There are some exciting new changes in and around Immediate Care West: the opening of a new pharmacy, a new provider coming on board, and a new service to make receiving care easier!
First, the pharmacy. Refresh Pharmacy is a full service pharmacy that is now open in the main lobby of Medical Center West, about 20 steps away from our office. You can be seen at Immediate Care West and and get your prescription filled all in one place! Refresh Pharmacy participates with most insurances, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. With easy access and plenty of parking, you may want to use them for all your prescription medication needs, not just when you come to see us.
Next, the new provider. We are proud to introduce the newest member of our clinical team, Bethany Sly! Ms. Sly is a NCCPA Certified Physician Assistant with her Master's degree from Clarkson University. In addition to experience in family medicine, pediatric and urgent care settings, her background includes experience in sports medicine and wilderness medicine as a member of National Ski Patrol. Check out her Bio on the "Our Providers" page.
Last, the new service. In addition to being Board-Certified in Emergency Medicine, I am also Board-Certified in Primary Care Sports Medicine, and recently received certification in Nutritional Pain Management. I am happy to put these skills to use in our urgent care, but I am also able to offer them via telemedicine, with a "virtual practice" set up with American Well. The focus is on consultation regarding sports medicine, nutrition and wellness, but simple urgent care matters can be treated as well.
