Physicians Urgent Care, a group of walk-in clinics with care directed by
emergency room physicians, has opened a new location in the Berry Farms Town Center, 5021 Hughes Crossing, Suite 165 in Franklin.
The walk-in clinic is the third Physicians Urgent Care facility in the Brentwood-Franklin area and is the latest amenity in Berry Farms, a 600-acre mixed-use master planned community that eventually will occupy three of the four corners of Peytonsville Road/Goose Creek Bypass and I-65 in south Franklin with residences, offices, a supermarket and other retail stores.
Physicians Urgent Care treats patients with non-life- threatening emergencies. Locally owned by Board-Certified Emergency Room physicians, the clinics can treat a majority of cases normally seen in a hospital emergency room, without the high cost or long wait times.
“Berry Farms is a new, up-and- coming community with lots of families, the perfect match for our clinics,” said Dr. Ty Babcock from Physicians Urgent Care. “Patients will love our convenient hours and our unique pediatric rooms designed especially for kids.”
The clinic is open 8 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Physicians Urgent Care clinics are designed to look more like living rooms than doctor’s offices, with free snacks and soft drinks. Colorful pediatrics rooms feature toys, games, televisions and low seating to make children feel more at home.
“Care in our clinics is either directly provided by or coordinated through specially trained ER physicians, who bring an added level of expertise to our patients,” Babcock said. “At the same time, the average length of a visit is about 40 minutes, and our costs are a fraction of what you’d see in a hospital ER.”
Physicians Urgent Care clinics have on-site X-ray capabilities, labs and procedure rooms. The clinics can treat a variety of illnesses from colds, allergies and infections to bronchitis and pneumonia. They can also handle minor trauma; burns and cuts; insect bites; fractures, sprains and dislocations; and work-related injuries. Physical exams, including sports physicals, are also offered.
“No appointment is necessary, you can walk in at any time,” Babcock said. “Or you can call us and always speak to a real person who can answer your questions.”
In addition to Berry Farms, Physicians Urgent Care has two other locations — 155 Covey Drive, Suite 100 in Franklin; and 700 Old Hickory Blvd, Suite 207 in south Nashville near Brentwood. A fourth location in Nashville West is set to open later this year. Most private insurance is accepted. For more information, visit www.PhysiciansUrgentCare.com.
