“My interest in joining the ConvenientMD team stemmed from a willingness to pursue a career path in urgent care. ConvenientMD offers affordable healthcare to all – something I’m proud to align my practices with. ConvenientMD allows for individuals to easily access healthcare in a system that is overwhelmed with patients and not enough providers. We strive to work with community providers and hospitals to provide the best, collaborative care for the patients. I chose ConvenientMD because of the patient centered approach to urgent care. That’s extremely important to me.”
