District Medical Group Opens Primary Care Clinic to Serve Scottsdale and Tempe Residents & Visitors

DMG Papago

DMG Papago Family Practice offers walk-in and same day care to patients of all ages

PHOENIX () — District Medical Group (DMG), a Phoenix-based non-profit medical group comprised of more than 650 providers across more than 25 medical specialties, has opened a primary care clinic at 1805 N. Scottsdale Road on the Scottsdale-Tempe border, conveniently located north of the 202 highway off the Rural Road exit.  Called DMG Papago Family Practice, the location serves patients of all ages offering preventive medical care as well as acute care for common illnesses and minor injuries.  

”We are thrilled to expand our footprint to serve residents and visitors of Scottsdale and Tempe by providing primary care services by appointment as well as walk-in care,” said Kote Chundu, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of DMG. “Our goal is to continue to grow and offer quality, accessible medical care to patients of all ages close to home. This clinic provides us the opportunity to bring medical services to a community that needs additional primary care providers.” 

The location was formerly a primary care clinic run by UnitedHealthcare (UHC), which closed in October 2019.  Recognizing the need for primary care providers to serve this diverse area, which includes established residential neighborhoods, newly constructed and existing apartment complexes, employers, hotels, Skysong Innovations, and Arizona State University, DMG stepped in to fill the gap and support the community.

The DMG Papago Clinic is open Monday-Friday, 7:30am-5:30pm.  Appointments can be scheduled by calling (602) 470-5550; walk-in care is also available.  Medical services offered include but are not limited to:

  • Care for minor injuries
  • Immunizations 
  • School and sports physicals
  • Treatment of common illnesses, such as cold, flu and allergy symptoms
  • Wellness exams, including well-child medical exams
