Urgent Care Doctors in Abaco

After Dorian – Medical Care

St. Thomas Medical Centre – Walk-in-Clinic – Dr. Latesha McIntosh

Dr. Latesha McIntosh has opened a branch of St. Thomas Medical Centre in Marsh Harbour.  It is located in the yellow shopping center next to Agape Family Dentistry.  As you drive toward Marsh Harbour from the airport roundabout, it is probably about 1/2 mile on your right.  She has treated me and some of my family and many of our guests, and everyone gives her great reviews.

The information below is pre-Hurricane Dorian.  The information above is the current information, but this ‘history’ might also be of interest.

I recently had personal experience with 2 Doctors in Marsh Harbour who are on call at all times, and I am happy to share their information here so you can also benefit from their care if needed.

Dr. Latesha McIntosh is an Emergency Medical Specialist.  In February 2012, she opened an office, Abaco Medi Centre, in Marsh Harbour on Queen Elizabeth Drive.   The location is marked on the green map that I send in package with your key.  She is originally from Abaco and chose to return to raise her family here while providing much needed Emergency Medical Care for the island.   In June 2013, I had an accident at Casuarina Point that required emergency attention.  I called her at 8 pm on a Saturday night.  She answered her cell phone and met us at her office.  She gave me a tetanus shot and 8 stitches, and I was back home around 9:15 pm!  You can’t beat that service!   Our daughter-in-law, who is a physician, accompanied me to her office, and after the visit she told me how happy she was that we have Dr. McIntosh in Abaco, and hoped that we would continue to choose her for any urgent care needs.  I think that is a good endorsement.

A week later, when it was time for my stitches to be removed, Dr. McIntosh was away from the island, and Dr. George Charite, Medical Director of Integrated Medical Centre in Marsh Harbour, was taking Dr. McIntosh’s calls.  Dr. Charite removed my stitches and we had a nice conversation about his practice in Abaco.  He told me that he is also on call 24/7 and will meet you for an emergency.  His office is located on the side of Dove Plaza – a two story office building on Don Mckay Blvd.  His phone numbers are:  Office:  (242) 367-1304; and Emergencies (Cell):  (242) 458-1234.

  1. We have been visiting the Abacos for three weeks when my husband developed a high fever. We went to Dr. McIntosh and received excellent, professional service, including compassionate bedside care. We would highly recommend her office for regular and urgent care with no appointment necessary.
