What happens when a teddy bear gets a boo-boo?
Children will learn how minor ailments are treated during eMedical Offices urgent care center’s Teddy Bear Clinic during the Berkeley Heights Street Fair on Sunday, June 30 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
At the office, located at 369 Springfield Avenue, 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 will also include free popcorn and additional giveaways for all ages. Staff will be available to answer questions.
The office will be fully staffed to treat patients throughout the day.
The center provides complete urgent care, lab services, X-rays and more, delivered by board-certified emergency physicians, family physicians, internists and pediatricians working with highly trained nurses, 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 Offices, 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 six 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.
To keep patients informed outside of the office, eMedical Offices publishes a monthly blog at blog.emedicaloffices.com and shares health tips on its Facebook and Twitter pages. The office recently partnered with mobile app iTriage, a resource for finding medical facilities and health information via mobile devices.
