Why I care?
I’m an ER doc and I take pride in the fact that I am able to help when care is needed the most. My goal is to provide that care in the most personal, comfortable and supportive environment possible. MD Urgent Care allows me do this. We offer the same emergency care services, but in a comfortable, caring environment. When your regular doctor’s office is closed or booked or when you don’t want to be another number in a crowded emergency room, we can see you.

Why I care?
My special interest is “patient experience.” I believe too often that medical practices pay attention to the science of medicine and forget about the art of medicine. I see every patient as a guest in our clinic from the moment they enter our front door until the examining room door closes, when they also then become our patient. My goal is to have MD Urgent Care treat every patient as part of our family. I want a friendly, warm, convenient place for our patients to receive quality medical care and hope we make our patients feel comfortable that they will receive our best care and attention.

Why I care?
My father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in his forties and I have elderly grandparents, so I am always being called upon for medical attention. As an emergency physician, I know I am confident and poised to help others without getting stressed out myself. When somebody calls “Is there a doctor here?,” I always want to assist people in need. Urgent care allows patients the flexibility to always see a doctor and not have to wait exorbitant amounts of time in emergency rooms. It is very similar to my parents calling me at all hours to help them with their medical questions and problems. I really love what I do and it does not feel like work. Every day is a beautiful day. Working in the medical field gives me perspective that life is great and one should live every day to its fullest. I hope and pray that I can help you feel better and more comfortable with your medical needs. It is a privilege to take care of patients and hear their stories. I look forward to meeting you!

Why I care?
I have had the perspective of not only being the health care provider, but also the perspectives of a concerned family member and patient. These perspectives allow me to empathize with different individuals depending on the situation. My goal in every MD Urgent Care visit is to inform patients and family members (when appropriate) of the treatment options in a timely and caring manner. Patient empowerment in healthcare delivery is more than just patient participation; it is understanding the impact of health care in the context of people’s lives.

Why I care?
I care because as an emergency physician working in busy emergency room, I see patients every day who are forced to wait several hours for routine care that could easily be taken care of in minutes. These individuals are put in crowded waiting rooms often with patients that are very sick, exposing them to infections that could have otherwise been prevented. This is what prompted me to start an urgent care facility. MD Urgent Care allows us to provide these people with the same great care they would receive in an emergency room without the extensive delays in treatment or waiting in crowded waiting rooms with exposure to other, potentially sicker people.
