Silver Strand Urgent Care is now open. With the ongoing pandemic and healthcare on everyone’s mind these days, the new Silver Strand Urgent Care will be an important medical resource and welcome addition to the communities of Imperial Beach and Coronado.

Specializing in same day care and sudden medical needs, Silver Strand Urgent Care treats acute injuries, on-the-job accidents, common ailments, respiratory illnesses, COVID-19, broken bones, burns, bites, pediatric problems and more. The facility has a laboratory and an x-ray suite on the premises and provides testing, including same day Covid-19 testing, physicals, screenings, vaccines, and other well- patient needs, as well as urgent medical concerns.

“We’re here for any and all of the unexpected urgencies that can happen to us,” says Brian Tyson, M.D., Medical Director of the new facility. “Skateboard spills, kitchen cuts, fever, falls, cough, COVID-19 concerns, broken bones, pediatric problems—we handle them all. We are also here for well patients and will assist with testing, workers comp cases, pre-employment and sports physicals, and other needs. We treat patients of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest family members, and everyone in between. We are looking forward to being part of the Silver Strand community.”

Medical experts recommend patients seek help at facilities like Silver Strand Urgent Care when they can’t get in to see their primary care physician or pediatrician right away and don’t need the complex care, expense or long wait of an emergency room visit. “With COVID-19 numbers spiking and hospitals overextended, Silver Strand is a great medical care option for our community,” says Tyson.

Tyson is a board-certified family practitioner with more than a decade of experience in emergency medicine. He will lead a professional healthcare team of highly trained physician assistants, family nurse practitioners, and medical assistants, all credentialed and licensed by the State of California and dedicated to providing patients with excellent care. Silver Strand Urgent Care’s medical staff will also include x-ray and laboratory technicians. Silver Strand Urgent Care’s care team is bilingual and fluent in both English and Spanish.
