The First Care Difference

First Care Medical Clinic

Your Community Clinic

First Care Medical Clinic is a comprehensive, walk-in or by-appointment primary care and urgent care medical center, with five North Carolina locations in Monroe, Albemarle, Gastonia, and two offices in Charlotte, as well as a clinic in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Benedict Okwara, MD, opened the first location in 1994 after his experience working in a hospital emergency room convinced him that a well-equipped outpatient clinic could provide patients with better outcomes at a lower cost.

In the more than 20 years since, First Care Medical Clinic has grown to six locations which accommodate 35,000 patient visits per year. At First Care Medical Clinic, adults and children of all ages, genders, and backgrounds get the individualized care they need and deserve. The highly-skilled, experienced, and compassionate physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and medical staff are dedicated to making every patient who walks through the door feel comfortable, understood, and well-attended. Each clinic provides a comprehensive range of services, including pediatric care, primary care, and women’s health care.
