Downtown Urgent Care Clinic Opens

The Post-Dispatch ran a nice article on Dr. Sonny Saggar's Downtown Urgent Care clinic, which opened this week in the Truman Building at 916 Olive. According to the article,
Saggar, 41, envisions drop-ins from stressed-out professional types who typically refuse to see a doctor, business travelers who sprain an ankle or get a sore throat and young people who "don't care about health care because they're never sick."
Joining Dr. Saggar will be Alicia Haywood, M.D., David Davis, M.D. and Sanit Saengsamran, M.D. The 2,600 sf acute medical care facility contains six patient exam rooms, an on-site lab and radiology department, front ambulance bay ready to take critical patients to a hospital emergency room and much more.

This clinic will be a great resource, not just for downtown residents, but for downtown office workers as well. I can think of several occasions when it would have been incredibly convenient to be able to walk a few blocks to see a doctor.

Best of luck to Dr. Saggar - I think this concept will be very successful.
