April 2011, Yelp.com — In an effort to work more closely with their patients, Simplicity Urgent Care founders, Drs. John John and John Maguire, posted a new video to their homepage on Yelp.com.
“We strive to keep things simple, and there’s no better way to do that than to make it easy for our patients to share their thoughts about the work we’re doing on the powerful social media website, Yelp.com,” says Dr. Jones.
Dr. Maguire adds: “In this video, we were able to tell our story in words and video images, and I think that’s very helpful to people who may not have had the opportunity to use our services. We simply want people to know that if they need us, we’re here.”

March 2011, Counselor Magazine — Simplicity Urgent Care recently made news in Counselor Magazine regarding the promotional products they created to give to their patients. The marketing savvy doctors had their creative team put the Simplicity logo on lip balm, hand sanitizer, and refrigerator magnets — plus they mailed out brochures and postcards to thousands of residents living in the neighborhoods surrounding the urgent care center.
It helped draw attention. One patient, in fact, came in because a friend had given him a lip balm just days before he came down with the flu. Thanks to the fact that the logo and address were on the lip balm, the gentleman knew exactly where to go for treatment.
The docs give credit to Kelly Jan of CGMarketing, and the New York design firm run by Kelly Makes, for their help in creating these powerful marketing tools.

Simplicity Urgent Care
It always seems to happen at 6 p.m. You left your happy, healthy baby at the daycare center this morning, and now you have a cranky baby with a runny nose, cough, and a fever. Since your pediatrician’s office is closed for the day, you know you can wait until morning to see a doctor, or take your child to the emergency department or urgent care center. But are you overreacting?
Arlington VA, December 7, 2010 — Veteran emergency room doctors John Jones and John Maguire have opened Simplicity Urgent Care, a neighborhood medical center located at 3263 Columbia Pike that allows patients with or without insurance to see a doctor without an appointment.
“Urgent care is for accidents and illnesses that require a doctor’s attention, but not a trip to the emergency room,” explains Dr. Jones, an emergency department physician at INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital, who is certified in both pediatric and adult emergency care. “From colds and flu to minor injuries and urinary tract infections, our physicians will specialize in fast, friendly care. That also includes immunizations, x-rays, drug screenings, travel medicine, and more.”

“Co-founder, Dr. John Jones, says he hopes people will take advantage of the clinic’s services during the upcoming week if their regular doctors are unavailable due to the holiday,” she said.
