Franklin, Tenn. — Physicians Urgent Care, a group of walk-in clinics with care directed by emergency room physicians, has opened a new location in the Berry Farms Town Center, 5021 Hughes Crossing, Suite 165 in Franklin.
Physicians Urgent Care brings a unique combination of quality, efficiency, comfort and accessibility to patients with non-life-threatening emergencies. Locally owned by Board-Certified ER physicians, the clinics can treat a majority of cases normally seen in a hospital emergency room, without the high cost or long wait times.
“Berry Farms is a new, up-and-coming community with lots of families, the perfect match for our clinics,” said Dr. Ty Babcock from Physicians Urgent Care. “Patients will love our convenient hours and our unique pediatric rooms designed especially for kids.”
The clinic is open 8am-6pm weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Physicians Urgent Care clinics look more like living rooms than doctor’s offices, with free snacks and soft drinks. Colorful pediatrics rooms feature toys, games, televisions and low seating to make children feel more at home.
“Care in our clinics is either directly provided by or coordinated through specially trained ER physicians, who bring an added level of expertise to our patients,” said Dr. Babcock. “At the same time, the average length of a visit is about 40 minutes, and our costs are a fraction of what you’d see in a hospital ER.”
Physicians Urgent Care clinics can treat a variety of illnesses from colds, allergies and infections to bronchitis and pneumonia. They can also handle minor trauma; burns and cuts; insect bites; fractures, sprains and dislocations; and work-related injuries. Physical exams, including sports physicals, are also offered.
On-site X-ray capabilities, labs and procedure rooms allow Physicians Urgent Care to treat many conditions that most doctors’ offices and other clinics cannot.
“Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to get the care you need,” said Dr. Babcock. “No appointment is necessary, you can walk in at any time. Or you can call us and always speak to a real person who can answer your questions.”
In addition to Berry Farms, Physicians Urgent Care has two other locations — 155 Covey Drive, Suite 100 in Franklin; and 700 Old Hickory Blvd, Suite 207 in Brentwood. A fourth location in Nashville West is set to open later this year. Most private insurance is accepted. For more information, visit www.PhysiciansUrgentCare.com.
