February 17, 2011 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SOUTHBURY — Urgent Care of Southbury sponsored “SurvivetheDrive” Monday January, 21st at Pomperaug High School. SurvivetheDrive is a Connecticut-based national driver safety program designed to educate drivers of all ages about how to avoid catastrophic, life-changing mistakes resulting from driver error. The event was coordinated for Urgent Care of Southbury by local resident Dr. Lisa M. Vieira.
The program at Pomperaug High School was hosted by nationally known presenter Bob Green, a driving enthusiast and motor sports race car driving instructor. Green says that teens are particularly vulnerable to driver error due to inexperience and immaturity. In his presentation to PHS students, Green educated young drivers and soon-to-be drivers about what he calls “Driving While Oblivious (DWO), which removes conscious understanding while operating heavy, moving equipment. Driver error occurs in 93% of all crashes due to DWO, which includes texting, reading, drinking, phoning and any activities that distract teens from conscious understanding while driving.”
Urgent Care of Southbury physician owner Bernd G. Woerner, M.D. said, “It is tragic to witness the injury or death of a teen due to driver error. Motor vehicle injuries continue to be the leading cause of death in teens. It is particularly satisfying to help educate teens in an attempt to change that statistic.”

"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."
