Oswego Health has named Martin Weitzel, DO., as the medical director for the Fulton urgent care center, located at 510 S. Fourth St. in Fulton.
Dr. Weitzel is a familiar face at the healthcare facility as he has worked part-time at the urgent care facility for the past two years.
He replaces Richard Koehler, MD, who is retiring from the position and served as the medical director since the urgent care’s opening in 2009.
The new medical director has 26 years of primary care experience, having owned and operated his own medical practice for many years.
Dr. Weitzel, in addition to providing care at the Fulton urgent care, most recently worked at Cayuga Medical Center’s urgent care center located in Ithaca.
“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Weitzel to our healthcare team,” said Lori Greeney, RN, clinical nurse manager of the Fulton urgent care center. “He is experienced, very thorough, a good listener and has a great relationship with the staff. I am sure those that visit urgent care will find he provides excellent care.”
Dr. Weitzel grew up in Michigan in a family with strong medical ties. Both his father and a brother are physicians, while a sister is a nurse.
He earned his undergraduate and doctor of osteopathic medicine from Michigan State University.
He completed his family practice residency at Metro Health Center in Erie, Pa., and his internship at Saginaw Osteopathic Hospital in Saginaw, Mich.
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family, along with downhill skiing, mountain biking, hiking and camping.
The Fulton urgent care center is open daily, including weekends and holidays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. for the treatment of minor illnesses and injuries.
The urgent care center is part of the Fulton Medical Center, which also offers lab, medical imaging, physical therapy and occupational health services. To contact the urgent care center, call 592-3500.
