AlphaMeD recently opened a new, full-service, walk-in urgent care center facility in the Camelback Colonnade Shopping Center at 1743 E. Camelback Road, Suite A-3. It also has a location in north Scottsdale and has plans to open an AlphaMeD Arrowhead center on Dec. 6 and one in Chandler in late February.

Matthew Shores, M.D., an Arizona native who has worked in urgent care medicine for 12 years, began AlphaMeD last year. Also certified as a sports medicine provider, Shores and his team of physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical assistants and X-ray technicians offer services for many youth, high school and college athletic programs. Shores is the team physician for Brophy College Preparatory and Sunnyslope High School. He and Chris Eaton, also a Phoenix native, own the urgent care center on east Camelback Road.

The new care center on east Camelback Road provides hybrid, full-service urgent care/sports medicine services, serving patients with any illnesses and injuries an urgent care center can treat, including the flu, strep throat and urinary tract infections. Shores and the team perform many procedures including sutures, casting, splinting and foreign object removal. Patients can obtain X-rays and laboratory services. All medical providers are specialized in sports-related injuries and the center has a wide network of surgeons, physical trainers, imaging centers and other connections related to musculoskeletal medical needs.

This center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays with Saturday hours expected to be added. To learn more, visit
