ASHEBORO—FirstHealth of the Carolinas will open a new multi-specialty clinic located at 208 W. Salisbury Street in Asheboro on October 1, 2019. Services will include back and neck pain, cardiology, convenient care and occupational health & wellness.
“FirstHealth has been a trusted provider of high-quality health care services in Randolph county for a number of years,” says Dan Barnes, D.O., president of FirstHealth Physician Group. “We are pleased to increase access to specialties and services to further meet the needs of the community.”
The FirstHealth Back & Neck Pain and Cardiology offices located at 610 N. Fayetteville Street in Asheboro will relocate to the new Salisbury Street clinic location on October 1. Office phone numbers will remain the same, and services will continue to be provided by pain specialist Kondie Lykins, PA-C and cardiologist Scott Denardo, M.D.
New services opening in the clinic are convenient care and occupational health & wellness. FirstHealth Convenient Care will serve adults and children with non-emergency medical needs including such ailments as upper respiratory infection, strep, mild asthma, flu and urinary tract infection as well as minor injuries such as cuts, burns and broken bones that have not broken the skin.
Imaging services, immunizations and sports physicals are also among the various services offered, as well as flu shots.
“Our convenient care locations are available to provide easy access to services that fall between the needs of a true emergency, one that requires an emergency room visit, and the preventive care of a primary care provider,” Barnes added. “They offer a ‘one-stop option’ for care provided by a professional medical staff that specializes in unscheduled urgent care.”
FirstHealth certified physician assistants Kate McBride and Christine McBride will staff the Asheboro clinic.
Additional offerings at the Convenient Care clinic will include occupational health and wellness services such as DOT physicals, drug screenings, employment physicals and workers compensation treatment.
FirstHealth Convenient Care will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week to walk-in patients. Appointments are not necessary.
