Gardens Urgent Care was established in 2005 by Dr. Matthew Thomas with the goal of providing high-quality acute medical care to those who need it in a friendly, caring atmosphere with excellent customer service, fair pricing and convenience.
Clean, comfortable surroundings and warm, friendly people offer an inviting alternative to an emergency room setting. Polite and courteous staff at the front desk greets each patient and addresses his or her needs in a prompt, efficient manner. The patient’s particular issue will be addressed with empathy and attention to detail, with respect to the patient’s privacy, and ensure that the patient understands his or her unique illness or injury, including education on home care and management. Our medical team is led by:
