Entertainment will be provided by members of Youth Orchestras of Essex County; free blood pressure screenings will be available; and giveaways including a three-month membership to Retro Fitness gym, a Whole Foods Gift Card, and gift baskets, will be raffled off.

The facility will be open for business beginning March 17 at 8:00 a.m. The office will be open from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., Monday-Friday and 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. A Doctors Express office also launched in South Plainfield two months ago.

Doctors Express Urgent Care isa medical facility designed to treat episodic illnesses and injuries. It features a full body x-ray machine, on-site labs, and prescription medicine dispensation. No appointment is necessary and walk-ins are welcome. According to the staff, wait time is minimal compared to an emergency room visit that could cost a copay of hundreds of dollars. The cost for a visit to Doctors Express equates to a specialist copay on an individual's insurance plan.

For community members that cannot get an appointment with their regular physician, or do not have a regular physician, Doctors Express offers an inexpensive solution. Any x-rays or lab work, as well as the exam, are included in the copay that an individual will pay.

Doctors Express has over 70 centers nationwide including the new locations in South Plainfield and West Orange.
