Trinity Urgent Care, LLC, at 1460 Trinity Dr., Suite A & B, in Los Alamos now accepts a much broader spectrum of insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid.
“Along with Medicare and Medicaid and the many insurances we accept, we also have a very fair self-pay system to help people out who don’t have insurance,” explained Dr. Edward Grant, PA-DOM, during an interview Wednesday. “We work hard to provide services to everybody.”
Dr. Robert McClees opened Trinity Urgent Care Nov. 30, 2015 and serves as CEO and chief medical officer. Dr. Ed Grant, PA-DOM has worked at the clinic since its inception and he and Dr. McClees welcomed internist Dr. Ron Morrell last year. Morrell typically works weekends and fills in as needed.
Trinity Urgent Care provides patients with up-to-date expert evaluation and treatment covering a wide range of minor emergencies, illnesses and injuries and is an alternative to the often long wait or high cost of visits to a hospital emergency room, Dr. Grant said. “An ER really should be for critical emergencies and primary care offices are often overloaded, so we really do fill a void.”
He explained that they work hard to get patients to imaging quickly so they have a better understanding of what their pathology will be and get them a definitive referral to a specialist.
“We are faster and a fraction of the cost of an ER,” he said. “If you need a clarification that something is not broken … with us you can be in and out within an hour.”
The clinic offers patients a new model of medicine that puts patients first in an exceptional environment.
- No Appointment Necessary;
- Treating Adults and Children;
- Board Certified Providers;
- Highest Standards of Care;
- X-Ray services available; and
- Lab services available.
“It is so important that patients have faith in the care they receive and we here at Trinity Urgent Care are incredibly grateful for the strong support we have received from this community,” Dr. Grant said.
Dr. McClees volunteers as the medical director of the Pajarito Mountain Ski Patrol and has said that it is a way for him to give back to the community. McClees is married to Sheila McClees, a Registered Nurse at Barranca Mesa Elementary School. Dr. McClees earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from St. John’s College in Santa Fe. He also earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of New Mexico and a Medical Degree from UNM School of Medicine. He completed his internship in Internal Medicine and Residency training in Family Medicine at the University New Mexico School of Medicine. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine.
Dr. Grant has been practicing medicine since 1994 and holds several advanced degrees. He has worked at Isis Medicine since 2002 and has been both assistant professor of clinical medicine at the UNM School of Medicine and associate professor of Oriental medicine at Southwest Acupuncture College. One of his professional goals is to find a balance between Eastern and Western medicine, integrating both modalities to maximize patient care.
Trinity Urgent Care is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. For information, call 505.412.6033.
