About Us: Our Founder, Team, and Philosophy
Founder and CEO, Yusuf Khan MD
Dr. Khan, former Assistant Professor at West Virginia University (WVU), completed his Family Medicine Residency at West Virginia University Department of Family Medicine. He also completed an emergency medicine one-year fellowship, and then worked in emergency medicine for three years.
While working in emergency departments, Dr. Khan realized that urgent care centers could help bridge the gap between primary care physicians and emergency rooms. Often urgent care centers can help people faster and more efficiently than busy hospital ERs that are often treating life threatening situations, which often helps to alleviate the crowding of emergency rooms. Dr. Khan previously helped to establish three individual urgent care centers with three separate healthcare entitites, including most recently at WVU. And now, he’s created Act Fast Medical Care! His clinic is based on today’s best practices and his philosophy of passionate patient care with a friendly approach.
As the founding practitioner at Act Fast, Dr. Khan puts his philosophy into action. Just like the local “town doctor,” Dr. Khan and his staff see you as a whole person and will work to become your long-term partner in healthcare.
