Doctors Express Danbury Featured in Danbury News-Times Inside Business

Danbury (PRUnderground) January 2nd, 2014

An interview with Danbury News Times Inside Business features Doctors Express Danbury Co-Owner Tom Kelly speaking on the unique value the Danbury Urgent Care Center brings to the Greater Danbury area.

Opened in March of this year, Doctors Express Danbury has now seen thousands of patients utilizing its’ services,in the Greater Danbury area.

Treating everything from broken bones to flu’s and colds, the urgent care center, located at 2 Main Street, has served a niche that has not been available up until now: fast, affordable, walk in care with an emphasis on getting the patients in and out in under an hour.

Deeming the center the “nicest in the state” Kelly and his staff has made an effort to not only treat the patients ailments but to make them feel comfortable and welcome as well, offering the patients coffee or water as soon as they walk through the doors.

“Everything from the artwork, sconces, flooring, and paint colors are designed for relaxation and comfort”, Kelly stated. . “We go to great lengths to provide uncommon service and follow-through, working hard to line up appointments with specialists, and taking ownership of health issues until they are resolved” he is quoted as saying in the interview. 

Kelly also emphasized the importance of working with the community as vital, and sees both the success of the urgent care center as well as well the city of Danbury’s revitalization efforts dependent on the integration of local contractors and businesses. Working alongside the medical community, and reaching out across all platforms to integrate rather than isolate has been an ongoing goal of the co-owner.

“We’ve invested over $1,000,000 locally to bring this facility to town and in the process created 25 full /part- time jobs and utilized local contractors and businesses as our vendors. Our decision to invest in this downtown location also enabled a new concept Dunkin Donuts opening next door. This will bring another great facelift to the south-end of downtown Danbury and may not have occurred if we hadn’t opened our facility. We have brought accessible, affordable healthcare to Greater Danbury and its’ surrounding communities and have been met with a tremendous response.”
