THE PRACTICE

About Our Practice

Welcome to First Point Urgent Care

 

At First Point Urgent Care, we focus on delivering the highest quality medical care with compassion.  Medical problems develop unexpectedly and may demand immediate attention. That’s why we’re here to care for life’s little emergencies, when your regular doctors’ offices are closed.  Why spend hours in a hospital waiting room, when you can walk right in and be treated by our experienced and caring medical team?

Our committed team of medical providers offers everything from vaccinations to physicals for the entire family when you need them.

Meet Our Providers
Dr Ryan Luong and Dr Tu Anh Luong grew up in Vietnam, a country of great medical need but of very inadequate and poor quality medical facilities and treatment. They and their family brought their aching and caring hearts and minds to America decades ago, with only $40 to their name, where they studied hard to learn a new language and the medical knowledge to become doctors. They brought the great concern they had for the people of their native country to their adopted country here by putting the needs of those needing medical treatment first and foremost. Both doctors speak fluent English and Vietnamese.
