How Two Medical Professionals Set Up First Black-Owned Emergency Health Centre in Brooklyn

The proverb ‘ two heads are better than one’ is evident in the great feat achived by two Emergency room medical professionals in Brooklyn, Dr. Tarama Moise and Physician Assistant, Wadson Fils who co-founded Big Apple Urgent Care, the first Urgent Care Center in Brooklyn to be Black-owned.

This was their own way of provide healthcare alternatives in underserved comunities.

In a report by ShoppeBlack, Dr. Moise talked about her experience as an ER physician who treated many patients with non-emergency issues. However, as a result of the lack of diverse healthcare providers in their area, the patients are often times rushed to her emergency room.

“I realized that providing community-focused, personalized care to areas as diverse as East Flatbush is sorely needed,” Dr. Moise told the outlet. She continued, “I am the daughter of Haitian immigrants, and I understand that having a doctor who looks like you and understands your culture makes the experience more comfortable.”

Big Apple Urgent Care is manned by an intermix of medical professionals with the ability to speak Spanish and Creole. The Big Apple Urgent Care centre has six examination rooms with latest state of the art equipment, their ultimate goal is to provide their patients with relevant experience.

The healthcare centre is located at 3805 Church Avenue.
