Primary Care means taking care of yourself even when you’re healthy.

Routine physicals, screenings, and vaccinations help keep you healthy. You and your primary care provider will talk about your current health risks. You will work together to lower those risks with choices that work for you.

Health screenings, like blood pressure and cholesterol checks, help you and your provider find health issues before they get serious. This means you can get treatment at an early stage.

Our Primary Care services include:

Primary Care also means getting the care you need when you’re sick.

Getting sick is inconvenient. Getting better doesn’t have to be. That’s why we’re here when you need us most.

If you’re not feeling well today, wouldn’t it be great if you could see your doctor today? You can with a same-day sick visit.

Starting at 7:30 AM, call your local Equitas Health Medical Center for a same-day sick visit. Call early! Openings fill up quickly.

24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Speak to a live nurse when you call your local Equitas Health Medical Center outside of normal office hours.

They will let you know if you should go to the ER, an urgent care, or make a follow-up appointment the next morning.
