Jared Schreiner, MD
Medical Director, Mend
Mend delivers convenient, affordable, on-demand urgent health care to your home, office or hotel, for patients ages 1 to 64. They specialize in the treatment of common illnesses and injuries that require prompt evaluation but aren’t serious enough to require a visit to an emergency room. That includes conditions like flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, eye, ear, nose and throat infections, urinary tract infections, sprains, minor broken bones, cuts and skin infections, among others.

What does your business offer that is unique compared to similar businesses?
Mend offers the convenience of on-demand urgent care to the place that is convenient for you, the patient. We’ve found a way to eliminate the uncomfortable waiting room and tiring drive when you simply don’t feel well enough to endure it. And we’ve created a care model that is fully transparent, extremely convenient and very affordable. Mend is unlike any other urgent care service you’ve had before.
What is the most important part of your job on a daily basis?
As medical director, I oversee the care provided in the McKinney/Frisco area. I provide care direction for our physician assistant and nurse practitioner providers and take part in direct patient care as well.
What are your keys to success?
Mend is dedicated to providing convenient, transparent and affordable quality care to our patients. For me, the quality of care provided is the most important part of that agenda. We must deliver high-quality care at all times.
What surprises you most about your job?
I really enjoy meeting with patients in a place most convenient to them and helping them with their urgent care needs where they want to be seen. It’s surprising how grateful patients are to have this convenience offered to them, and that always makes me happy.
Tell us something most people wouldn’t know about your company.
Mend has recently partnered with Children’s Health, which will allow us to deliver the same quality, convenient health care to all ages while partnering with the experience and quality that Children’s Health has come to be known for over the years.
