Importance of Primary Care
I’m sure you’ve noticed some big changes here at CMG and are wondering what this means going forward. While change is never easy we’re excited to welcome an emergency room to the Clarkston Medical Building and to refocus on our Primary Care practice. As the number of seriously ill patients visiting our urgent care continued to increase these last few years it also became clear that a hospital was not coming to Clarkston in the near future.
We decided to seek a creative solution that best served the needs of the community and those of our patients. By bringing in McLaren Oakland to operate an emergency room we have increased the level of skilled medical care that can be provided here on our campus and hopefully reduce the number of trips to area hospitals. This is also as an opportunity to expand our commitment to the Primary Care patients of CMG. We are now here for check ups, physicals, injuries or sudden illness Monday through Saturday including most weeknights until 8 pm. Just call ahead for an appointment so we can add you on to the schedule. We have a provider each day dedicated to only seeing “same day sick” patients and each of us leaves open slots in our schedule as well for add-ons throughout the day.
While it can be difficult to decide whether you should make an appointment with your primary care physician, go to an urgent care or even use the emergency room there are some simple tips to help you decide. The main difference between an Urgent Care and our Primary Care practice is that we need you to call ahead for an appointment, we do not administer IV fluids and we can not treat deep lacerations or major fractures. Minor cuts, breaks and sprains are no problem. If you’re not certain then give us a call. With our expanded hours and experienced team we can handle the majority of your needs right in our office. If your condition requires more advanced services we will coordinate your care with the appropriate facility. Again, give us a call if you’re uncertain. Our job is to take care of you!
