ABOUT THE NEW YORK QUEENS MEDICAL CENTER AT AMDLC
Insurances, cash, check and major credit cards accepted. Sliding scale and payment plans available.
Astoria Medical, Dental & LASIK Center (AMDLC), a multipurpose healthcare center located in Astoria, New York, serves the medical, pediatrics, dental, eye care and LASIK needs of residents from the Greater New York metropolitan area including Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island and Long Island all under one roof, while helping to bridge the gap in health services left by hospitals & medical centers in the area that have since closed its doors.
The 10,000-square-foot medical center features state-of-the-art equipment and consists of 16 spacious examination rooms. In addition, the center has a LASIK surgery room, four office suites, three reception/waiting areas, nurses station, triage area and other amenities.
Lending almost a small hospital aura in its layout, our vision in designing this center was one of providing premium quality patient care while utilizing latest medical equipment and healthcare information technology in the most effective manner. And, given the HITECH Act accelerating the adoption of EHR, the Center is in an auspicious position to function in a paperless environment from the outset. Hence, a model "meaningful use" site in action!
The facility fills the gap for the residents' healthcare needs after a number of local hospitals and medical centers shut their doors. Most recently, Peninsula Hospital Center announced it is preparing to shut down. Two other hospitals in Queens — St. John's Queens Hospital in Elmhurst and Mary Immaculate Hospital in Jamaica — closed down as well. Reflecting the diversity of the area, the staff at Astoria Medical, Dental & LASIK Center (AMDLC) speaks a number of languages, including Greek, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali and Arabic.
"We are very proud to offer a wide variety of medical, dental and eye care needs for our patients throughout the Greater New York area in one centralized location," said Irfan Iqbal, President & CEO. The center also provides free car service for LASIK patients in the New York region including Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island and Long Island.
A labor of love in every detail, Astoria Medical, Dental & LASIK Center (AMDLC) is a model for excellent patient care coupled with state-of-the-art medical and healthcare information technology.
