Big Apple Urgent Care was founded to ensure that the hard-working families of East Flatbush and the greater Brooklyn community have access to the highest quality health care.
As practicing doctors in New York City, we’ve witnessed first hand the disparity in healthcare across neighborhoods. The data shows that Black neighborhoods deal with healthcare disparities across the country. We believe that East Flatbush families should not have to travel outside of their neighborhood to find medical professionals who care and who listen. We built Big Apple Urgent Care to offer a clean, modern, and comfortable space with state-of-the-art medical equipment, where each patient is treated with dignity and respect. Our goal is for Big Apple Urgent Care to serve as a dynamic community wellness center for all East Flatbush and Brooklyn residents.

His extensive experience in the emergency room setting inspired him to co-found Big Apple Urgent Care as a safe, affordable, and effective alternative for non-emergency medical issues. His strong passion for community health and wellness in underserved areas extends beyond the walls of Big Apple Urgent Care, as he firmly believes in educating his patients—especially in preventive care—which patients may not be able to receive in a crowded emergency room setting. From interviews on Haitian radio, to speaking at churches and community events, Mr. Fils shares his medical knowledge—as well as information sessions on small business ownership—with the East Flatbush community. He’s presented at the New Jerusalem Church of the Nazarene, the 67th Precinct Council Meeting, the East Flatbush Village Center, and the Brooklyn Free School. He also participated on Fenimore Street United Methodist Church's Young Kings Rising panel to share some important words on empowerment and the importance of resisting peer pressure.
He earned a Bachelor of Science degree and received a Physician Assistant certificate at Saint John's University in 2010.
Mr. Fils was born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, and immigrated to the United States at the age of 16. He currently lives in New York City with his family.
