Urgent Care Center in Rockville MD revamps its purpose to give patients access to compassionate care at affordable prices.

With the increased focus on health care sweeping the country, patients are becoming more aware of their right to service from medical practitioners. For Physicians Now Urgent Care Center, this led to the creation of the new mission to provide urgent and acute care that tackles the problem of crowded emergency rooms and long wait times head-on. Entitled “You Matter, We Care” this approach enables patients in the Rockville MD area to access the timely, cost-effective medical care they need 7 days a week, regardless of their insurance status.

“We are currently the only urgent care center in the area with a board-certified emergency medicine physician in attendance,” says Keke Olisemeka, Chief Patient Advocate and co-founder of the center. “Here at Physicians Now, we make sure patients can see us without an appointment when they need to, and enjoy lower costs than they would face if they went to the ER.”

The walk-in clinic offers a comprehensive range of medical services, which patients can view on the practice’s new website at These include preventive services such as vaccinations, travel medicine, physical examinations and weight management, as well as acute care for chronic conditions, injuries, sudden onset of illness and motor vehicle accidents.

The website provides details of common medical conditions to help patients determine whether an urgent visit to the center is needed. A patient portal gives online access to records and appointment times, and full information is available about how to register as a new patient or set up an appointment if patients don’t want to simply walk in.

“The medical team headed by Dr. Chinedum Olisemeka prides itself on providing compassionate service,” says Keke. “We want our patients to know that they matter to us, that we care about their wellbeing, and to feel comfortable from the moment they walk into our medical office.”

The center also provides occupational health services for businesses in the region, which saves local employers both time and money compared with using hospital services. From treating work-related injuries through drug screening and pre-employment physicals, Physicians Now is quickly becoming the medical service provider of choice to Rockville companies.

“Don’t wait to get the care you need,” says Keke. “We’re here 7 days a week to help you, and our new website gives a full list of everything we have to offer.”

Centrally-located in Rockville MD, Physicians Now serves surrounding areas ranging from Darnestown to Potomac. The facility combines the highest of technical standards with the human touch its physicians and team are well-known for in the area.
