The communities and neighborhoods in Southeast Tucson and Vail continue to be some of the fastest-growing locations in Southern Arizona.

I live in the area, and I know what my patients mean when they tell me how difficult it is to find primary care providers close to their own homes. Access to health care is a vital issue in our region, which is further away from the large medical facilities in Tucson.

TMCOne has recently opened an office in the TMC Rincon Health Center, providing a meaningful option for families to receive medical care and services at a location in their own community.

I’m proud to work alongside the excellent TMCOne providers at Rincon, who focus on partnering with patients and families to best meet their wellness and health care needs.

At the Rincon office, TMCOne offers primary care for all ages. In addition to the location’s convenience, many providers (including me) have early morning hours, starting as early as 6:20 AM to accommodate families before they start their busy work or school day.

Late afternoon hours are available for patients and families with schedules that are more open at the end of the day. When an acute illness can’t wait, the office provides same-day appointments for established and new patients, further expanding access to care on the southeast side.

TMCOne at Rincon also provides endocrinology services. Dr. Divya Pati, a TMCOne endocrinologist, is at the Rincon facility twice monthly.

TMC has fostered an added advantage, partnering with specialists who will rotate at the Rincon Health Campus on a regular basis. Specialty services include dermatology, orthopedics, cardiology, obstetrics/gynecology, general surgery, and radiology (CT scans and ultrasound).

These specialty services are otherwise 30 – 45 minutes away for most of the families in the southeast communities. Like my patients, I can appreciate spending more time on important things besides travel.

There is more room to expand services within the location, and we are prepared to serve the growing area.

A beautiful health-care center with friendly staff is now close by for southeast residents, featuring primary and specialty services for the entire family. It is uplifting to be a part of what this center is doing for our communities – when your family is in need we are here for you.
