Family practice and convenient care medical clinic opens in St. C.

BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio  -- A new family practice and convenient care medical clinic opened its doors to the public for the first time Monday.
Paramount Medical Care emphasizes patient relationships by providing them with availability plus flexible hours.
The business's main goal is to offer hours for those who have busy work schedules and can't visit the doctor's office during normal office hours. They'll be available during the evenings and even on the weekends.
They're located right on National Road in St. Clairsville, and they take walk-ins ages 15 and up. You can also call to make an appointment.
"We're hoping to get patients in and out very quickly instead of having to wait hours at the doctor's office," said Lisa Beaver, family nurse practitioner. "I'll personally be returning phone calls directly to patients if they do have any questions that they want to ask the nurse practitioner."
Dr. Renato Dela Cruze is the Medical Director, a huge bonus since he is already located in the building.
Kathy King and Brent Kovalski, who are both shareholders in the company, said the location was prime because there's a pharmacy already in the building as well as lab services.
"Patients are looking for offices that are open with late hours," Dela Cruze said. "So I think now we can provide that to the community and able to see patients with late hours.
They're hoping to see patients up until 9 at night.
Dela Cruze says they offer regular check-ups and will see anybody who needs primary care and does not have a regular doctor.
They're also accepting most insurance. In two or three months, they're planning on opening up an office in Shadyside.
