Working in some of New York and New Jersey’s busiest and most underserved hospitals, Dr. Tamara Moise and Physician Assistant Wadson Fils saw a HUGE need for diverse healthcare providers:
“I realized that providing community-focused, personalized care to areas as diverse as East Flatbush is sorely needed,” Dr. Moise told BlackShoppe.
Drs. Moise and Fils recognized the opportunity to help their community and co-founded Big Apple Urgent Care, the first Black-owned Urgent Care Center in Brooklyn!
With the motto “Be Heard. Be Helped. Be Healthy,” Big Apple Urgent Care is a fully accredited urgent care facility that is here for the people!
Even the Deputy Commissioner of New York City Department of Health agrees with their cause:
“Access to a culturally-sensitive, community-based urgent care center is central to enhancing care and services for the brown and black communities of Central Brooklyn and critical to reducing health inequities,” said Dr. Aletha Maybank.
Big Apple Urgent Care is more than ready to handle the needs of its community. Its fully-renovated facility has six exam rooms and state-of-the-art equipment - including an on-site X-ray - and provide drug screening, wellness services, flu shots, lab work, and wound care.
But that’s not it. They also have a diverse, multilingual team that speaks Creole and Medical Spanish! Now, this is the state-of-the-art, community-oriented health care that we deserve!
