As our name suggests, we are here to offer you an immediate care doctor in Aurora who can treat any number of urgent or emergency conditions. Dr. Fouzia Muhammedkarim, fellow in Family Medicine, believes “Primary care offers care that is personal, ongoing and comprehensive,” and she enjoys taking care of patients of all ages and backgrounds from infancy to seniors. At our practice, you will receive the highest quality medical care. We know that many people may feel anxious about coming to the doctor, so it is our goal to make your visit with us as anxiety free as possible. We view it as our mission to educate our patients about their healthcare options and to help guide them to choose a treatment plan that is most suitable and appropriate for their needs. And we are also dedicated to providing immediate care for those in need.
Our immediate care doctor in Aurora can treat a variety of medical conditions. Additionally, our doctors treat strains, back aches, colds and flu, nausea and more. Allergy injections can be administered. We also provide limited physical therapy including manipulation. Our doctors can treat patients that require laceration repairs for cuts and wound care. We also perform in-office minor surgical procedures. We treat patients who have acute minor illness symptoms such as cough and sinus pain. We will diagnose, educate and prescribe medications as needed. Coughs and sore throats are our most common complaints. A cough can stem from viral or bacterial infections, but also from allergies, asthma, heartburn, medications and many other causes. We will educate you about the reason for the cough, when to use antibiotics, and when another treatment is appropriate. Many of our younger patients develop ear and/or eye infections which we attend to with urgency.
Laboratory services are also provided by our immediate care doctor in Aurora in conjunction with the local hospital of your choice. We will draw the necessary blood, send it to the lab and it will be billed to your insurance company. We perform urinalysis, blood glucose testing and urine pregnancy tests in the office. Diagnostic testing in the office includes pulmonary function analysis, osteoporosis and vascular screening, sigmoidoscopy and electrocardiograms. We also emphasize preventive care to help you and your family stay healthy and active for a long time. So whether you need a family physician for general care or immediate treatment let Prime Immediate and Primary Care provide you with exceptional care.
