Located near Plaza Fiesta, the center is designed to be convenient for people who live, work or shop in the Buford Highway area.

“We know that people can’t always get to the doctor between 9 and 5,” says Genia Sutton, Southeast Regional Manager of Urgent Care for Tenet Healthcare, the parent company of Atlanta Medical Center. “This location, in the heart of the Buford Highway corridor, is convenient for people who need to see a doctor at night and on the weekends – as well as on weekdays – and want quality care.”
