Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care addresses most of your health care needs as you age. Unlike internal medicine, which focuses on adults, primary care includes people of all ages. Tru-Health Urgent Care works with patients from infancy through adulthood. The team can care for your whole family, eliminating the need to travel to different facilities for comprehensive health care.

What does primary care include?

Tru-Health Urgent Care offers a wide range of primary care services, including:

Physical exams

A physical exam is a comprehensive evaluation that assesses your overall health. The exam includes a complete medical history review and a physical screening. The team recommends visiting for a physical exam once a year to protect your health and prevent complications.

DOT physicals

All Department of Transportation (DOT) employees must undergo a comprehensive physical exam to operate a commercial vehicle. 

Wellness exams

Wellness exams are similar to physicals, but they’re less all-encompassing. These annual screenings focus on your overall well-being, particularly your diet, lifestyle, and other factors you can control. While Medicare does not cover physicals, they do cover annual wellness exams.

On-site testing

The clinic offers a wide range of on-site testing, including blood work, glucose testing, sexually transmitted disease (STD) tests, COVID testing, and drug and alcohol screenings.

Chronic disease management

If you have a chronic disease, like diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), or arthritis, the team can help manage your condition to minimize complications. Your provider creates an individualized care plan to address your specific needs.

Mental health care

Tru-Health Urgent Care provides high-quality support and guidance for individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other common mental health conditions.

Sick care

The team offers walk-in appointments for acute illnesses and injuries, including fever, sore throat, and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
