With the addition of our Urgent Care Center, Plessen has become an integrated healthcare system. We are now able to care for our patients all around when they have an injury or an acute issue, and then have a follow-up visit in our primary care or specialty care clinic, and provide them with surgery when they need it. This, as well as our Telehealth program, allows our patients to receive a full spectrum of care, all linked together with our healthcare information exchange technology,” shares Dr. Jan Tawakol, co-founder of Plessen Healthcare LLC.
The medical clinic in Orange Grove will continue to serve patient primary care and specialty healthcare needs, by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling 340.715.7720.
