The company has over one million patient visits per year and operates more than 70 locations in New York, New Jersey and Washington State with a growing team of over 300 medical professionals.

The company's unwavering commitment to treating everyone with respect and genuine kindness while offering exceptional services and a cost-effective alternative to the ER, has enabled CityMD to grow from one Manhattan practice to more than 70 locations in the greater New York Metro Area and Seattle, Washington. To date, CityMD has treated over 5 million patients.
