As our name suggests, we are here to offer you a Naperville emergency care center. 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.
Here at our Naperville emergency care center, we can treat a variety of medical conditions. Our doctors can treat patients that require laceration repairs for cuts and wound care. We also perform in-office minor surgical procedures. Skin laceration repair is an important skill in family medicine. Sutures, tissue adhesives, staples, and skin-closure tapes are options in the outpatient setting. We are familiar with various suturing techniques, including simple, running, and half-buried mattress (corner) sutures. Although suturing is the preferred method for laceration repair, tissue adhesives are similar in patient satisfaction, infection rates, and scarring risk in low skin-tension areas and may be more cost-effective. The tissue adhesive hair apposition technique also is effective in repairing scalp lacerations. We emphasis patient education and procedures for appropriate post-suturing care.
Laboratory services are also provided by our Naperville emergency care center 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.
