About Us

Bayside Urgent Care Center Provides Fast, Friendly Care in Clearwater, Florida

Located in Clearwater, Florida, Bayside Urgent Care Center was founded by family and sports medicine physician Dr. Richard Wallace in 2012. Dr. Wallace was motivated by the belief that he could create an efficient and cost-effective urgent care center to help patients with non-life-threatening emergencies and other medical needs receive care.

It is the mission of Bayside Urgent Care Center to provide fast, friendly care, and most patients are treated and discharged in under an hour. The experienced Bayside team performs diagnostic testing and treatment for a fraction of the cost of an emergency room visit. Bayside Urgent Care Center has cared for more than 100,000 patients and serves the Clearwater and surrounding community 365 days a year.

Meet Founder, Dr. Richard Wallace

 In 2000, Dr. Wallace graduated from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, and completed his family medicine residency at USF/Morton Plant Family Practice in Clearwater, Florida, in 2003. He went on to finish a sports medicine fellowship at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, Florida.

During his sports medicine fellowship, Dr. Wallace became interested in urgent care medicine. He was drawn to the opportunity of providing care to patients with varying needs in a fast-paced environment. He has taken time to assemble an experienced team of board-certified and licensed physician assistants, nurses, and support staff.

“It is my goal to ensure that the care patients receive at Bayside Urgent Care Center is of the same level that I would want for my family and loved ones.”
