URENT CARE NOW is an independent provider of urgent care services in Manahawkin, Lanoka Harbor, Toms River and Little Egg Harbor.

Our Beginning

After serving over 10 years as the ER Medical Director at a local hospital, Dr. John Kulin established the first urgent care center in Manahawkin in 2005. Now with 4 locations to serve the Ocean County Community, Dr. Kulin’s guiding principles remain the same – providing the highest level of quality care and putting the patient’s needs first.

Top Reasons Why People Choose Us?



Our clinics are open year round, giving you easy access to care you can trust. Our patients are typically seen and treated in under an hour, without an appointment, making us the ideal provider of the care you need when you need it the most.


We take urgent care a step further, ensuring quality care for higher acuity patients by maintaining a licensed doctor onsite at all times. In addition, Urgent Care Now has been awarded the Certified Urgent Care Center (Category 1) designation from the Urgent Care Association of America, signifying our commitment to the highest level of quality care.


A visit to one of our Urgent Care Centers costs a fraction of a trip to the emergency room or hospital-affiliated urgent care. The lower cost setting we provide results in significant savings to the overall healthcare system, in addition to lower copays, out-of-pocket expenses and self-pay rates for our patients. At our Urgent Care Centers, these savings will never come at the cost of quality care.
