Our new Urgent Care service
DCES' Urgent Care service provides a walk-in option for routine services and stable emergencies providing compassionate and convenient care to our clients. Our usage of an online check in process allows for a smoother triage process and acuity-level expectations of incoming patients.
In addition to having a dedicated Urgent Care Technician during each shift, our Urgent Care Doctors are supported by DCES’s exceptionally trained and amazing group of technicians, assistants, doctors, and management team. We are committed to continuous learning and growth, ensuring all team members have the skills and tools to perform at their best. You will always have the support of an ER doctor to manage cases if they turn out to be not so stable!
Our Urgent Care doctors can enjoy a predictable schedule of four 10-hour shifts per week, to include 2 weekend shifts per month. The proposed schedule would be a rotation of Wed – Sat and Tues – Fri during peak hours of 10A – 8P but can be adjusted within reason.
