BRIDGEPORT — Since February 2009, Bridgeport Express Care has sought to provide the local community with excellent medical care.
Brothers Timothy Peasak, D.O., and David Peasak, nurse practitioner, started the business along with Natalie King, D.O., a year after opening Elkins Express Care.
“Someone had approached us about taking over Dr. Medina’s practice, which was upstairs. We didn’t have a real interest in that because it was a gastroenterology practice,” David Peasak said. “We came over and looked at the building and thought, with the shortage of providers in the area, it would be something special to open up a clinic in our hometown.”
“They were just really involved in the community and felt that there was a need for an urgent care in the community at that time,” King added.
Now, Bridgeport Express Care will be relocating to better serve patients’ needs.
“Business has been really good for us, and we feel like this move will make us more accessible for patients and give us a little bit more visibility,” King said.
Starting next month, Bridgeport Express Care will be located at the former Medbrook Medical Center at 1370 Johnson Avenue.
“It looks like a small ER,” Peasak said. “The patient ﬂow is phenomenal. It’ll help our overall process from when the patients check in until they check out. It’ll be a much smoother transition for our staﬀ and for the patients. The space is much more accommodating for where we’re at with our practice.”
“It’s a good move for the business because we’ll be more visible,” King added. “A lot of people in the community are used to going to that facility. But ultimately what we want to do is improve patient care. We’ll have more exam rooms. They’ll have to wait less, and the ﬂow just works a lot better as an urgent care center.”
Over the last nearly six years, Bridgeport Express Care has seen exponential growth, King said.
“Every year we run our numbers, and we’re seeing a few more patients a day on average every month. It’s really continued to grow,” she said.
Bridgeport Express Care functions not only as an urgent care center but as a family practice, and this year, David Peasak has started working with Bridgeport High School’s football team.
“Dr. Secret and I have talked about doing the same thing with some of the Clarksburg teams if we can provide that to them,” King said.
One method Bridgeport Express Care has used to help local sports teams is by providing free sports physicals.
“We feel like that’s a service that we can provide the community to do those for free for children,” King said. “It helps them to get back on the ﬁeld.”
Bridgeport Express Care also oﬀers an on-call service for the sports teams, she said.
“If there’s an injury on the football ﬁeld, and they just need an ankle X-ray, we can send someone in to do the X-ray and take a look at it that night if we need to,” King said.
Helping out the local community is important to the staﬀ of Bridgeport Express Care, King said.
