About Bayside Urgent Care Center

Welcome to Bayside Urgent Care Center. I’m Richard Wallace. I am a Family Medicine and Sports Medicine Physician. I attended USF right here in Tampa for undergrad followed by four years of medical school at Meharry Medical College in Nashville. In 2000, after graduating from med school, I returned to Clearwater to do my Family Medicine Residency at USF/MPM Family Medicine Residency Program. After residency I completed my Sports Medicine Fellowship at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg in 2004. During my sports med fellowship program in 2003, I would moonlight or take extra shifts at the local urgent care clinics. I realized this was the perfect fit as I really enjoyed the variety and challenges of working in this area of medicine. This has been such a rewarding aspect of life which I have been doing now for over twenty years.

One of the things I realized during this journey is that I absolutely could not have done this on my own. Along the way there have been several individuals who have helped me develop professionally into who I am today. From the teachers, doctors, nurses, medical staff and all my colleagues I have worked with, to all the patients I have had the privilege of taking care of, I have come to realize many things. One is that you never stop learning. Another is that it truly takes a team to deliver extraordinary healthcare.
