Is Waltham Getting A Doctors Express?

Doctor's Express would be located at the Main Street Marketplace.

Doctors Express, an urgent care center chain, is planning to open a location in Waltham, according to its website.

While the website does not specify exactly where it would be located, a sign for Doctor's Express appeared in a window at the Main Street Marketplace site last week. The plaza's realtor, The Dartmouth Company, shows the company as one of the tenant's on it website. 

The centers focus on providing lab services, x-rays, occupational therapy and doctor's offiices.

Urgent care centers, in general, are not common in Massachusetts but are showing up in more state communities, according to the Boston Globe. The centers typically provide medical care much at a cheaper cost than a traditional hosptial, according to the paper, which reports that Doctor's Express charges insurers $130 per patient visit. The centers are intended to treat patients with important issues that don't require a trip to an emergency room.
