Atlanta –With the addition of three Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet locations, patients in Stockbridge, Snellville and Loganville now have increased access to healthcare services for non-life threatening illnesses or injuries that require immediate care close to home.
The Stockbridge facility is located on 913 Eagles Landing Parkway, Suite 150. The Snellville facility is located 2118 Scenic Highway, Suite H, and the Loganville facility is located on 4763 Atlanta Highway, Suite 420. All three locations provide walk-in treatment seven days a week and provide an alternative to busy emergency rooms and after hours care for primary care offices.
“We treat patients who require immediate care when their primary care physician or specialist is unavailable,” said Lee Resnick, M.D., chief medical officer of Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet. “We treat anything from sprained ankles and fractures to sore throats, eye and ear infections, cuts and falls. For those experiencing life-threatening illnesses and injuries, they should dial 911 or immediately seek treatment at the nearest emergency room.”
Operated by WellStreet, a national urgent and family healthcare provider that began serving Atlanta communities in 2012, Piedmont Urgent Care now has 14 locations throughout metro Atlanta in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, North Druid Hills, Milton/Alpharetta, Austell,Stockbridge, McDonough, and Virginia Highlands.
“People often go to the emergency room for treatment of non-emergent issues not realizing there are faster and less expensive options like Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet available,” Gregory Hurst, chief operating officer of Piedmont Healthcare, said. “Our goal is to make it easier for patients to take charge of their health by offering quick and convenient access to care.”
The emergency room is still the place to go for patients experiencing any signs of a heart attack or stroke. Severe stomach pain that is accompanied by other symptoms such as coughing up or vomiting blood, dizziness or fainting and vision changes should all be treated immediately in the emergency room as well.
