Livermore Gains Easy Access to Affordable Walk-In Medical Care 7 Days a Week

Livermore, Calif., December 28, 2017 -- STAT MED Urgent Care today opens a new Livermore urgent care clinic, where physicians specializing in emergency medicine care for walk-in patients of all ages. This state-of-the-art facility is located at 4465 First St., off the 580, in the shopping center at the corner of Las Positas Rd, near Safeway and Lowes.  It has 5 private treatment rooms, offers x-ray and on-site labs, and is open 7 days a week, including evenings and holidays.

“We are proud to expand Livermore’s easy access to quality medical care by offering a convenient and cost-effective alternative to hospital emergency room visits,” says Dr. Armando Samaniego, STAT MED Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder.

Industry data shows upwards of 60-70% of emergency room patients have non-life threatening medical needs that can be successfully (and cost-effectively) addressed by an experienced doctor outside of the ER. 

Enter STAT MED, whose ER-trained doctors provide quality medical care that saves patients time, money and stress compared to a typical hospital emergency room visit, while simultaneously freeing up valuable hospital emergency room resources for patients facing truly life-threatening situations.

ER vs. STAT MED Urgent Care: Where’s the line?

“If its truly life-threatening because someone is having a heart attack, bleeding profusely, diaphoretic (sweating heavily), or experiencing dizziness, then call an ambulance,” advises Dr. Samaniego, who spent 3 decades working in hospital emergency rooms before opening STAT MED’s first clinic in 2013 -- in Lafayette, where he lives. “But if you are actually thinking about getting in your car, then consider going to STAT MED.”
