CareFirst Immediate Care treats a wide variety of common illnesses and minor injuries, such as colds, flu and fevers, respiratory and urinary tract infections, fractures, sprains and strains, earaches, diarrhea and food poisoning.  Immediate Care will be open evenings and weekends to provide an alternative to the emergency room at times when primary care physicians are not open. 

In addition, the facility will also be home to the practice of Dr. Jonathan Ramos, a Board-Certified Family Medicine physician. Alfred Bonjean, MD, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, Bruce Brincko, DPM, Board Certified Podiatrist, William Conte, MD, Board Certified Neurologist and Thach Nguyen, MD, Board Certified Cardiologist will see patients at the CareFirst Valparaiso location.
