The month of May has been named the Mental Health Awareness month. As part of this initiative, Dr. Delvena Thomas, Director of DRT Behavioral Services is organizing a one day event called Free Mental Health Fair with other local businesses and organizations, in an effort to put all the pieces of holistic wellbeing together – mental, physical, and spiritual – and provide the community the tools they need to stay healthy and strong. The inspiration behind this initiative was brought about by the fact that Miami-Dade County has the greatest percentage of people with serious mental illness of any metropolitan community in the U.S.³

Attending community members will be able to enjoy the following free services: Boot camp @ 10am, blood pressure screenings, BMI and glucose readings, as well as free access to government mental health agencies and private practices of different specialties. Food trucks and refreshments will also be present for locals to enjoy.

Mental Health Awareness Facts:
• 9% of the population have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness³
• Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. (more common than homicide)²
• Depression and anxiety are among the most common medical problems worldwide²
• Mental illness affects 1 in 4 adults¹

A New Standard For Urgent Healthcare Centers In South Florida 4/7/15

A New Standard For Urgent Healthcare Centers In South Florida

After years of medical practice, Dr. Hossein Joukar envisioned a change in the way the local community receives healthcare. Tired of the clouded, inefficient and frankly, unfair experiences of those seeking medical attention, he set out to build a clinic with the patient in mind. In 2005 the first RiteCare facility was inaugurated and Dr. Joukar made sure that his establishment embodied the ideals that have governed his own medical career.
Starting an urgent/walk-in care facility seemed the most logical fit. Urgent cares are convenient alternatives to traditional healthcare facilities. As opposed to traditional primary providers, appointments are not necessary to receive attention, and they are available 7 days a week, with longer operating hours. Before urgent care, the only other option for families experiencing minor conditions such as cold and flu, sprains, minor burns and infections, was to rush over to a crowded hospital emergency room. These visits not only lasted long and uncomfortable wait times, sometimes up to 8 hours, but also cost a substantial amount of money, no matter the insurance provider. Urgent care centers like RiteCare have facilitated the treatment of non-life threatening conditions by seeing patients quickly and efficiently.
“It was important to provide a space for patients to feel confident in the care they are receiving, as well as the price they are paying,” said Dr. Joukar. “We are advocates for fair costs and transparency when it comes to billing. Our patients, insured or not, know exactly what will be charged before any procedure is performed.”
From the moment a patient arrives at any of the four RiteCare facilities, they can expect the utmost level of service performed by any of the board-certified physicians currently on call. In addition to urgent care medical services, RiteCare also provides a variety of services including primary care, physical therapy, school or sports related physical examinations, travel and seasonal vaccinations and immigration physicals. Employers can also count on RiteCare to provide drug testing, occupational medicine/therapy and work-related physical examinations.
