BMAC services

Boulder Mobile Acute Care provides evaluation and treatment of of non-life-threatening acute illness and injury outside of the traditional office setting.  As a board-certified Family Practice physician, Dr. King recommends that if you have an acute injury or illness, you should first contact your primary provider to see if they can treat you, but if they are unavailable within a reasonable time frame, or travel to an office for evaluation is difficult, then treatment by BMAC is an option.
