Since opening our first medical center in 1981, Patient First's vision remains the same: making access to quality medical care as convenient and cost-effective as possible. To achieve this objective, we have adopted and continue to embrace many innovative operating systems and practices. All Patient First medical centers are open every day of the year from 8 am to 10 pm - including weekends and holidays. Patients can come at times that best fit their schedules and when urgent medical attention is needed on days as well as at times when other facilities are closed.No appointments are necessary. Patients can walk into a Patient First center and receive prompt attention upon arrival.X-rays, lab tests, and prescription drugs are available on-site to save time and reduce the need for extra trips. Patient First now offers both primary and urgent care services and participates in most insurance plans. We also provide a broad range of Occupational Health services. There are currently 73 Patient First centers in the mid-Atlantic region.
