Area urgent care centers hoping to make seeing a doctor easier

By AccessWDUN Staff

The next time you need to visit one of the Northeast Georgia Physicians Group's urgent care centers, you can see wait times for each location, save your spot in line and even trigger a text message to notify you when it’s time to leave your house.   This is all available at

                “We’re focused on helping people get the right care, at the right place, at the right time,” says Daniel Tuffy, president of NGPG.  “This new service helps you choose the right location when you need urgent care, and it allows you to wait in the comfort of your own home instead of an office.  And, best of all, it’s easy.”

                NGPG has seven urgent care locations - Braselton, Buford, Cleveland, Dacula, Dahlonega, Dawsonville, and Gainesville.  All are open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., for the treatment of minor illnesses and injuries.

                Effective June 1, Urgent Care in Dahlonega also resumed normal hours of 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. The location offered extended hours for several months to provide after-hours care following the closing of Chestatee Regional Hospital last summer. 

                “We’re proud we provided coverage when the community needed it most, and everyone is thankful emergency care will soon be available in Dahlonega when the hospital reopens as Northeast Georgia Medical Center Lumpkin on July 16,” says Tuffy.
