Physicians Immediate Care Jensen Beach History
When longtime walk-in clinic operator Brian Lasseter, MD decided to retire and sell his practice, the former Jensen Beach Walk-I, the opportunity to provide exceptional Jensen Beach and Stuart urgent care and expansion into Martin County presented itself. After a long renovation and remodel process we opened our Jensen Beach location in June 2013 on Jensen Beach Boulevard in the downtown Jensen Beach area. Rich in local culture, we are proud to be part of this unique community. This 3,700 square foot office has seven fully stocked patient rooms ready to treat any injury or illness. Physicians Immediate Care is proud to own and operate the most well established urgent care spot in Jensen Beach.
This office provides numerous services to the Jensen Beach community which include urgent care services, primary care related services and occupational medicine services such as injury treatment, drug screening, alcohol screening, and pre-employment physicals. Diagnostic ultrasound appointments, also available at this location, are by appointment only. We also provide surgical clearance or pre-operative clearance for many area surgeons. The Jensen Beach location, one of three managed by Debi Karam, is staffed with two friendly Patient Service Representatives, two well trained Clinical staff members which includes a Radiologic Technician to perform diagnostic x-rays when requested by our provider. Our Human Resources Director, Benjamin Crespo also has his home base in our Jensen Beach location. Our office is open seven days a week and all staff members are DOT and non-DOT certified drug screen collectors and certified breath alcohol technicians. We strive to offer the best treasure coast urgent care as well as primary care and occupational services.
Physicians Immediate Care Jensen Beach facility is equipped with digital X-Ray. Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. While radiation is inevitable from x-rays, digital x-rays do have far lower levels than those emitted through traditional x-rays. In fact, digital x-rays produce levels of radiation that is 80% lower than traditional x-rays.
Onsite CLIA waived testing is available at our Jensen Beach location. CLIA waived tests are performed by use of a cartridge or dipstick method by our medical assistants. Utilizing CLIA waived testing allows us to give quick diagnosis of things like streptococcal throat infection, urinary tract infection, pregnancy, etc. We also draw blood for more extensive testing, prepare it for transport and send it out by courier to a nationally recognized laboratory.
For our patient’s convenience we offer diagnostic ultrasound by appointment only on designated days. Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. The images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions. Ultrasound is done only by order of a Physicians Immediate Care provider.
