San Marcos, CA (September, 2022) — North San Diego County residents now have greater access to same-day health care services with the opening of a new TrueCare West San Marcos QuickCare on Grand Avenue. Prompt quality medical care is vital, especially with flu season approaching, and TrueCare is ready to serve the community with expanded access to non-emergency health care services that require immediate attention.
Without the stressful “urgent care” experience, TrueCare QuickCare patients can receive a wide range of medical services by making a quick appointment just prior to heading in to see a provider.
“We want the families and individuals that we serve to have easy options for getting the care they need,” said Michelle D. Gonzalez, CEO and President of TrueCare. “Our patients deserve access to high-quality compassionate care. With the addition of our new QuickCare location in West San Marcos, we are making it even more convenient. We are focused on meeting the community where they are, ensuring health care is accessible to everyone.”
To expedite medical attention, nine examination rooms are available at the new TrueCare West San Marcos QuickCare for addressing non-urgent illnesses such as:
- Flu, coughs, colds
- Respiratory conditions such as allergies, sinus infections, and bronchitis
- Skin disorders such as rashes, lesions, warts, infections
- Eye/ear/nose and throat ailments
- Minor injuries such as sprains, fractures and burns
- COVID testing
To support the ongoing and future development of TrueCare’s QuickCare services, the organization has elevated Dr. Devarshi Nath to QuickCare Clinical Director. Over the past 11 years, Dr. Nath’s leadership has been instrumental in establishing two QuickCare sites – one in Oceanside on Crouch Street and one in San Marcos on Valpreda Road – and now this new location in west San Marcos. In his expanded role, Dr. Nath will help drive TrueCare’s growing response to meeting community needs for QuickCare services in addition to patient care.
“Our goal is to build a healthy community where everyone is cared for and has the opportunity to participate,” added Dr. Nath. “Our providers endeavor to offer inclusive, equitable and culturally sensitive care that helps patients reach their intended wellness goals. Ultimately, this increased access yields greater health benefits for families and the community as a whole.”
