Express Care Urgent Care walk-in center in Hamden, CT is privately owned and operated. Dr. Chaudhry opened this Urgent Care in response to a need to better serve the residents and businesses in Hamden. Working at a local hospital, Dr. Chaudhry has witnessed first-hand the number of people seeking treatment in the emergency room when their own doctors were closed or overbooked. Long wait times, high costs, and preventing others with life-threatening illnesses or injuries from being seen in a more timely fashion are the result. Only 20% of the people going to an “ER” need to be there. The other 80% may be treated cheaper, faster, and better in an Urgent Care Center!
We treat anyone with non-life-threatening injuries from 9 months old to 109 years old. If you have a regular physician, we do not replace them, but rather fill the gap for when they may not be available. However, a complete list of what we treat may be found on our website, or you can call the office and ask our friendly receptionists.
Who will treat me? Express Care Urgent Care currently has two board-certified physicians, several highly trained physician assistants, and medical assistants. Our goal is total patient satisfaction. So, our staff will do everything possible to treat and care for you in a professional, kind, and compassionate manner. Time will be spent to properly diagnose, treat and discuss your medical situation. In addition, we will follow up with you a few days after your visit to see how things are going.
No! In fact, we will help you to save your money. Our fees are similar to that of a regular primary care physician and often cheaper. In comparison to an ER visit, we can be up to three times cheaper. Our deductibles are also lower. We accept most insurance plans including Husky. Our ‘self-pay’ rates for people without insurance are very affordable as well. Credit cards are accepted.
Absolutely not! In fact, we work closely with your primary care physician in regards to any treatment or recommendations we may make (if you ask us to share this information with them.) Many primary care doctors refer to us after their offices have closed.
We work with many local employers and treat workman’s comp injuries and medical conditions. Your employer needs to pre-authorize your visit. We also do DOT physicals, as well as non-DOT drug testing and physicals.
