Occupational Health

An annual check-up is your first line of defense against serious health issues. Whether it is for yourself, your family, or employees, the annual physical can save you a great deal of future pain and expense, missed work and missed opportunities. And with Metro Urgent Care, you can do it for a few dollars a year and little or no time lost from work.

Metro Urgent Care is fully equipped to provide for your Occupational and Personal Health needs; anything from sports exams, school or work physicals, or drug exams for your job, insurance, or personal peace of mind are available by appointment or as a walk-in. Employers can help keep their workforce healthy and on the job with regular physical exams or pre-employment exams. This will help reduce sick time and also may have a positive impact on your insurance and keep OSHA at arm’s length. The benefits of instituting an Occupational Health Program are many and varied and our trained staff will be happy to sit down and show you how our inexpensive preventative Occupational Health Program can improve your bottom line.

Metro Urgent Care’s staff has spent considerable time putting together an Occupational Medicine Package with enough flexibility that it will feel like a custom fit for your personal needs. We are dedicated to keeping you and your family and staff working and healthy with convenient options and unbeatable prices.

Metro Urgent Care features both walk-in and scheduled appointments, 7 days a week from 8am ‘til 8pm. There is a Metro Urgent Care location near you, so you or your employees will not be spending time driving long distances for needed tests.

What do we cover? Just about any exam you can imagine that would be included in a typical family, sports, or occupational physical.

Drug Testing

Metro Urgent Care offers a comprehensive 10 panel urine test. This can be ordered as a single test or included in a Physical Exam Program.

Metro Urgent Care’s 3 Tiered Physical Exam Program:

Based on the high demand for our sports physicals for the student athletes, Metro Urgent Care has developed a comprehensive and customizable Physical Exam Package that meets or exceeds standard exam requirements. Metro Urgent Care’s Three Tier Program is an affordable way to cover school, sports, and work physicals at rates that are often more attractive than using insurance at your family physician’s office and even comfortably priced if you have no insurance at all.

Metro Urgent Care has an onsite lab, Metro Urgent Care MyLab, so we avoid all the added costs you would pay at an expensive commercial lab. Not only that, we generally have results within 24 hrs where outside labs may take a week or more to work through their backlog. All our packages include complete blood panels and we offer several add-ons which will round out any special requirements.

Work Injury

Being injured at work is, well, a pain and it is very embarrassing. We can take some of the sting out by helping your employees get back to work through Metro Urgent Care’s Occupational Health Program. When your employees are injured at work, they are not only in pain, but irritated and short of patience. Our Work Injury services can reduce the hassles and red tape for your employees, allowing them to return to work faster and in a better frame of mind. Please visit our Workers Comp Page for more information.

Additional information on provided tests:

  • CBC – Complete Blood Count: measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit; it can provide MCV, MCH, and MCHS and platelet count. For more information, visit Medline Plus.
  • CMP – Comprehensive Metabolic Panel: a broad screening tool used to assess organ function, condition of the liver, kidneys, and diabetic-related illnesses. Also used to monitor hypertension. For more information, visit WebMD.
  • EKG or ECG – Electrocardiogram: a noninvasive test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. The test, which can identify many heart-related problems, uses sensitive receptors on the skin to record heart activities. For more about EKG’s are performed, please read this article on heart disease.
  • TSH – Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone: this test is most often used to identify hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. TSH is produced in the pituitary gland and helps the body maintain stable amounts of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which work to control metabolism. For a more complete understanding of TSH, visit this article Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone.
  • UA – Urinalysis: diseases that do not always produce symptoms or that can progress to a critical stage before symptoms become apparent often show up here. UA also helps monitor organ function. The UA and the results of the CMP and CBC work together to help Metro Urgent Care derive a more complete picture of your health, including some conditions you may not know you have. More information on a Urinalysis can be found at Emedicine.
  • HgA1c – (A1c test): derives the average 30-60-day level of glucose in the blood by examining how much sugar is attached to blood cells. It is used with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This is the key test in determining how well your diabetes is being managed. If you are at risk or have diabetes, this test should be taken every six months until you can maintain a HgA1c level below 6. Metro Urgent Care has trained diabetes specialists who can go over your A1c results and provide nutritional information, medication, and even a medical weight loss program to help control your blood sugar levels. For more detailed information on the HgA1c test.
  • Treadmill Stress Test: looks for heart disease by checking for adequate blood flow to your heart during increased levels of activity. Electronic sensors check the heart rate and blood flow as you walk on a treadmill with a gradual incline increase. Metro Urgent Care’s cardiologist will guide you through the process and help prepare you for the exam.
