SAME DAY SICK VISITS
We are able to accommodate our patients with same day sick appointments. We ask you to call as early as you can. Seeing your primary care provider who knows you best rather than going to an emergency room provides better medical care to you and is also cost effective.
We encourage preventative medicine, so please keep your follow-up visits and well visit appointments. Your provider will discuss with you strategies on how to live healthy.
As your primary care providers, we will manage your chronic illnesses such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Asthma, Depression, High Cholesterol, etc. We will coordinate your care with specialists when needed. Our providers have been awarded for the most improved Diabetic Patient Care from the Rhode Island Chronic Care Collaborative. We strive to have patients receive the highest level of care.
AUTO ACCIDENTS/WORK COMP
We are able to treat injuries sustained in accidents. We will communicate with your attorney and keep him/her updated with your medical reports. We also have a Physical Therapist on site to help with your rehabilitation. We will treat established patients who have been injured at work; however, certain information is required before we may treat you.
