What happens when a teddy bear gets a boo-boo?

Children will learn how minor ailments are treated during eMedical Urgent Care’s Teddy Bear Clinic during the Berkeley Heights Block Party on Sunday, June 9, 2019.

From 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the office at 369 Springfield Ave., children under 8 will receive a FREE plush teddy bear, and staff will provide each bear with a mini “exam” to help alleviate children’s fears about visiting the doctor. The event also will include additional giveaways for all ages. Staff will be available to answer questions.

The office will be fully staffed to treat patients throughout the day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The center provides complete urgent care, lab services, X-rays and more, delivered by board-certified emergency and family medicine physicians working with highly trained radiology techs and medical assistants. Its state-of-the-art electronic medical record system means a patient’s treatment information can easily be sent to his or her primary doctor for follow-up care.

Physicians diagnose and treat a variety of urgent conditions, including colds, coughs and sore throats; ear infections; nausea and vomiting; allergies and rashes; urinary tract infections; sprains and strains; cuts and fractures. And, when patients require additional care, physicians can provide referrals to specialists, such as primary care physicians, orthopedists, allergists and ophthalmologists.

eMedical Urgent Care, which operates a sister location in Middletown, is open seven days a week, including evenings, weekends and holidays. Patients are seen on a walk-in basis without appointment, and with plenty of exam rooms, there’s rarely a wait. The center accepts most major insurance plans and offers an eCard Program – an affordable option for the uninsured.

eMedical Urgent Care is located at 369 Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. For more information, call (908) 464-6700 or visit www.emedicalurgentcare.com.
