UCE’s 3 Tiered Physical Exam Program:
Along with our already well-known sports physicals for the student athlete in the family, UCE is now offering one of the most comprehensive and customizable Physical Exam Packages available in the Southwest. No appointment necessary, open 7 days a week from 8am til 9pm, find a location near you.
Urgent Care Extra has broken these down into a three tier program. Our goal is to provide affordable, convenient options with prices being less expensive than what you might find when using your insurance at your family physicians office and well below what you would pay if you have no insurance. Because our goal at UCE is to offer affordable pricing to everyone, we have made a commitment to streamlining our processes in order to offer the lowest price possible! Any where else, lab work alone can range from $150 to several thousand dollars. Urgent Care Extra has an onsite lab, UCE MyLab, which allows us to minimize those third party costs and get results with a much quicker turn around time- generally within 24 hrs. We include blood panels in all of our packages and also offer a wide variety of A La Carte items which may be added to any package.

Additional information on provided tests:
* CBC– Complete Blood Count: This test measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit. It can also provide MCV, MCH, and MCHS as well as platelet count. More information on this can be found at Medline Plus.
* CMP– Comprehensive Metabolic Panel: This is a broad screening tool used to assess organ function. It also is used to check for certain conditions such as liver disease, diabetes and kidney disease. Hypertension can be monitored with the CMP as well as people taking medications for above mentioned diseases. To find out more information on CMP, visit WebMD.
* TSH– Thyroid- Stimulating Hormone: This blood test is used to check the thyroid gland for any problems. TSH allows the thyroid gland to produce two hormones (T3) and (T4). Both of these help control the body’s metabolism. For a more complete understanding of TSH, visit this article Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone.
* UA– Urinalysis: This test is beneficial as it reveals diseases that have gone unnoticed as they do not always produce signs or symptoms, often protein or glucose will begin to show in the urine first. It also is useful in helping to monitor organ function in those with acute or chronic conditions. The results of the UA test go hand in hand with the results of the CMP and CBC and our Urgent Care Extra providers will correlate the results of this test with other clinical findings during your Physical. More information on a Urinalysis can be found at Emedicine.
* EKG– Electrocardiogram: Sometimes referred to as ECG, this is a noninvasive test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. It is completely painless and is performed by applying leads to the chest area. Information about the heart is gained when heart patterns are captures. Many heart conditions can be identified from an EKG. If you would like to learn more about how EKG’s are performed, please visit this article on heart disease.
*HgA1c– (A1c test): This test measures the level of glucose found in the blood and is used to diagnose both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It also provides valuable information on how well your diabetes is being managed. The HgA1c test is the preferred method of testing blood sugar levels as it gives information for the past two to three months by measuring what percentage of hemoglobin is coated with sugar. As your A1c level rises, your risk for developing diabetes increases which indicates your body is not controlling your blood sugar very well. A persons risk for developing diabetes is also captured in the A1c test by identifying a specific range known as “pre-diabetic”. Your Urgent Care Extra provider will go over your results and when possible provide information that will help lower your A1c level if you are in the pre-diabetic range. Things like body weight and exercise play a big part in A1c levels. Urgent Care Extra offers a medical weight loss program to help aide in your weight loss efforts. For more detailed information on the HgA1c test.
*Treadmill Stress Test: This test is used to look for heart disease by determining if there is adequate blow flow to your heart during an increased level of activity. Comfortable clothing including a good walking or running shoes should be worn. Electrodes will be placed on your chest which measure your hearts electrical activity during the test, these electrodes are completely painless. You will begin by walking on the treadmill and the rate of exercise will gradually increase. You will be asked to continue for as long as you can until you feel exhausted. Specifics on how to prepare for the test will be provided to you by the cardiologist prior to your appointment and can include things such as no caffeine 12 hours prior, fasting for a few hours before the test and medications to omit until after the test is complete.
