For Matt Dickson and Kim Dickson, their May 31st Grand
Opening of South
Bay Urgent Care is a Dream Come True. The Imperial Beach couple always
wanted to open a business in a small beach community where they lived. They
wanted to raise their son Brad and daughter Annie along with dog Rusty and can
serve and give back to the community where they are raising their family.
Luckily for us Imperial Beach was the community they chose.
Dr. Kim, Dickson, a San Diego native, has a background in family medicine and her husband
Matt Dickson is an emergency Room Doctor. They put in 2 years of time
and a lot of hard work and love into building a 7,500-sq. ft. urgent care
that has a state of the art laboratory and x-ray imaging machine to provide
patients with fast and accurate results. Before now, many of services and care
they provide patients would have had to go to the Emergency Room to get.
They boast nurse’s stations, a procedure room, 8 large exam room rooms to go
along with the lab and x-ray imaging.
Their commitment to the community should be commended, besides hiring their staff with
workers from the community, the walls of the
clinic are filled with beautiful art pieces by local artists. The back wall of
the clinic has a beautiful mural taking up the whole back wall with a mural of
the Imperial Beach Pier by local artist, William Edwin Willis that is stunning.
A photo of their dog Rusty in a lab coat as the lab tech provides some
humor to help relax patients stressed by serious situations. You'll also find
beautiful woodwork for their counters and shelves which has a calming effect to
go with its beauty.
South Bay Urgent Care can treat those who need
medical attention quickly, but don’t require an emergency room visit or if
you can't wait the time it takes to get into your normal physician.
No appointment is necessary and they take most insurance. South Bay Urgent
Care Center is open 7 days a week. For more detailed information you can visit
