Phelps Hospital Opens Walk-in Croton Clinic

Open since October, the primary care and radiology center for adults in the ShopRite plaza is a hit.

Introducing Phelps at Croton, a new primary care facility welcoming walk-ins and offering diagnostic radiology to adults, in the ShopRite plaza.

Croton Mayor Leo Wiegman toured the facility at its recent ribbon-cutting and was pleased with this addition to 440 Riverside Avenue.

"Croton has had a very good working relationship with Phelps for a long time, especially in their support and technical assistance for our Emergency Medical Services for so many years," said Wiegman. "Opening this medical office right here in Croton shows how deeply committed Phelps is to our community."

The practice has actually been up and running since October and has even better received than administrators imagined.

Phelps Senior Vice President Daniel Blum said that people seem to really appreciate the ability to come without making an appointment (though please note that appointments are needed for ultrasounds and specialists).

"Creating satellite primary care offices is a good way for the hospital to reach out into the communities we serve," Blum said. "Judging from the response we have gotten, Croton residents appreciate having such convenient access to our services, which are backed up by hospital resources and facilities when needed."

Primary Care Physicians include:

Marco Zarlengo, MD, and Michael Finkelstein, MD, both internists

Jane Connolly, FNP, a family nurse practitioner

Specialists are:

Eliz Agopian, MD, neurologist

James Hellerman, MD, endocrinologist

Went there today for the first time as a walk-in and was seen promptly by a doctor who gave me a thorough exam and was very nice (Dr. Finklestein). It's so convenient to be able to see quality doctors without an appointment. It was a wonderful experience.
