Press Release

WellNow Urgent Care, one of the country’s leading urgent care providers, announced it will open the doors to its newest center in Lewiston on Wednesday, July 10.

Located at 860 Center St., the new facility offers treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, including flu, COVID-19 and RSV, as well as occupational medicine services, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays. Patients can simply walk-in or, if preferred, schedule an appointment online.

“Urgent care centers provide a vital service to the community, particularly in areas where primary care providers are booked solid or are nonexistent,” said Robert Biernbaum, D.O, chief medical officer at WellNow Urgent Care. “WellNow offers more services than the average PCP, including X-rays and sutures, so patients can be treated right away without having to go to the emergency department, where they’ll face long wait times and an expensive bill.”

Urgent care centers are an increasingly important part of the U.S. health care marketplace, providing patients with much-needed access to quality care with shorter wait times and lower costs than the traditional emergency room. The new center in Lewiston will provide timely evaluation and treatment for ailments such as colds and flu, COVID-19, RSV, sprains, burns and lacerations, as well as on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals. Occupational medicine services, including workers’ compensation assistance, pre-employment physicals, drug and alcohol testing and more, are also available on a walk-in basis.

Patients who prefer to speak with a WellNow provider virtually, either from the comfort of home or on the go, can access the company’s virtual care platform 24/7 from their personal computer, tablet or smartphone. WellNow accepts many insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid.
