General Medical Care

Metro Urgent Medical Care is available on a walk-in or appointment basis for your primary healthcare needs when your PCP is temporarily unavailable. For your convenience, we provide routine immunizations and complete physical examinations including audiograms, electrocardiograms, laboratory services, hearing and vision testing and X-rays, all on-site! We can also help you locate a PCP in your local area as well.

We routinely treat common colds, diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, respiratory disorders, musculoskeletal conditions, acute and chronic injuries and illnesses such as trauma and arthritis.

How can vaccinations help protect me?

The diseases that vaccines prevent can be dangerous, or even deadly. Vaccines reduce the risk of infection by working with the body’s natural defenses to help it safely develop immunity to disease.

When germs, such as bacteria or viruses, invade the body, they attack and multiply. This invasion is called an infection, and the infection is what causes illness. The immune system then has to fight the infection. Once it fights off the infection, the body is left with a supply of cells that help recognize and fight that disease in the future.

Vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection, but this “imitation” infection does not cause illness. It does, however, cause the immune system to develop the same response as it does to a real infection so the body can recognize and fight the vaccine-preventable disease in the future. Sometimes, after getting a vaccine, the imitation infection can cause minor symptoms, such as fever. Such minor symptoms are normal and should be expected as the body builds immunity.
