PromptMD Urgent Care Center

PromptMD expands in Hoboken, NJ

Taking the spot that used to house Marma Day Spa at 1122 Washington Street – is another PromptMD Urgent Care Center. Just like the AHS Urgent Care opening downtown, it appears that either residents have no faith in the Hoboken University Medical Center, or are just simply getting sicker. Or both.

Perhaps it has a little to do with the swelling population due to over-development as well. Who knows, maybe all this is necessary just for injured construction workers, and we can go back to nail salons once the city maxes out at 135,000 residents in the next few years?

Congrats to PromptMD for finding a successful business that grows in this lackluster economy!

For PromptMD, first year a success in Hoboken!

4/5/2010 Update:

PromptMD is thrilled to be celebrating our first anniversary at First Street in Hoboken. In the last year, our facility provided over 10,000 patient visits for medical treatment ranging from flu shots and asthma inhalers to broken bones. We have been overwhelmed by the warm welcome and tremendously positive response we have received from our patients. The average wait time was under 30 minutes, so we are pleased to meet our goal of speedy care!

We are learning and growing from our experiences with you. Next fall we are ordering several thousand doses of mercury-free flu shots for all the children, pregnant and nursing moms who requested them. We also provide school and camp physicals –no need to wait for hours at your pediatrician’s office!

In the coming year, we are planning to add new offerings to get even better at taking care of you. From expanded weekend hours and live video chats where you can get instant advice from our team of healthcare experts, to discounts at slow times of the day, we are listening to what you tell us in your feedback surveys at

In 2010, we are committed to keeping our prices low, which has been a boon to the unemployed and uninsured members of our community. A sampling of our low prices includes $24 flu shots and $80 camp physicals.

Located five blocks from the PATH train and open 7 days a week, 363 days of the year, PromptMD is Hoboken’s only urgent care center. No appointments necessary, our hours are 8am-8pm Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm on Saturday and 9am-2pm on Sunday.

First Urgent Care Center opens in Hoboken

Had a chance to meet the doctors this weekend, and they were quite friendly people – something that is often absent in the medical industry! They are also strong supporters of the community, utilizing the services of local businesses for their office needs.

PromptMD, Hoboken’s Premier Urgent Care Center, is opening on March 16, 2009 at 309 First St. We are excited to become an integral partner in providing quality healthcare to the Hoboken community.

PromptMD will be Hoboken’s first Urgent Care center and a medical facility like no other in town. We will be open 7 days a week, with weekday evening hours, and an appointment is never necessary. You and your family can visit PromptMD for most of your common medical needs as they arise and on your schedule. Visit for a list of services and conditions we cover. We have full X-Ray services on site. If your condition is something we cannot cover, we can certainly guide you to the appropriate doctor. We will strive to keep wait times under 30 minutes. Our office is an upscale, yet comfortable facility. It will be open year round including holidays except Christmas and Thanksgiving.

We will work with the business community in providing work place medical services to Hoboken businesses. These services will include employee physicals, drug screenings, and treatment for many on the job injuries. We will soon offer on-site health screenings, flu clinics, and wellness classes. Local business owners will have a medical partner here in Hoboken.

Dr. Javed Islam is a diplomat of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The ability to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions in a short amount of time has led to his great interest in Urgent Care. He completed his Family Medicine Residency at the UMDNJ Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital/St. Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. During his time there, he was the Chief Resident in Family Medicine, and was nominated intern of the year.

Dr. Shekhar Jani is board certified in Emergency Medicine, and practiced emergency medicine at JFK medical center, Edison, NJ, and at Wayne General Hospital, Wayne, NJ. His special interests are in Family and Occupational medicine.

Both of our physicians are board certified.

Hoboken is one of New Jersey’s most vibrant communities. At PromptMD, we look forward to providing you quality medical care when you need it. We plan to provide these much needed services, and also become involved locally.

Please feel free to stop in to learn more. We hope to meet many of you in the coming months.

I went to PromptMD last weekend and was seen by Dr. Islam (the owner). I didn’t have an appointment so there was a little bit of a wait (but I’ve had longer waits for doctors that I did have appointments with). Dr. Islam and his staff were all very kind and helpful. The doctor spent a good deal of time with me for what was a relatively simply issue. Although the office doesn’t accept insurance, it was a painless process to submit the receipt for reimbursement to my insurance company. Dr. Islam also seemed the genuinely care about keeping the cost of the visit down as much as possible. He explained what tests were needed and how much they would cost. I highly recommend PromptMD.

I went to PromptMD on a Sunday about 45 minutes before they closed for the day. I was expecting them to rush through everything since it was nearing closing time, but the entire experience was great. The office is very clean and modern. All of the people were extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Islam saw me and he was excellent–very friendly, knowledgeable and even made recommendations to avoid unnecessary lab charges. I was in and out of the office in about 20 minutes. I usually wait longer to see my regular doctor for scheduled appointments! I have gone to the ER in Hoboken a few times and it was always a horrible experience that would often take several hours. PromptMD was great–friendly, quality care without a long wait!

I had heard a lot of good things about this place so decided to go there for my flu shot. I was in/out in 10 minutes.

The shot was $35 (as others have mentioned, they don’t take insurance other than Medicaid or Medicare, not sure which). I was given paperwork to submit to my insurance company. Hopefully I get reimbursed, but if not, it’s not the end of the world.

The woman I dealt with was extremely nice, organized and professional. She was quick and efficient – something I like as I’m not a big fan of sitting around germ-infested offices waiting to get a flu shot. This place was sparkling clean. Highly recommended.

They also have mercury-free flu shots available.

Tried PromptMD this morning. I’m sold. My GP is in Manhattan, had him for years, like him both personally and professionally. But. I can never get in to see him when I’m actually sick. Last year, I needed a physician’s clearance for ortho surgery after a skiing accident–I had to negotiate with the office to get in, broken knee notwithstanding.

PromptMD rocks. The office and equipment are all brand new. The nurses are extremely cordial and efficient. Dr. Islam is very enthusiastic and thorough in discussing diagnosis and treatment. Medical records are input via tablet PC. The no-insurance model is an interesting approach: it keeps the office overhead down and keeps the base fee (comparatively) low. I’m happy to front the $90.00 fee and file for 50% out-of-network reimbursement; my in-network co-pay is $45.00 anyway. As a 12-year resident currently debating whether Hoboken is the place to remain, PromptMD is a big argument in favor of staying.
