Startup Knowledge

A traditional doctor’s practice just didn’t seem the right fit for Jason Junkins, MD. A licensed funeral director and embalmer, Dr. Junkins is anything but your traditional physician. After years in private practice and as a hospitalist, Dr. Junkins was ready for a change. He found Practice Velocity’s affiliate Urgent Care Consultants through an Internet search and knew within minutes he had found what he needed: An experienced urgent care consulting team to assist in realizing his dream. “Urgent Care Consultants helped me with site selection and all the nuances of starting up,” said Dr. Junkins. “We had a good start from the get-go.”

“Practice Velocity is a proven team member. I don’t have to worry. Everybody at Practice Velocity has been an extension of our team from day one.”

All-encompassing Solution

Once planning was underway, Dr. Junkins faced decisions about his electronic medical record, practice management system, and billing services. He needed professionals who know the business of urgent care. Dr. Junkins was referred to Practice Velocity for a complete solution for his urgent care center.

Proven Team Member

Dr. Junkins relies on the team at Practice Velocity to make every detail of Express Family Care’s performance a priority. “The team is very thorough; they don’t miss anything,” he said. “They are knowledgeable, fast, and they communicate with me. If they say they will get back to you with an answer, you can count on it. They will get back to you.”

Freedom to Grow

Urgent care startups generally take years to expand to multi-site businesses. Not so for Dr. Junkins. Soon after his first clinic opened in 2012, he acquired a building previously occupied by a local medical center. Dr. Junkins was able to open his second location in record time – just six weeks from signing the lease to opening day. Using Practice Velocity services allowed Dr. Junkins the freedom to focus on his business expansion. “I never dreamed of three clinics in three years,” Dr. Junkins said. “It’s been quite a ride. I feel very blessed.”
