I think it’s awesome that we now have so many options for great medical care so close to Steiner Ranch. In addition to the new hospital in Lakeway, Lakeway Regional Medical Center, the new Austin Diagnostic Clinic going in at Quinlan Crossings, we now have VIK Medical, a locally owned Urgent Care and Family Practice right up the road at the entrance to River Place. VIK Medical has invited us all to their Grand Opening Celebration, Thursday, May 2, 2013 from 4:30-8pm. Family fun with a bounce house, sno-cones and photo booth. Featuring : CODE BLUE Band at 6pm and appetizers by Zack’s Bistro. The Four Points Chamber of Commerce will be doing a ribbon cutting and there will be drawings for gift certificates to The Lash Lounge, Rise and Shine Bakery, and Beleza MedSpa. VIK Medical is at the entrance to River Place neighborhood. See the VIK Medical FB page for details.
VIK Medical Announces Opening of Third Location in Four Points Area
Austin,TX- Locally owned VIK Medical Urgent Care and Family Practice has opened a full service clinic in the Four Points area of Austin. The clinic offers the same high quality providers and extended hours as the locations in Westlake and Lakeway. In addition, patients will soon have access to CT and MRI (advanced imaging) as well as a variety of specialists within the same building for ease and convenience.
“Our two current locations were bursting at the seams, “ said practice administrator Kyle Froelich. “ A new location is a natural progression. Many of our current patients live in the River Place or Steiner Ranch area. This will be a much more convenient location for them. ”
The Tuscan style building has a different look to it than the clinics in Westlake and Lakeway, but those who have been patients at VIK Medical in the past will recognize the zen-like atmosphere of the lobby with its signature salt-water aquarium, and complimentary coffee/tea .
About VIK Medical
Owned and operated by Dr. Michael P. Vik and Dr. J. Brad Lichtenhan, VIK Medical is a hybrid of the traditional urgent care center and family practice. Extended hours means that patients can be seen any time they are ill or injured as well as visits for comprehensive wellness exams and routine care. Electronic medical records afford patients the choice of being seen at any of the three locations with the benefit of continuity of care.
Formerly known as Bee Caves Medical, Dr. Michael Vik started his first practice over ten years ago in Westlake. Since that time, the Westlake location has expanded to twice the original size, with Airrosti Sports Medicine and several area specialists (including Texas Heart & Vascular, Austin ENT, The OB/GYN Group of Austin and Central Texas Pediatric Orthopedics ) officing out of the Westlake location several days a week.
VIK Medical expanded to Lakeway in 2009 with a clinic located in the Randall’s shopping complex. Dr. Brad Lichtenhan became a partner in 2009 bringing with him many of his patients in Southwest Austin.
