Albany Urgent Care: About Our Practice

NewMD & Urgent Care is an Urgent Care clinic located in El Cerrito on the corner of San Pablo Ave and Moeser.  The clinic is led by a team of physicians and medical providers committed to your health and healing.

We embrace cutting-edge technology and utilize state-of-the-art facilities including digital x-ray and lab services to provide the best possible medical care close to home when you need it.

Unfortunately, there are very few emergency room options in the East Bay near Albany. The few options that are available can be expensive and can require long waits.

NewMD’s co-founder, Dr. Ian Ahwah was formerly an emergency room physician at Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo.  When that hospital closed, he and his colleagues opened New MD & Urgent Care in El Cerrito to help fill the gap and provide an urgent care option for people in the El Cerrito/Albany/Berkeley area.

Today, Dr. Ahwah and the medical team provide an option that is often more cost-effective and convenient for many healthcare situations. 

The clinic accepts most PPO insurances and provides services at a much lower cost than can an overtaxed ER.

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!

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.

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!
