The new Bound Brook office of Doctors Express (www.doctorsexpress.com), an exciting new concept in urgent medical care, held its Grand Opening on Wednesday, December 12, from 11:30AM to 3:30PM.  With the opening of the new office, residents of Central New Jersey will now have access to urgent medical care 365 days a year without having to wait for an appointment or visit a crowded, busy hospital emergency room.

            “It’s always a pleasure to welcome high quality businesses like Doctors Express to Bound Brook,” said Mayor Carey Pilato.  “As a father of two young children, I am especially grateful for this opportunity,” he added with a smile.

            “Doctors Express is a great addition to our diverse business community,” agreed Bound Brook Councilman J.P. Levin.  “With its excellent location, it will be a fine complement to other merchants already serving the town.”

            The reach of Doctors Express will extend beyond Bound Brook.  “It definitely fills a void in the community and will an excellent partner in promoting the growth of Somerset County,” said Jerri May-Grimes, owner of My I Destinations travel and an Ambassador with the Somerset County Business Partnership. 

            “Our concept is to provide quality medical care right in your own neighborhood when you need it the most,” said Mark Zenz, Operator of the new Bound Brook office.  “If you need urgent care on a weekend or after your family physician’s normal office hours, or if you are unable to get an immediate appointment, you can walk right in and be seen and treated right away.  As you can see, we have a fully equipped onsite laboratory and X-ray facilities and will be staffed 365 days a year by highly trained medical doctors along with medical assistants and technicians.”

            Mayor Pilato officially declared December 12, 2102, “Doctors Express Day in Bound Brook” as he presented Zenz with a plaque welcoming the facility.  “Mark took a risk in coming here, but we really believe that the risk will pay off.  This is definitely an improvement over Hollywood Tan, which previously occupied the space,” he noted. 

            “This is a really beautiful, state of the art facility,” agreed Albert Saad, a visitor who attended the Grand Opening.  “I have no doubt that it will exceed expectations.”

            It has already begun to do just that according to Dr. Jennie Malone, Lead Physician and a National Honor Society graduate of Bound Brook High School who received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, VA and is Board Certified in Family Medicine.  “We won’t be officially open to treat patients until tomorrow, but we have already seen two patients,” she said.

            The formal Ribbon Cutting was held at 12:30PM.  Residents of Central New Jersey are invited to tour the new facility and meet Dr. Malone.  Tours will continue to be offered throughout the week, with participants eligible to win a drawing for an iPad to be held on Wednesday, December 19. 

            Doctors Express will accept most medical insurance, including Medicare.  “Even if you have no insurance, our rates are reasonable and we will work with you to minimize the costs to the patients,” says Zenz.  “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for patients to take advantage of the services we offer whenever they need them.  We want patients to Get In, Get Out, and Get Better”

            For more information, contact Mark Zenz at (732) 469-3627 or e-mail him at mzenz@doctorsexpress.com.

Why People Should Visit Black Churches and Black People Should Welcome Them

March 29, 2018

Dear TAPInto New Brunswick,

In New Jersey, segregation is a cultural issue that demands the immediate attention of Christians. Nearly 87 percent of Christian churches in the U.S. are either made up of only white, or only African-American parishioners. When we worship in the comfortable bubble of segregation, we miss the opportunity for racial reconciliation, as mandated by Jesus:
