Physicians Care Expands With Walk-In Clinic Opening On McCallie Avenue

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Chattanooga-based Physicians Care officially opened a new walk-in clinic at 1313 McCallie Ave., on Tuesday, with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re very pleased to see this locally owned business expand to the downtown area,” said J.Ed. Marston, the Chattanooga Chamber’s vice president of marketing and communications. “This facility will be very convenient for those working downtown and in the surrounding neighborhoods.” 

The new facility offers walk-in treatment for non-life threatening medical needs, family medicine, X-rays and even ongoing treatment of chronic conditions, such as asthma and diabetes.

“The McCallie area offers a lot of opportunities for Physicians Care to expand,” said Dr. Bill Meadows, the organization’s owner and president. “Our extended hours and ability to see new patients the same day fills a gap for this area of town, especially for students and those who don’t have a current relationship with a primary care doctor.”

Business services are also offered such as pre-employment evaluations and drug screenings. Workers Compensation solutions are available to area businesses that need extended hours for their employees to seek medical care. 

The facility is open Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. No appointment is needed.
