Middletown, N.Y. – May 22, 2013 – Crystal Run Healthcare is now offering same-day primary care appointments in many office locations. Patients in Middletown, Goshen, Monroe, Warwick, Rock Hill and the surrounding areas can now see one of Crystal Run’s exceptional primary care providers the same day they call for an appointment. In addition, Crystal Run’s office in Warwick has walk-in patient hours available, so patients can see a primary care provider without having an appointment.
Your primary care physician plays a very important role in coordinating your overall health care. In addition to treating common ailments and illnesses, your primary care physician helps you manage chronic illness, coordinate complex care, and helps to encourage you to focus on personal wellness and preventive health strategies. This concept is known as the “patient-centered medical home” where health care providers and the care they provide are built and centered around the patient. Communications are based on trust and respect and there is shared decision-making between patients and their doctor.
“Crystal Run has always had a strong focus on primary care and now by offering same-day patient appointments we are making it easier and even more convenient for our patients with busy schedules to get and stay healthy. Our patients want access to personalized, coordinated and comprehensive primary care when they need it, when it's convenient for them, and that is what we aim to provide,” said Laura A. Nicoll, MD, Primary Care Division Leader at Crystal Run Healthcare.
