?Atlanta, Ga. – The 2017 NLL World Champion Georgia Swarm is proud to announce the addition of another corporate partner Urgent Care at Peachtree/Urgent Care at Druid Hills, the city’s only urgent care clinics open 7 days a week until 10:30 p.m. Urgent Care at Peachtree and Urgent Care at Druid Hills will be the official urgent cares of the Georgia Swarm.
Urgent Care at Peachtree will have its own Dr. Brandon Paritz serve as the team physician for the 2018 season. He will be on the sidelines taking care of the players and staff medical needs throughout the season. An enthusiastic fan, as well as a physician on the Urgent Care at Peachtree medical staff, Dr. Paritz will provide comprehensive care to the team both on and off the field all season long.
"It gives me great pleasure to be on the field with the Swarm and watch all the action up close," Dr. Paritz said. "I grew up with lacrosse and have watched it all my life. I know the types of injuries that occur in lacrosse, and with Urgent Care at Peachtree being open from 9 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. daily, we can easily diagnose and treat those injuries so that players get back on the field quickly."
Not only are Urgent Care at Peachtree and Urgent Care at Druid Hills the only urgent care clinics in Metro Atlanta that are open after hours, they are also the only ones that are owned and operated by local ER doctors. They are not corporate owned. This allows Swarm players and other patients with urgent medical needs to see real doctors (not mid level practitioners) without the expense and time that usually goes along with a trip to the emergency room or other similar clinics.
"We have x-ray and lab facilities on site to diagnose and treat all types of injuries and illnesses," Dr. Paritz said. "We have close working relationships with physicians providing many specialties within sports medicine, and we can get a patient in to see a specialist quickly."
The Swarm’s Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta says, "The players see Dr. Paritz for physicals, injuries and illnesses, and so do their families, along with the Swarm staff. Urgent Care at Peachtree is convenient, and Dr. Paritz makes himself available to us 24/7 whenever we need him. We really value this sort of relationship; You just can’t find that level of service anywhere else. Both clinics have distinguished themselves from the other facilities in the area with their outstanding service to patients."
Urgent Care at Peachtree’s medical care is not confined to office visits. Dr. Paritz and his staff have a regular presence at Swarm practices and games, working alongside the club’s athletic training staff to monitor the players and keep them healthy.
Urgent Care at Peachtree is located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. For those living in the Druid Hills/Decatur/Emory/Toco Hill area, Urgent Care at Druid Hills is another convenient location close to the 1-85 North Druid Hills exit.
Urgent Care at Peachtree physicians are also team doctors for Georgia State University Athletics, Atlanta Silverbacks Pro soccer, Atlanta Rollergirls, and SCAD Athletics.
