Nick Sadeghi MD, Medical Director of Sahara West Urgent Care, comes from a family of Physicians. He learned and experienced the practice of medicine as a child growing up in New Jersey from his father who is a Neurologist. From his experiences in hospitals and ambulance work in his youth, Dr. Sadeghi developed a passion for medicine and caring for patients.

Dr. Sadeghi earned a BS degree at Tufts University in Massachusetts and a Masters Degree in Biology at Rutgers University in New Jersey before going to Medical School at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School earning his MD degree.

The capabilities of Sahara West Urgent Care as an urgent/acute care facility and primary care treatment center are greatly expanded by Dr. Sadeghi’s 15 years of experience as a Level 1 Trauma and Emergency Physician and his medical practice philosophy which is centered on providing his patients exceptional medical care at the highest standards as well as requiring the same dedication from his staff. Dr. Sadeghi believes that top level care must be provided for patients with acute medical illness or injury with a thorough evaluation and treatment plan. He is a strong patient advocate who believes the role of the physician is not only in the initial treatment of patients but in coordinating their medical care beyond his practice.
