In December 2015 NYU Langone marked another milestone in outpatient care: the debut of its first urgent care center, NYU Langone Medhattan Urgent Care. Located at Liberty Street and Trinity Place, the intimate, full-service practice is staffed by four board-certified physicians—three specialists in emergency medicine and one in family medicine—ensuring top-notch acute-care across all specialties.
“Our mission is to help patients navigate their acute medical problems,” says Leslie Miller, MD, the center’s medical director, who has served as an attending physician and administrator at some of the city’s finest emergency departments. “Patients are usually seen within 15 minutes and are on their way in less than an hour. They leave with a care plan, a follow-up appointment, and the assurance that we’re accessible for any questions.” Test results are provided, and critical prescriptions can be filled on-site.
“I’m proud to say that we’ve saved a number of lives in this practice, thanks to the skill and diagnostic acuity of our physicians,” says Dr. Miller.
