PRESS COVERAGE: Five Star Urgent Care expanding Syracuse presence with new Fairmount location

Five Star Urgent Care is expanding in Onondaga County and opening a location in Fairmount, NY in March 2014.

James Mulder, health care reporter with the Syracuse Post-Standard, spoke with Five Star Urgent Care Owner and Founder Dr. John Radford about Five Star’s plans for expansion in the Syracuse area.

Additionally, Radford remarks that people often go to emergency rooms for issues that can be treated at urgent care centers for a fraction of the time and money.
