About Physicians Now Urgent Care
Physicians Now is a Rockville MD urgent care clinic offering convenient, affordable medical care to children and adults. Dr. Chinedum Olisemeka, a board-certified emergency medicine physician, opened Physicians Now to address the problem of overcrowded emergency rooms and a lack of access to medical care. Emergency room crowding increases healthcare costs and leads to longer wait times for everyone. Without access to regular medical care, minor injuries and illnesses can lead to serious complications. Physicians Now has been providing high-quality medical care since 2009.

Convenient Access to Care
Physicians Now is the only local urgent care center that performs pre-operative examinations within one hour, administers intravenous (IV) medications and fluids, and treats very sick patients instead of referring them to an emergency room. We are also the only urgent care center in the area with a board-certified emergency medicine physician on staff.
We provide urgent care services to people of all ages. Our experienced medical professionals are also available to help you manage chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease when you cannot visit a primary care doctor.

Physicians Now also provides occupational health services to small and medium-sized businesses. Having these services done at an urgent care center instead of a hospital saves employers time and money.

The staff members at Physicians Now are committed to providing timely, cost-effective care to patients of all ages. We also offer affordable medical care regardless of whether you have health insurance. Because our urgent care center is open seven days per week, we’ll be here when you need us.
