Immediate Care of Goldsboro opened its doors on December 28,1997. This came from the physician community's desire to have a quality walk-in clinic for their patients who could not wait for an appointment. The Emergency Physicians of Wayne Memorial Hospital were approached with the concept and established Immediate Care. This facility is owned and operated by Dr. Terry Grant, Dr. Tom Knutson, Dr. Rick Potts, Dr. Lloyd Smith, Dr. Kirk Jones, Dr. Daniel Drotts, Dr. Craig Soltis, Dr. Hervy Kornegay, Jr., Dr. Steve Moye and Dr. Bryan Gerr. All of these physicians are board certified in Emergency Medicine. Board Certification is America's standard for excellence in medical care. Immediate Care also employs certified physician assistants Tim Benge, Bridgette Buckman, Jeff Harrison, Jose Maldonado, Jeremiah Montgomery, Jeff Pitta, Misty Rouse, Ashley Slate, Rufus Williams, and Neeraja Rao.
