If you’ve ever gone to a facility that offers medical services, particularly urgent services in what seems to be a storefront or business office your expectations were probably not too high. And maybe your expectations were on target. But probably you didn’t visit Prompt MD.
Not only does Prompt offer top medical care, and they have X-ray equipment and a lab to back up this care. They even do follow-up calls to see how you are responding to the treatment you have received and the prescriptions they have written for you.
PromptMD has been in business in Hoboken since 2009. They opened facilities in Edgewater on Aug. 4 of last year in The Marketplace Shopping Center, 725 River Road Store #27 (located next to Massage Envy). Open Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. No appointment is needed, Prompt Md accepts most insurances and also has a discounted “Self Pay’ $100 for office visit available.
The need for a Prompt MD facility in Edgewater became apparent to Javed Islam, MD, Chief Operating Officer and medical director of Prompt MD because he lives in Fort Lee and he oversees his two Prompt MD facilities in Hoboken. Driving up and down River Road almost daily, he realized that Edgewater was a rapidly growing town and there was no urgent care medical facility in the borough. And so he decided to open a Prompt MD in Edgewater.
The choice was apparently a wise one. “We’re seeing about 100 to 150 patients a month. We expect to eventually see 500 patients a month.”
Being a good neighbor will no doubt plays a part in the projected success of Prompt MD. The Marketplace is directly across River Road from the Avalon apartments, where some 1,000 residents were made homeless in the terrible fire that struck the apartment complex. Dr. Islam came up with unique service he could offer to these unfortunate neighbors. Working with the borough and relief workers he spread the word that Prompt MD would replace and refill prescriptions that had been lost in the fire.
One might say that refilling those prescriptions was a first class thing to do. And that typifies Dr. Islam’s approach to business. “We take pride in the quality we deliver. We are reasonably priced. Most visits are $100.
Prompt MD is staffed with two MDs, a physician’s assistant,with a staff that totals seven. “There’s usually three to four people here at any given time,” Dr. Islam says.
