Welcome to MetroIPC Immediate Care!
Today, Immediate Care is rapidly developing as a key method of medical care delivery. Although Immediate Care services have been offered in some areas for 40 years, the concept has grown in the last decade, emerging as the “go-to” type of care for patients needing prompt medical services. Immediate and Urgent Care offices have been expanding throughout the country and are now appearing in the DC area through our Metro Immediate & Primary Care offices and its four current locations.
I have been in the Immediate Care field almost entirely since completing my residency in Emergency Medicine. After focusing on direct patient care in Immediate Care offices for some 20 years, I spent almost a decade as CEO and President of a large group of Immediate Care offices. I know first-hand how this concept is capable of helping transform the delivery of medical care. My hope and goal is to use my experience to help our entire MetroIPC staff bring patients the convenience they need and the outstanding care they deserve. Immediate Care means being ready to serve patients where, and when, they need care.
The essential idea behind quality Immediate Care is centered upon convenience, the convenience for prompt, efficient patient care, as it is needed. MetroIPC’s Immediate Care services deliver this convenience through: (1) local, neighborhood offices (2) extended, evening and weekend hours (3) expanded services including, but not limited to: in-house lab tests, x-ray, ECG, breathing treatments as well as immunizations and (4) welcoming walk-in patients and on-line Immediate Care appointments.
At MetroIPC, we also have the unique capability of providing on-going primary care services. Our Primary Care team can provide that long-term medical care that is an ideal compliment to our Immediate Care practice. Having both capabilities will allow patients to get the medical services they need, and any follow up care that is necessary, quickly and seamlessly.
Our vision is to maintain that focus on patient convenience and accessibility while delivering outstanding care in a friendly and pleasant atmosphere. Many people are familiar with Immediate Care operations and capabilities, but if you are not, feel free to explore our website or stop by any one of our offices and see what we have to offer today’s busy patient.
