OPENING JANUARY 17, 2017
Lewis County General Hospital Extended Hours Clinic
The LCGH Extended Hours Clinic offers both primary care and after hours care for minor injuries or illnesses when your doctor isn't available.
The Clinic is open Monday-Friday from 1:00pm to 9:00pm and is located on the second floor of the LCGH Medical Arts Building, Suite 230, on the main campus in Lowville. Patients will be cared for by Board Certified Family Practice Physician Brian Shambo, M.D.
Whether a fever pops up unexpectedly or scheduling a simple routine physical to accommodate a challenging work schedule, the goal is to help new and returning patients gain improved access to medical care without having to seek care in an unfamiliar setting such as an urgent care, retail clinic or Emergency Room. When needed, the clinic also has access to laboratory and x-ray services.
Some of the common ailments we treat include: colds, flu, strains, sprains, upper respiratory infections, ear ache, sore throat /strep throat diagnoses, high fever, skin rashes, urinary tract infection, minor infections, nasal congestion, bronchitis, persistent cough, sinus infection, asthma, allergies, and vomiting.
If you have a regular primary care provider, clinic staff will make sure that he or she receives records of your visit and treatment.
Scheduled appointments can be made with Dr. Shambo from 1:00pm to 4:00pm and from 4:00pm until 8:30pm no appointment is needed. Walk-ins will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis.The more convenient hours are part of the hospital's mission to offer the more access to convenient, high quality primary care medicine to both new and existing patients in Lewis and the surrounding counties.
