THE WOODLANDS (December 13, 2017)

Residents in east Montgomery County in need of after-hours care for non-life-threatening illnesses and minor injuries now have a new option for immediate diagnosis and treatment – Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Benders Landing.

Staffed by board-certified family medicine physicians, including Darrel R. Dixon, M.D. and Jorge A. Kohatsu, MD, Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Benders Landing combines the comfort of a primary care practice with the convenience of extended office hours and walk-in access.

“It’s a scenario we all know too well – an illness or injury that presents itself after the primary care physician’s office has closed,” said David James, M.D., senior vice president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Medical Group. “Instead of waiting it out, patients can now seek immediate care at any one of eight Memorial Hermann Urgent Care centers across the greater Houston area.

”Modeled after sister facilities in Clear Lake, Friendswood, Fulshear, Spring, Tanglewood, Telfair and Washington Avenue, Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Benders Landing is capable of treating patients as young as six months old, and offers an array of services for non-life-threatening conditions such as flu, fever, earaches, insect bites, sprains, simple fractures, eye injuries and cuts requiring stitches. X-ray imaging and laboratory services are also offered on-site, as well as sports, camp and school physicals. As an added convenience, the facility offers online check-in so patients can reserve their place in line ahead of time. Patients also are able to track their appointment so they know when to arrive, reducing unnecessary time in the waiting room.

“Urgent care is a great option for families who are on the go. They can walk-in and get the care they need, when they need it, and it’s close to home,” added Dr. James.

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Benders Landing is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is located in the Kroger Marketplace Shopping Center at 4057 Riley Fuzzel Rd., Suite 1100B, Spring, TX 77386. For more information, or for online check-in to save your place in line, visit
