Services We Provide
Great Doctor & Staff Very efficent and caring
Except for being 35 minutes late opening, the experience was good.
Dr Ahwah was very good! He listened to me and checked me thoroughly. I highly recommend him. I’m not sure though if he has other regular office other than Urgent Care, otherwise, I will have him as my PCP.
Very quick! I showed up as a walk-in patient right when the Clinic opened. Spent maybe 15 minutes filling paperwork and dealing with insurance. Saw the doctor almost immediately, took him 5 seconds to determine my ailment, sent me off with 3 prescriptions. A couple days later I’m as good as new!
Quick and efficient! Glad to know this option of a quick visit is so close to home and open on weekends
I was treated promptly and keep kindly, when I came in after a bicycling accident. The medication that was prescribed is working. The glued wound continued to bleed at home, so I had to apply a large adhesive strip to stop bleeding on my clothing. I’m trending better. Thanks for your care.
Very helpful staff in & out quickly . Highly recommend for urgent care .
I was already at Concentra and the customer service was so bad I left and drove to NewMD in El Cerrito. I was done before Concentra called me to set up my information for my visit. The staff at NewMD was absolutely wonderful.
The doctor and whole team was awesome. My first time there and my first time to an urgent care facility. Good to know there is a convenient place in my neighborhood that I can get in and out quickly. A quick diagnosis, vitals, medical notes/info, and a prescription …and a CVS in the same mall for the pharmacy!
The staff and doctor were all quite courteous and welcoming. I got a lot of information about my condition from the doctor, who was very thorough and had an excellent “bedside manner.”
visit to your medical service was timely & well done
Dr. Ian Ahwah was great! He knew exactly what was going on with my severe sore throat and prescribed me some meds that took care of the condition. Thank you Dr. Ahwah!
