Need for Board Certified Physicians at Urgent Care in Toms River Met
Toms River, NJ – To thank the Toms River community for the warm welcome of Family First Urgent Care to Rands Plaza at 1851 Hooper Avenue, the staff of Board Certified physicians is offering the public free blood pressure and glucose screenings until Labor Day.
“At Family First Urgent Care, you’re family. We want our growing family in Toms River to know we care. Offering these life saving screenings, free of charge, gives the community an idea of what we’re all about,” said Dr. Richard A. Mojares, Medical Director, Family First Urgent Care.
Toms River Mayor Tom Kelaher recently joined Dr. Rich and his wife Michelle for the ribbon cutting ceremony at their second location at the Jersey Shore surrounded by family, friends and their network in the medical community.
It was an especially proud moment for Dr. Rich’s father, Dr. “E” Dennis Edgardo Mojares, Sr. “I started the practice in 1981 in West Long Branch before moving to Oakhurst. My motto has always been to treat every patient like family, like your mother, father, brother, sister, and child. After serving generations of families with this kind of care and attention, the expansion of Family First Urgent Care into Toms River is a dream come true. We believe in bringing back the family doctor feel to the Urgent Care world.”
Both Family First Urgent Care locations, on Route 35 in Oakhurst and Hooper Avenue in Toms River, are owned and operated by Dr. Rich. Services offered cover all non-life threatening health issues, school/sports physicals, flu/strep testing, and injury treatment including sutures and splints. The office offers Worker’s Comp, DOT/CDL/ROTC physicals, and pre-employment and post-accident drug screenings. For added convenience, x-rays are available on site.
Family First Urgent Care is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Most insurances are accepted and self-pay is available. The doctors are affiliated with Monmouth Medical Center and Jersey Shore University Medical Center.
