Family & Primary Care Q & A

book online

What is primary care?

Primary care is a medical specialty encompassing non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries as well as general preventive care. When you choose a primary care physician for yourself or the members of your family, they get to know you better over time with each visit. This is because you can come to them for anything related to you or your family’s health.

The team at Family Urgent Care provides primary care to families and individuals of all ages. They diagnose and treat a wide range of mild and moderate conditions, help you prevent new conditions with expert preventive care, and can refer you to specialists if you require more focused or intensive care. They can also help you identify and reach specific health-related goals with ongoing care and monitoring. 

Your primary care physician is highly knowledgeable about your health and can answer your questions at each visit. 

What is family care?

Family care is a medical specialty that provides care for patients of all ages, ranging from infants to elderly adults. With family care services, you can receive age-specific care for you and your loved ones without having to book multiple appointments with more than one provider. 

The family care physicians at Family Urgent Care provide treatment for minor acute conditions, chronic disease management, and even preventive care with check-ups and annual exams. 

Which services do primary and family care physicians provide?

At Family Urgent Care, you and your family can schedule primary care and family care visits for:

Physical exams

Physical exams provide a way for you to gain comprehensive information about your health regularly. If you get annual physical exams, you can see how your health changes from year to year, and your physician can find and treat conditions early on in their development. 

The physicians at Family Urgent Care offer affordable school, sports, and camp physicals to evaluate your child’s health and ensure they’re healthy enough to engage in certain physical activities. 

Immunizations

Immunizations are shots to prevent specific diseases by teaching your immune system to fight them when it comes in contact. Your provider helps you understand the schedule of immunizations for yourself. Available immunizations include tuberculosis (TB), tetanus, pneumonia, and the yearly flu vaccine. You can also get immunizations for your children, like the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and varicella (chickenpox) vaccine.

Lab work and imaging

Family Urgent Care provides in-house lab testing and screenings for several conditions and diseases, such as diabetes and high cholesterol, as well as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). They also have an on-site X-ray for accurate diagnoses and treatment planning. 

Sick visits

If you have an acute illness or a minor injury that doesn’t require emergency care, the team can evaluate and treat you during a sick visit. 

Chronic disease management

If you have a chronic condition affecting your day-to-day life, Family Urgent Care helps you manage your condition to ease symptoms and avoid complications with ongoing care. 

When should I schedule a primary care or family care sick visit?

Primary care and family care physicians have the skills to treat minor conditions and injuries affecting various parts of your body. You should book a sick visit if you or your loved one has:

  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Mild to moderate fever
  • Allergies or allergic reaction
  • Asthma (mild or moderate attack)
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Pink eye or other eye infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Abscesses
  • Cuts, scrapes, or bruises
  • Minor burns
  • Small broken bones
  • Sprains and strains


If an injury or illness results in a loss of consciousness, involves a lot of bleeding, or is life- or limb-threatening, you should visit the emergency room for care instead of Family Urgent Care.  

If you need to book primary care or family care services for yourself or a family member, don’t hesitate to call Family Urgent Care, or use the online scheduling tool today.
