"Higher quality healthcare at lower cost—that is the Holy Grail right now," said Dr. Joseph Sliwkowski, the Lead Physician at the North Andover center. “At Doctors Express, we believe we can help the entire healthcare delivery system better service patients by adding this essential urgent care component, which lifts the burden off of both primary care physicians and emergency rooms. More streamlined healthcare means more convenience for individuals and families, and much lower costs in the system overall."
