Staffed by a nurse practitioner, this service of Valley Medical Group provides convenient treatment for sore throats, earaches, sinus infections, and urinary tract infections, and offers school, camp and sports physicals, all without an appointment.

Today is no exception,” said Robert Clare, owner of the ShopRite of Oakland. “As government continues to pursue affordable health coverage for all, Valley is committed to delivering timely and superior healthcare.”
