[Excerpt from Metro Atlanta CEO]
“Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet, one of Georgia’s largest urgent care networks, is now a contracted network provider with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health plans. Veterans enrolled in the VA health care system can visit a participating civilian urgent care provider and receive non-emergency care without pre-authorization.
In appreciation of our veterans and active military, we proudly offer them “priority access” for urgent care visits. “Priority access” means you skip the wait and the line when you visit any of our Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet locations.” Just be sure to bring your U.S. Uniformed Services ID card or VA documentation (DD-214) to verify you are a member of the Uniformed Services at the time of your visit.
“We are committed to efficient and high-quality care for all patients but would like to show our gratitude with a special ‘Thank You’ to those who have served or actively serving our country,” said Lee Resnick, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet.
Veterans now have an alternative to busy emergency rooms and after-hours care when their doctor’s office is closed. They also will have extended access with online registration and walk-in care 365 days a year. WellStreet providers and staff are committed to ensuring you and your family are well cared for during life’s unexpected illness and injuries.”
