Patient First opening in Voorhees January 5

Patient First announces the expansion of its urgent care services in New Jersey with the opening of a new medical center in Voorhees on Thursday, January 5. This location joins other Patient First centers in the Greater Philadelphia area, including those in Montgomeryville, East Norriton, Pottstown, Springfield, Feasterville, Abington and Devon, PA and Woodbury, Sicklerville, Hamilton, Delran and Cherry Hill, NJ.

Located at 705 Haddonfield-Berlin Road, the new medical center will serve residents of Voorhees and surrounding neighborhoods.

“The goal of Patient First is to provide convenient, cost-effective medical care on a walk-in basis,” says R.P. Sowers, M.D., founder and CEO of Patient First. “At the same time, our physicians and staff always work closely and collaboratively with the area’s existing medical community to provide care.”

Open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., 365 days a year, Patient First physicians and their support staff are available for urgent care; work, school, camp, sports and travel physicals; occupational health; flu shots and primary care for patients who do not have a primary care physician.

For continuity of care, Patient First routinely transmits a copy of the visit record to the patient’s primary care physician according to the patient’s wishes.

The new Patient First centers will offer medical care including:

Urgent Care
Patient First provides treatment for routine injuries and illnesses – offering a convenient, lower-cost alternative to visiting a hospital emergency department. Services offered include care for colds, flu, allergic reactions, ear and sinus infections, pneumonia, minor burns, skin rashes, sprains, minor fractures, lacerations and sports injuries.

Digital X-Ray Services
Like all Patient First centers, the new Patient First – Sicklerville and Hamilton locations will be equipped with on-site digital x-ray equipment for routine x-rays.

Lab Work
The new Patient First facilities’ CLIA-approved laboratories will provide on-site services for routine office labs and send-out service for more complex tests.

Prescriptions
As a convenience, Patient First dispenses routine prescription drugs on-site.

Occupational Health
Since 1981, Patient First has provided Occupational Health services for employees and employers. These services include treatment for workplace injuries covered by Workers’
Compensation, as well as DOT physicals, drug screenings and work-site flu shots.

Patient First accepts most major insurance plans. A complete listing of participating insurers can be found on our Insurance Participation page.

About Patient First

It opened its first facility in Richmond, Virginia, in 1981 and developed many automation-based operating systems and practices that were considered innovative at the time and which have been continually improved to meet the needs of today’s patients. Patient First is accredited by the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine.
