Adult Vaccines

Unlike many offices, Medical Care prides itself in offering a wide variety of adult vaccines.

Childhood Vaccines

We offer all available childhood vaccines. We participate in TN Vaccines for Children and register children using the state database.

Ear Lavage

Some people have ear canals that are smaller than average or shaped in a way that makes it difficult for the naturally occurring wax to get out of the canal causing wax impactions. Blockage, or impaction, also occurs when the wax gets pushed deep within the ear canal. Earwax blockage affects about 6% of people and is one of the most common ear problems doctors see. An ear lavage uses warmed water, sodium bicarbonate, or other prescription-strength eardrops to gently clean out the ear canal.

Mono Test

Our Mononucleosis (Mono) tests will let us know results within 5 minutes of testing.

Physicals

Physicians investigate the patient for any signs and symptoms of diseases or sickness. Physicals routinely involve blood pressure checks, height and weight checks, or any other test the physician finds necessary to help determine a correct diagnosis and treatment of any problems found. A routine physical is recommended at least once a year to help prevent serious illness.

Rapid Flu Test

Our rapid Influenza (Flu) tests will let us know results within 10 minutes of testing.

Rapid Strep Test

Our rapid Streptococcal Pharyngitis (Strep) tests will let us know results within 5 minutes of testing.

Urinalysis

A urinalysis is an analysis of the urine. A sample of urine will be taken and be analyzed for any irregularities.
