Our Story

Noord Medical Center

Dr. Carlos Yagua Sr and his wife Dr. Noris Velasquez have had a successful family practice on the island for almost 30 years. Their four children, all trained and experienced general physicians, created the walk-in center in 2013 as an alternative to the crowded ER, therefore delivering quick, reliable, and efficient solutions for any clinical challenge, big or small. 

They are dedicated to patient satisfaction and providing evidence based quality care, so that you can live life and vacations uninterrupted.


We’re open evenings and weekends, no appointment needed. From flu shots and lab tests to x-rays and worker exams, get the care you need on your schedule.


For a fraction of the cost of a trip to the emergency room, our physicians and healthcare professionals address urgent matters, including sprains, broken bones, and more.


You’ll enjoy short wait times, in-network physicians, and clean facilities.

You are in control of your care.
