Our multidisciplinary medical team at Safe Care Express Urgent Care offers a multitude of services, including lab testing, EKG, diabetes treatment, hypertension checkups, annual physicals, sports and school physicals, minor illness, and injury treatment, and much more!

What is a Primary Care Clinic?


Primary care clinics are integrated, accessible health care service clinics run by physicians who are accountable for addressing a large majority of personal health care needs, developing healthy relationships with patients, and practicing in the context of family and community.

Primary care clinics focus on wellness and prevention to help keep patients healthy and free of disease as well as offer acute healthcare for patients with issues in regards to injuries or illness.

Primary care physicians monitor their patient’s conditions through regular annual checkups and track changes in their health to offer recommendations to specialists if need be.

Is an internist the same as a primary care doctor?


Primary care physicians are available to their patients who need them based on the ability to treat a wide variety of health issues including prevention and maintenance. If a condition is beyond their scope of healthcare, they may refer the patient to a specialist.

An internist or internal medicine doctor is a doctor who focuses on treating adults only. As a family doctor, an internist treats most common medical issues from sprains to strains to even diabetes. Again, like a primary care physician, if the condition you are suffering from is beyond their scope of healthcare, they may refer you to a specialist.

Can I go to a primary care clinic for minor surgery?


At Safe Care Express Urgent Care, we offer more than just primary care services like checkups. At our clinic, our physicians have the ability to perform minor surgeries. The following are some surgical procedures we can perform at our clinic based on appointment availability:
