JOHN MUIR HEALTH ADDS URGENT CARE AND EXPANDS PEDIATRIC CARE IN ORINDA
Walnut Creek, Calif. (August 31, 2017) – John Muir Health announced today that it has opened an Urgent Care Center in Orinda at 140 Brookwood Road, Suite 200, and recently expanded pediatric care at 3 Altarinda Road, Suite 300. John Muir Health also offers internal medicine and imaging services, including X-ray, ultrasound and 3D tomosynthesis mammography, in Orinda.
Located in a newly renovated space, the Orinda Urgent Care Center offers primary care services for many urgent, non-life threatening medical symptoms, seven days a week, including holidays. This includes treatment for needs that are acute but not life-threatening, such as fevers, coughs, rashes, minor cuts, abdominal pain, strains and sprains.
“Patients who come to a John Muir Health doctor at the 140 Brookwood location have primary and urgent care services in one office, with imaging and lab services at the same location,” said Dr. Mary Sears, a John Muir Health internal medicine physician in Orinda. “The range of services in one location is more convenient for our patients and allows them to stay in the community for their care.”
At the new Orinda Urgent Care Center, appointments may be made online at johnmuirhealth.com, or by calling 925-254-9800. Walk-in patients are welcome but they may experience extended wait times depending on the number of patients that day. John Muir Health accepts most major health insurance plans, including HMO, PPO and Medicare.
Urgent Care hours of operation:
Monday through Friday: 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Weekends: 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Holidays: 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
“Our Orinda Urgent Care Center continues John Muir Health’s commitment to providing high-quality care and an exceptional patient experience by expanding into the growing Lamorinda community,” said Deborah Greer, M.D., Medical Director of Urgent Care Services for John Muir Health. "Injuries and illnesses don’t always happen during business hours. Our patients can get the same-day care they need at six John Muir Health Urgent Care Centers in the East Bay, including in Brentwood, Concord, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Walnut Creek and now, Orinda."
John Muir Health’s pediatric services in Orinda recently relocated to a newly renovated and expanded space at 3 Altarinda Road, Suite 300. The four-pediatrician practice offers convenient online scheduling for patients at johnmuirhealth.com.
"We enjoy seeing established and new families in the office,” said Dr. Robin Meezan, a John Muir Health pediatrician in Orinda. “All of our pediatricians have open practices and we look forward to being your health care partner."
