With the advent of modern urgent cares the entire medical landscape has changed. FastMed Urgent Care is a leader in offering quality healthcare that is affordable, personal and available when you need it. All FastMed Urgent Care locations are staffed by licensed providers ready to support the healthcare needs of patients of all ages. In addition to walk-in ur- gent care, FastMed offers occupational health services, sports physicals, flu shots and much more. Open 365 days a year, FastMed has several Triangle locations from which to choose. There's sure to be one near you and your family the next time "urgent care with a com- passionate touch at a convenient hour" is needed! There is a primary care group located in the North Raleigh area that offers the unique concept in the practice of medicine of actually listening to the pa- tient. Schneider Medical Group, PA is a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice offering highly personal- ized and comprehensive acute and chronic medical care with a focus on internal medicine and integrative medicine. What does a DPC appointment mean to you? It represents things like extended appointment times allowing for comprehensive medical evaluations, making time to address every question. It may also include physician health coaching to help you learn more about nutrition and exercise. Physicians take the time to discuss all your test results and treatment op- tions with you. Best of all; physicians at Schneider get to the root of your medical problem even if it means spending extra time and effort. "As physicians we have the clinical expertise to very effectively treat disease. However, as health care pro- viders we have the opportunity, if not the obligation to help our patients heal. When we turn our patients into a collection of lab data and diagnostic studies, we run the risk of not seeing the forest for the trees--of not seeing the patient for the disease." — Schneider Medi- cal Group, PA, Raleigh, North Carolina. Wake Radiology (WR) combines the clinical expertise and advanced radiology technologies neces- sary to provide a full range of leading-edge imaging studies capable of detecting, diagnosing and determin- ing stage of disease for acute and chronic conditions. This includes MR whole body metastatic bone sur- veys, breast ultrasound elastography and 3D mam- mography as well as liver brachytherapy. WR also operates the area's only freestanding PET-CT facility. Wake Radiology was first in Wake County to intro- duce breast-specific gamma imaging, first to provide MRI-guided breast biopsy, first in the Triangle to be designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, and one of the first in the southeast to introduce 3D mammograms. Wake Radiology technologists have earned the high- est level of certification possible. All X-ray technolo- gists are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), which means they have gradu- ated from an accredited radiology program and have the technical expertise needed to provide high quality care. Their outpatient imaging offices are conveniently located throughout the Triangle and they offer early morning, evening and weekend appointments at many locations. As the region's largest radiology practice, Wake Radiology brings together the knowledge of nearly 50 radiologists performing 600,000 procedures each year. With 20 loca- tions, Wake Radiology has imaging offices conveniently located wherever you live in the Triangle. Reply Ob/Gyn and Fertility in Cary, North Caro- lina, is a new obstetrics/gynecology clinic that teaches fertility awareness and provides Cooperative-Restorative Healthcare. Their mission is to partner with patients at every stage of their lives to understand their individual bodies and optimize their overall health and well-being. At Reply, the doctors and staff tailor each woman's care to respond to her unique cycle patterns and reproductive goals by responding to a woman's fertility tracking. Fertil- ity awareness is increasingly popular among women seek- ing to understand their bodies, and can be used to help couples plan or avoid pregnancy. Fertility awareness also allows for an active partnership between a patient and her medical team, and can help the medical team identify and treat other underlying health problems. This commitment to a natural, education-focused approach is so strong that contraceptive drugs and devices, and assisted reproduc- tive technologies, is not be offered within the practice. At Reply Ob/Gyn they are passionate about helping women of all ages optimize their health and well-being. They provide patient education, ob/gyn services, fertility services, health coaching, and hold regular educational events for the community-at-large on the first Tues- days of each month. Realizing they chart new waters in healthcare, Reply prides itself in being a new kind of ob/ gyn clinic, and believes the care they provide as a unique response to each individual patient will eventually help her flourish through every stage of life. Whether you've moved to the Triangle to work, go to school or just enjoy all life has to offer it's comforting to know that awesome healthcare and the education and facilities that compliment it are nearby no matter where you live.
