Physicians Care Opens Walk-In Urgent Care Center in Dalton

Dalton, GA, (March 16, 2020) – Physicians Care, opened today at 1209 W. Walnut Ave., Suite 1, next to Pearle Vision.  The walk-in family and urgent care center will be open seven days a week.

“Many times, when people feel unwell or have an injury, they are unsure whether to go to the emergency room (ER) or wait to see their primary care doctor,” said Ellis Harris, Urgent Team Division Vice President. “Physicians Care centers fill this gap by providing quality walk-in healthcare outside of regular physician hours – and at a fraction of the time and cost of an ER visit.”

The center offers evening hours during the work week. For added convenience, walk-ins are welcome or online scheduling is available with Hold My Spot®.
