well or hurt, the last thing you probably want to do is venture out and put your health, as well as the health of other people, at risk.  

Luckily, the adoption of telemedicine has exploded since the beginning of the pandemic, allowing patients to meet with a local physician through a secure video-conferencing platform on a mobile device or desktop computer. Access to this type of health care allows physicians to assist all patients, day or night from anywhere in the world with things such as: 

  • Cold and flu symptoms  
  • Cough 
  • Minor burns and cuts 
  • Ear and eye infections 
  • Respiratory infections 
  • Sore throats 
  • And more! 

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we have taken this a step further, offering our patients access to reliable healthcare 24/7, with the option to follow up with a provider in person as needed, allowing patients to schedule an appointment from locations that work best for them such as: 

  • Home 
  • The office 
  • Car 
  • On vacation 

Telehealth and in-person care do not need to be either-or. Offering local, hybrid health care in areas where it is not easily accessible is the next level of on-demand health care and is central to supporting the health and wellness of all patients. 

Whatever your needs may be, our team at PhysicianOne Urgent care has your back, day or night, in-person or virtual. We specialize in helping you get the care you need when you need it most through an experience that is quicker and more cost-effective than the traditional emergency room. You aren’t just any patient – you’re our patient.

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

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!"

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."

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."
