Have you ever needed to see a doctor right away, but didn’t know
where to turn? Wish you could have easy access to medical care? You can

in Union City. Part of the Washington Hospital Healthcare System, the
clinic offers a wide range of health care services under one roof.
“The Nakamura Clinic is a full-service family medicine facility,”
said Dr. Tam Nguyen, a family physician at the clinic and a member of
the Washington Township Medical Foundation. “We treat injuries and
illness as well as chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. We
also provide preventive care services to keep you healthy.”
Dr. Nguyen has practiced medicine at the Nakamura Clinic since October.
He joined Dr. Steven Zonner, who has been at the clinic since August.
Dr. Nguyen has a concentration in allergies and dermatology while Dr.

roof instead of going to five different doctors,” Dr. Nguyen added.
“Having your care all in one place makes it simple and convenient.”
The Nakamura Clinic can be your regular place for health care, or you can
come to the clinic for urgent situations when you need to see a doctor
