Welcome to OccuMed (no more OccuMed Express Medical Clinic) and we thank you for visiting our site. Our clinic aims to provide convenient primary and urgent care services to the communities of Whiting, Hammond, East Side, Hegewisch, East Chicago and beyond.  We have a bilingual, attentive staff, including our family physician – who speaks Spanish. Our clinic does not employ nurse practitioners – we have physicians who practice Family Medicine/General Practice, Internal Medicine/Endocrinology, and General Surgery. Please explore our website and do not hesitate to contact us via phone or email. We accept Medicare, PPO insurance plans and Traditional Medicaid. We will soon accept HoosierHealthwise, Hoosier Care Connect and Healthy Indiana Plan. If you are under-insured or uninsured, we have a flexible cash payment plan for our services.
