In mid-October, Dr. Corey Fish plans to open Pacific Crest Children’s Urgent Care at 6924 N.E. Sandy Boulevard, becoming the second tenant in the Roseway neighborhood’s new Goodrich Building. Scott and Delaney Davis opened Roseway Veterinary Hospital on the western side of the building in August.
“I’ve always had strong ideas about trying to practice medicine the right way and I’ve been lucky enough to learn from some talented physicians,” said Fish. “In Portland, there’s not really a dedicated pediatric, after-hours care space. Parents often have no choice but to take their kids to the ER – which can be unnecessarily expensive, stressful, and time consuming. Our idea is to create a cost-effective alternative, staffed with pediatric experts, who can do most of what could be done in an ER. We’ll provide after hours, compassionate, evidence-based, expert pediatric care for a variety of common illnesses and injuries. This includes minor fracture care, stitches, sore throats, runny noses, etcetera – as well as on-site x-ray and lab services.”
Fish was born and raised in northwest Washington, attended the University of Washington School of Medicine and did his pediatric residency at Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas.
“My wife and I live nearby and I was attracted to the wide variety of businesses in Roseway and the general feel of the neighborhood,” said Fish. “I haven’t been yet, but I’m really looking forward to checking out Mom and Pop Wine Shop. I feel strongly about providing a high-quality alternative for after hours pediatric care in the neighborhood. Pediatrics really is a sub-specialty unto its own and you’ll always get better medical care from those with significant pediatric training than by trying to access care in places that don’t deal exclusively with kids. ”
