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.

eMedical Offices is located at 369 Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights; (908) 464-6700, Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call (908) 464-6700 or visit www.emedicaloffices.com.
