Express Care Urgent Care walk in medical care 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 the 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 illness 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 any one with non-life threatening injuries or non-medical conditions 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. Physicians often refer to us for certain procedures that they are unable to provide i.e.; hydration therapies or wound care. Conversely we may refer you to a specialist if you need further care that we cannot provide.
