Your Fall Medical Needs

By Dr. Armando Samaniego, founder, STAT MED Urgent Care

This is a busy time of year for the many individuals and families we serve that are juggling back to school, work, and family. As a physician and father of three young adults, I often hear from friends and neighbors about the challenges of scheduling school or team physicals, immunizations, and necessary laboratory tests. It is a welcome surprise for them to learn STAT MED Urgent Care is a quality option for those more routine needs, alongside more serious immediate medical issues.  

While our dedicated physicians have years of experience in busy emergency rooms treating unexpected illness and injury, STAT MED is an outstanding option for any of the routine care you seek, either when your primary physician is not available or if you don’t have one. 

As the health care landscape continues to change, determining where to seek immediate medical care when you need and want it can be confusing. Primary care practices are increasingly stretched, and ‘minute clinics’ are very limited in their clinical capabilities. We know from experience that 60-80% of visits to an ER can be handled at an advanced urgent care like STAT MED. 

With all these changes taking place, STAT MED’s goal is to consistently provide fast access to top quality medical care while ensuring an outstanding patient experience. STAT MED has opened a brand new location in Pleasant Hill/Concord by Sunvalley Mall, with on-site x-rays and labs to expedite diagnosis and care, as well as private treatment rooms for dedicated time with your physician. 

As you prepare for fall, STAT MED Urgent Care is here for you, whether you want a flu shot or a physical or experience an illness or injury.
