We have a team of experienced and caring doctors who are always ready to help you with any health problems, from minor illnesses and injuries to chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease. Our goal is to provide convenient access for our patients no matter where they live or work—no referrals required! We have several locations throughout the city, including one right in Plaza de Paseo.

Primary Care.

Primary care is the first point of contact with a doctor. You may be referred to a primary care physician if you have a condition that requires regular monitoring, or if you need help managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure. Primary care physicians are generalists who can treat many conditions and refer patients to specialists as needed.

Walk-in Clinic.

The United Doctors is a walk-in clinic that offers the convenience of no appointment necessary, with flu shots available! We are open seven days a week and until 8pm on weekdays and 10pm on weekends. Come visit us at our convenient location in Plaza de Paseo, Las Terrenas!

Flu Shots.

Flu shots are available, free of charge and on a walk-in basis. They’re available during the work week and day, so if you’re in need of a flu shot, there’s no reason to hesitate. Flu shots are for everyone and will improve your health for the rest of the season!

Social Security Disability.

If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits, we can help.

If you are unable to work because of a disabling condition and cannot return to your previous job, we can help determine whether or not you are eligible for disability benefits under Social Security. We will also assist you in filing an appeal if your initial application is denied.

Social Security may consider a substance use disorder (drug addiction or alcoholism) as a disability only when it results from another medical condition that meets their criteria for listing or appendix disorders (i.e., mental disorders). If the substance use disorder itself is severe enough to meet the listing criteria, then no other medical condition need be present. However, most people with substance use disorders do not qualify under this rule because they do not have any other medically supported impairments that would meet Social Security’s listings.

No Medical Insurance.

Have you been waiting to get a doctor’s appointment? Are you worried about the cost? Do you have medical insurance that covers only certain procedures?

We provide affordable health care for all. We are a non-profit, and we accept cash, credit cards, and checks.

We accept walk-ins and have flu shots available!

We have a walk-in clinic and we always accept walk-ins. We can also administer flu shots to our patients on the day of their visit!

Get medical attention

If you are bitten by a dog, you should get medical attention.

If the bite is severe and/or deep, you should go to the emergency room.

Keep the wound clean and bandaged

  • Keep the wound clean and bandaged.
  • If you see signs of infection, such as redness, swelling or pus discharge at the site of injury, consult a doctor immediately. In addition to this, if you have a fever (temperature above 38 degrees Celsius), go to the doctor unless it is accompanied by other symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea.

Look up what to do with the dog

If you were bitten by an animal, it’s important to take the following steps:

  • Contact animal control. If you do not know where the dog is or who owns it, contact your local animal control agency and give them as much information about the bite—the type of animal and its breed, for example—as possible. This will help them track down the dog and its owner.* Contact your insurance company and doctor immediately. You should also contact both if you are allergic or have another medical condition that requires immediate attention.* Contact your employer so that they can be aware of what happened in case any workplace safety issues arise from this incident (for example, being bit while on-site at work).

You dont have to panic.

If you are bitten by a dog, don’t panic.

The first thing to do is get medical attention. This will make sure that there are no infections or injuries, and also that you don’t need any vaccinations.

Keep the wound clean and bandaged until it heals up, but remember not to touch the bandage with your hands—use gloves instead! If all goes well, the dog bite should heal normally after about two weeks.

If you have been bitten by a dog, look up what kind of breed it was so that if someone asks later on in life whether or not they can own one themselves (which happens often), then at least now when someone says “I want a pit bull because they’re so cute!” You know how dangerous those things are because THEY ARE NOT CUTE AT ALL

There are a few things to keep in mind when you are bitten by a dog. First of all, if it happened recently and you have pain or swelling, go get medical attention right away. Second of

thing to remember is that dogs bite for many different reasons and there’s no telling why this particular one bit you (although it probably wasn’t because he doesn’t like his food). It may be because he has been provoked by something else happening around him or even just because he was protecting himself from being hurt when he thought someone was coming at him aggressively.”


In conclusion, we at the United Doctors of Plaza de Paseo are committed to providing you with the best care possible. We accept walk-ins and have flu shots available!
