Urgent Care for Minor Illnesses HealthTalks Transcript
David Saxon, MD, Urgent Care
For over 20 years, Dr. William Conyer and I have had the honor and privilege of serving our community in both primary care and urgent care medicine. In 2013, due to the increased need for urgent care, our clinic was relocated to the main campus here at Baptist Health Paducah. And, we’re trying to give our main patients an alternative to the emergency room and provide them with faster care. I am pleased to announce that we are now changing to a dedicated urgent care medicine clinic. At the same time, Baptist Health Family Medicine clinic has been opened in Paducah to help meet the continued need for primary care within our community. We are working diligently at our clinic to help our patients find new primary care providers. In the meantime, we will continue to provide care to our primary patients until a new provider has been found.
Heather Leath, APRN, Urgent Care
At Baptist Health Urgent Care, we say patients on a walk-in basis. This allows for us to treat patients as they come so they can be seen in a timely manner so they do not have to have long wait times at their doctor’s offices.
I think the care that we provide is excellent. Most patients I hope see our caring and our heart for people and for medicine come through in what we do every day.
