Neighborhood Urgent Care is locally owned and is focused on individualized care for our patients in our community.
Neighborhood Urgent Care is very unique given its direct access to top Infectious Diseases and Emergency Medicine physicians and their expertise. It is equipped with an X-Ray machine, ECG machine, I-Stat machine for instant labs, and different panels of rapid testing to ensure accurate and timely diagnosis of patients’ complaints.
It also has a fully equipped infusion suite for intravenous fluids, antibiotics, and vitamin infusions. Our new medical facility provides ample parking, and spacious and well-decorated rooms aimed to provide comfort to our patients.
Dr. Manal Youssef-Bessler is the founding member and is the recipient of the Top Infectious Disease Physician Award for many consecutive years by New Jersey Monthly Magazine, Castle Connolly, Inside Jersey Magazine, Millburn & Short Hills Magazine, and New York Magazine. She is the recipient of the Physician Excellence in Health Care Award from Saint Barnabas Medical Center for her efforts in diagnosing a rare case of Lassa hemorrhagic fever in New Jersey and for her tireless collaboration with the CDC in managing complicated infection control issues with this case.
For cases that are difficult to diagnose and treat, Dr. Bessler’s expertise is routinely requested. Her areas of interests include severe sepsis and septic shock, tick borne disorders, pulmonary and intra-abdominal infections, and fevers of unknown origins. Neighborhood Urgent Care is very proud that two of our physicians have received top awards in their respective fields.
Dr. Lejla Mujic received the Top Emergency Medicine Physician Award by New Jersey Monthly Magazine for several consecutive years, and Dr. Robert Deutsch also received the Top Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physician Award by New Jersey Monthly Magazine for several consecutive years. We are also very proud to announce that the Infectious Disease Center of New Jersey’s Dr. Janet Lin and Dr. Marjut Kokkola-Korpela received the Top Infectious Disease Physicians Award by New Jersey Monthly Magazine for several consecutive years.

Along with the above-mentioned physicians, both practices are well-staffed with excellent physicians, nurse practitioners, and physicians’ assistants who have invested their careers in public health.
