Need to See a Doctor Today? You Can at the Nakamura Clinic

Washington’s Union City Clinic Offers a Wide Range of Health Care Services

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 at the Washington Township Medical Foundation’s Nakamura Clinic 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. Zonner’s concentration is in sports medicine.

“Our different concentrations mean you can keep your care under one 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 right away, he explained. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and walk-in patients are welcome. You don’t have to be a current clinic patient to walk in and receive care without an appointment.

“We always reserve some open appointments so that we can take people who don’t have an appointment but need care right away,” Dr. Nguyen said. “While major injuries and serious emergencies like a heart attack or stroke need to be treated at the hospital, the clinic can meet most of your other health needs. If you’re not sure whether your medical issue can be treated at the clinic, give us a call. We can help you find the right place to get the care you need.”

You can make an appointment or find out if the Nakamura Clinic can meet your medical needs by calling 510.248.1500. The clinic is located at 33077 Alvarado-Niles Rd in Union City.

Quality Care Under One Roof

“Having a regular place of care can be important for maintaining good health,” Dr. Nguyen said. “You can be treated by physicians who know your medical history and can help you stay on top of your health issues.”

You can depend on the Nakamura Clinic for ongoing health needs. The clinic offers a number of preventive services, including vaccinations, health screenings and physical exams. You can also get help keeping chronic conditions like diabetes, asthma and allergies under control as well as treatment for skin conditions like acne and eczema.

“We treat all skin conditions except melanoma skin cancer,” Dr. Nguyen added. “You can get your child’s vaccinations here and we also have a travelers’ clinic where we help you figure out the vaccinations you need if you are traveling internationally. We can provide most of the ones you might need. With some of the more exotic ones, we refer patients to the Public Health Department.”

Most fractures, sprains and lacerations can be treated at the clinic, as well as colds and the flu. So if you injure yourself or get sick, the Nakamura Clinic can provide the care you need right away, and often without an appointment.

“The Nakamura Clinic is really a place where you can get quality care all in one location,” Dr. Nguyen said. “We offer a number of services for your everyday health needs as well as the urgent care you need in an emergency.”
