On Friday, November 1, 2013, Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) opened Genesee Urgent Care, previously known as Independent Physicians Urgent Care, PLLC, located at 1904 Genesee Street in Utica, New York. FSLH acquired Independent Physicians from the three principal physician owners, Domenic Aiello, MD; Venkata Mannava, MD; and Anthony DeIorio, MD. FSLH also owns and operates an Urgent Care Center at their Faxton Campus, 1676 Sunset Avenue in Utica. The Faxton and Genesee Urgent Care Centers each have nearly 20,000 patient visits annually.
“My thanks to the staff of Independent Physicians for their assistance in making this transition a smooth and successful one,” said Bradley Crysler, executive director of Adirondack Community Physicians for FSLH. “Urgent Care Centers provide a needed service for less threatening injuries and illnesses, leaving the emergency departments available for the more serious and life-threatening issues.”
Both urgent care locations are open daily from 8am to 8pm and accept most major insurances. More and more people are being referred to Urgent Care Centers if they suffer from minor medical problems like seasonal allergies, coughs/colds, flu, pink eye, sprains, minor burns and lacerations, urinary tract infections, minor back pain, rashes and nausea. Patients with multiple medical problems and/or severe chronic conditions should be seen in an Emergency Department.
Faxton Urgent Care can be reached at 315.624.5226 and the Genesee Urgent Care can be reached at 315.793.8856.
