Warding off flu is totally in your power, provided you properly prepare for the challenge. Here are some tips and tricks on how to give your immune system a boost (now is the best time to do it!)  and stay healthy.   1. Getting a Flu Shot in Hialeah Yes, you guessed it. Getting a flu shot is your best chance to avoid getting sick.

Diagnostic procedures available at our Walk In Clinic in Hialeah, Part 2

Last month we introduced you to some of the diagnostic services available at Ritecare Urgent Care. In the previous article, we mentioned EKG, Vital Signs (B/P), X-Rays, PPD and Vaccines. Here are 4 more physical examinations that we perform in our Walk In clinic in Hialeah: 1.  Vision Test Vision screening is used to test various functions of the eye. It is completely painless and may cause only minor discomfort. The most common and easiest test used to check the patient’s eyesight is a visual acuity test. They measure the ability to see details up close and afar. They also measure the power of focusing the eye on those details. Both eyes are tested separately and the test usually consists of reading letters or symbols of various sizes on an eye chart. The test also checks whether the patient has nearsightedness (when the image is formed in front of the retina, not on it) and farsightedness (when the image is formed behind the eye, not on it). Another part of the vision screening is color vision testing that evaluates what is the patient’s capability to distinguish colors. It is often used for the applicants whose job requires them to differentiate colors (e.g. DOT exam). 2.  Hearing Test In our walk in Clinic in Hialeah we also conduct hearing test. They are designed to establish the range of hearing of the patient. The test usually takes no more than 10 minutes. An Audiogram enables the doctor to monitor any changes in the auditory function and helps to detect hearing loss. The test is conducted in a soundproof booth where the...

Ritecare Urgent Care center is a modern and patient-friendly facility where a team of professional staff and physicians work together to ensure patients get the best possible treatment. In our previous article, we listed a wide range of services provided at RiteCare Walk In Medical Center in Hialeah. Today, we would like to focus on different types of diagnostic services available at our center. They include the following: EKG Also known as ECG (‘An electrocardiogram’), EKG is a test done in order to check the patient for any issues/problems with the electrical activity of the heart. The contractions of the heart muscle are caused by the organ’s natural electrical system. If there are any complications or irregularities in the activity of the heart, the EKG test is able to detect them. It can be performed as a precaution, just to make sure that everything is in order, or when the patient experiences any unusual symptoms in the chest area, such as pain or pressure. It is also performed in case of high blood pressure, or cholesterol level. Vital Signs (B/P) Vital signs diagnostics measure the body’s basic functions. That includes body temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate, and blood pressure. Blood pressure is not typically considered a vital sign but also measured during the test. A Vital Signs test is able to detect early warning scores and therefore prevent adverse outcomes.   X – Rays X-Radiation is a diagnostic procedure that allows the doctor to view the inside of the patient’s body without the need to make an incision. It is a popular test performed in many situations and conditions,...
