Check Your Heart With Cardiovascular Health Screenings
During a cardiovascular health screening, Total Point Urgent Care’s medical specialists identify problems in a patient’s major arteries before symptoms appear. These screenings reduce a patient’s risk of stroke, heart attack, heart disease, aneurysm, and other severe conditions. Checking your aorta for an aneurysm is a common cardiovascular screening, but this medical service may include a wide array of other steps. We want to ensure your heart and blood vessels are in adequate condition to keep your blood pumping efficiently to deliver oxygen and other essential elements throughout your body. Besides measuring your blood pressure, a primary care physician may run the following tests to verify your cardiovascular health:
- Stress Test
- Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
- Holter Monitoring
- Cardiac Catheterization
- Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Diabetes Screenings for Better Health
Type 2 diabetes is a common health condition many people develop during their lifetimes. The causes can be lifestyle or diet-related, but genetics and certain medications can also increase a person’s chance of developing it. At Total Point Urgent Care, our primary care doctors can screen you for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes involves an elevated A1C reading, indicating you’re at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. You can reverse prediabetes with lifestyle changes, exercise, dietary changes, and other steps, but developing type 2 diabetes is irreversible. We can help you manage diabetes to ensure you maintain your health and carry on your daily life. Our doctors may use any of the following tests during a diabetes screening:
- Fasting Blood Sugar Test
- Glucose Screening Test
- A1C Test
- Glucose Tolerance Test
- Random Blood Sugar Test
Immunizations for All Ages
Immunizations are a medically necessary treatment for patients at various stages in their lives to protect them against a wide array of illnesses and diseases. Total Point Urgent Care can provide children and adults with age-appropriate vaccinations for many reasons. You might be traveling to a foreign country with different health risks than where you live, or your age might put you at risk of developing issues like shingles. Society also requires medical protection from a broad range of diseases people can contract and put their health or livelihood at risk without proper immunizations. You can get vaccinations for various illnesses, including the following:
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella
- Chickenpox (Varicella)
- Polio, Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTP)
- Influenza (Flu Shots)
- Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
Suturing Wounds & Other Minor Surgical Procedures
Many surgical procedures require an operating room, significant anesthesia, and surgeons specializing in a particular area of medicine. However, Total Point Urgent Care can perform some procedures as part of your in-office primary care treatment. We can suture or stitch wounds if you get a cut or gash, remove moles and other dermal issues, and even clean out certain infections. Your primary care physician will advise you on the best medical treatment option when you visit us to get professional care.
Birth Control Services
Medical care providers can recommend many types of birth control options to prevent pregnancy while you’re sexually active. Two low-maintenance options are an intrauterine device (IUD) and a birth control implant. You can also get a birth control shot, birth control patch, vaginal ring, or birth control pills. Condoms, diaphragms, sponges, cervical caps, and spermicide can prevent conception during intercourse. Our primary care doctors can advise you on which options fit your unique needs and preferences. We can also help with fertility awareness and discuss vasectomies with men. Birth control helps with periods and helps prevent STDs.
Casting, Splinting, & Bracing
Broken bones and torn, sprained, or strained tendons and ligaments can happen to anyone from various causes. Children can hurt themselves while playing at the park, participating in sports, or suffering a household accident. Adults also face exposure to a wide array of potential threats at work, school, or home. Total Point Urgent Care offers caring, professional medical care whenever you need a brace, splint, or cast to restrict movement and protect your injury or misalignment while it heals or corrects itself. Whether you visit us for primary or urgent care, your comfort and welfare are our top concerns. If you need X-rays, we can organize the process to get a clear view of your internal structure to identify possible breaks.

Total Point Urgent Care’s primary care physicians can review your medical records and current health, listen to your concerns and goals, and provide sound guidance to improve or maintain your health and wellness.

Seasonal Allergy Treatment
Allergies are an unfortunate part of life for many people. You might have allergies to food, metals, latex, bee stings, and various other possible culprits. Seasonal allergies are an ongoing struggle you might face every time the flowers and trees bloom or you’re stuck in a house full of irritants. At Total Point Urgent Care, we can collaborate with you to determine your seasonal allergies’ severity and determine the best medications and strategies to lessen or eliminate symptoms. Your treatment may involve prescription drugs, injections, and changes to your daily or seasonal routines and activities to limit your risk of exposure to triggering elements.
Telecare Through Virtual Visits
Telecare or virtual visits let you see a medical care professional online using video chat on your computer or smart device. While virtual visits might seem impersonal and limit the care you receive, doctors and staff can provide comprehensive care and advice over video chat for routine medical appointments and some urgent care situations. Total Point Urgent Care will have telecare soon to help our patients in remote locations like their homes, offices, and other locations with an internet connection. Virtual visits can be less stressful for patients, and doctors can assess their symptoms of illnesses like COVID-19, prescribe treatments, and refill medications. Overall, you get the same medical treatment as you’d receive at our office, except you conduct the entire visit over your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
