School, work, sports, and DOT physical exams are done in the Walk-In. For your convenience, no appointment is necessary for these physical exam requirements.
Walk-In services are for sick or urgent visits only. We are committed to providing our patients with timely medical services for sick or urgent visits whenever the need may arise. Due to this commitment, all complex or chronic medical issues will not be addressed during your visit to the Walk-In. All complex and chronic medical issues will require scheduled follow-up appointments.
Our Walk-In services are not limited to our primary patients. We service all patients in the Walk-In at Dartmouth Medical Center.
Motor Vehicle Accident — Primary Care patients only
Work Injuries — Our office does not provide care for work injuries or workman compensation cases.
Our on-site radiology area allows you the convenience of having your x-rays done while you are here at the office. All of our x-rays are formally read by a Prima CARE radiologist for accuracy and same day results. If further diagnostic testing is needed, our nursing staff will make the necessary arrangements for you.
Our on-site laboratory provides the convenience of having your lab work done while you are here at the office.
Routine Lab Work — Patients have the option of coming in a week or two before a scheduled physical appointment to have routine blood work done. This allows the patient and healthcare provider the opportunity to discuss lab work results at the time of the physical. Appointments are not required for the lab work.
Blood Test and Fasting — If a fasting blood test is ordered, you should not have anything to eat or drink (except water) for at least eight hours. This usually involves an overnight fast. You should continue to take any prescription medications, unless your healthcare provider directed you not to take them.
