Dr. Kwame Asamoah is a native of California who relocated to the Austin area in 2007. He attended the UCLA School of Medicine where he earned a PhD and his medical degree. While he enjoyed exploring challenging questions through his research, he realized that his passion was in clinical care. He completed his emergency medicine residency at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and then headed south to settle in the Austin area.
As a board certified emergency physician, Dr. Asamoah has worked in numerous emergency departments throughout central and east Texas. After noting a growing trend of minor medical emergencies presenting to the emergency room, he became increasingly aware of the need for more and better options for urgent and acute medical care in the community. Deciding that he wanted to make a greater contribution to this growing need, Dr. Asamoah opened a clinic that focuses on rapid, cost-effective and convenient medical care. In addition to running Express MD Urgent Care, Dr. Asamoah continues working in area emergency rooms.
In his spare time, Dr. Asamoah enjoys exploring the sights and sounds of the city with his wife and 2 daughters. He also enjoys biking, hiking, cooking and reading.
