DriveThru Urgent Care is now seeing patients at its Atlanta location on Howell Mill Road. The practice treats patients with time-sensitive medical needs in the comfort of their own cars. With the first of its many planned locations now in operation, DriveThru Urgent Care is transforming the urgent care experience by delivering modern, convenient, and accessible urgent care medicine in a drive-through setting.
Created by the veteran ER team behind Viral Solutions, which tested and vaccinated millions during the COVID-19 crisis, DriveThru Urgent Care brings radical efficiency to every aspect of quality urgent care. This improved level of access makes healthcare easy, breaking down barriers and meeting patients where they are so they can receive the timely treatment they need without delay and get better faster.
"We truly believe the opening of DriveThru Urgent Care is ushering in a new era of healthcare," says DriveThru Urgent Care co-founder, Dr. Ben Lefkove. "After serving nearly 4 million patients, we're able to take what we've learned and bring it to the urgent care space with game-changing results."
DriveThru Urgent Care retools the entire process, from check-in to discharge to prescription fulfillment. The practice treats all non-life-threatening conditions patients typically seek at urgent care locations, from abdominal pain and eye infections to sprains and minor cuts and lacerations. DriveThru Urgent Care puts a special emphasis on treating and testing for seasonal respiratory illnesses, including flu, COVID-19, RSV, and strep throat.
Providers have the ability to utilize state-of-the-art medical equipment while the patient remains in the vehicle. For more extensive examination and when handling sensitive medical issues, providers can treat patients inside the facility, which features multiple exam rooms and an X-ray machine.
After diagnosis, patients can get the most common medications on site without a separate trip to the pharmacy.
"By streamlining the urgent care process, we're giving the patient the gift of time," says co-founder, physician assistant Ron Sanders. "They can improve swiftly and get back to making the most out of their lives."
