Closure Fears For Yubadocs

Hundreds of area residents have signed a letter of concern about Nevada County’s largest Urgent Care facility possibly closing permanently. Yubadocs, whose operators want to retire, was reported to have been acquired by an unnamed large healthcare system. The building was damaged over a month ago by a snowstorm and was scheduled to be remodeled and reopened early this month. But the author of the letter, Janet Cohen, says there’s been a dispute over lease terms with the owners of the building, at the Fowler Center. She says she and many of her friends have been going to Yubadocs since it opened in 2000…

The letter says, among other things, that Yubadocs is the only full-service walk-in clinic with an X-ray machine on site. And it says it’s also taken some of the burden off the emergency room at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

Neither my wife nor I have been able to find a primary Care Physician anywhere (ANYWHERE) within 50 miles of Grass Valley; it has been impossible. We have tried every suggestion, followed every lead, to no avail. My wife needs medicine which cannot be gotten without a doctor's signature, causing us to go to the emergency room to get it. Who is working on this problem, and what can we do to get a few more doctors to live and work in Nevada County?

I'm a veteran and have used n this facility many times. They have always been very helpful and professional.Instead of having to go all the down to Mather or McClellan AFB I received treatment at Yuba Docs and charged back to VA.If this facility is closed it will be a great loss to all the Veterans who use it.please contact me if I can help in any way to save this vital community facility.
