About Us

Opening first week in December, 2018, at the site of the former Bee Gees shoe store in beautiful and historic Imlay City. The site is currently undergoing a total transformation from a 50-year-old retail store into a modern urgent care center. A grand opening will be scheduled soon!

TUC is owned and operated by Dr Jabir Akhtar, a Marlette Regional Hospital family physician for the past seven years. Dr. Akhtar received his medical degree from Grace University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in family medicine at Akron General Medical Center and North East Ohio College of Medicine. Dr. Akhtar is a Board-Certified physician with extensive urgent care and primary care experience. He is also a certified medical examiner for DOT exams.

Dr Akhtar lives in Oakland, MI and works at Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH), so he drives through Imlay City every day and serves many patients from the area in his practice at MRH. He decided to purchase the building and open TUC in Imlay City after speaking with patients and local officials about the need for a more convenient and cost-effective solution for patients. Dr Akhtar said, “I think Imlay City is a great community to serve. I’m very impressed with the sense of community and caring among the many patients I’ve served over the past five years.”

Staffing- there will be a Physician or licensed Physician’s Assistant on site at all times during normal hours. The primary care providers will be assisted by two Medical Assistants.

Services- (we offer urgent and walk-in services. If you need medical attention, please stop in. If your physician is busy and you can’t get an appointment we can see you right away and there is no wait time like an ER. We can see from pediatrics to geriatrics patients)
