HIV and STD Testing
The goal of HIV and STD testing is to assist individuals in assessing their risk and understanding their test results and to help them develop a personalized prevention plan.
Blood Pressure Checks
Nearly half of American adults have high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases your risk for serious health problems, including stroke and heart attack. Get your blood pressure checked regularly starting at age 18 — and do your best to keep track of your blood pressure numbers.
Screenings are tests that look for diseases before you have symptoms. Screening tests can find diseases early, when they're easier to treat. Which tests you need depends on your age, your sex, your family history, and whether you have risk factors for certain diseases.
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
*Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
*Inability to wake or stay awake
*Bluish lips or face
Blood Sugar Testing
Blood sugar testing provides useful information for diabetes management. It can help you monitor the effect of diabetes medications on blood sugar levels, identify blood sugar levels that are high or low, and track your progress in reaching your overall treatment goals. We can teach you how your diet, exercise, illness, and stress affect your blood sugar levels.
A prothrombin time (PT) test measures how long it takes for a clot to form in a blood sample. An INR (international normalized ratio) is a type of calculation based on PT test results. Prothrombin is a protein made by the liver. It is one of several substances known as clotting (coagulation) factors. When you get a cut or other injury that causes bleeding, your clotting factors work together to form a blood clot. Clotting factor levels that are too low can cause you to bleed too much after an injury. Levels that are too high can cause dangerous clots to form in your arteries or veins. A PT/INR test helps find out if your blood is clotting normally. It also checks to see if a medicine that prevents blood clots is working the way it should.
Tuberculosis is not always easy to diagnose. Tuberculosis usually causes infection in the lungs, but not always. Tuberculosis can cause a latent (asymptomatic or quiet) infection or active tuberculosis which will require treatment. We will perform a physical exam and a skin or blood test to see if you may have tuberculosis. Depending on the results, additional tests will be ordered.
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
Urinary tract infections (UTI) are caused by microorganisms — usually bacteria — that enter the urethra and bladder, causing inflammation and infection. Bacteria can also travel up the ureters and infect your kidneys. UTIs may produce some of the following symptoms: Pain in the side or lower back, abdomen or pelvic area, pressure in the lower abdomen, an urgent need to urinate and/or incontinence, painful urination, and blood in the urine. Other symptoms can include the need to urinate at night, abnormal urine color (cloudy urine) and strong or foul-smelling urine. You may also experience, pain during sex, penis pain, fatigue, fever (temperature above 100 degrees Fahrenheit) and chills, vomiting, mental changes or confusion. You should contact a healthcare professional if you develop symptoms of a UTI. Without treatment, UTIs can lead to a sudden and severe kidney infection which can be life-threatening.
Asthma is a long-term disease of the lungs. It causes your airways to get inflamed and narrow, and it makes it hard to breathe. Severe asthma can cause trouble talking or being active. You might hear it called chronic respiratory disease. Some people refer to asthma as "bronchial asthma."
Congestive heart failure (also called heart failure) is a serious condition in which the heart doesn’t pump blood as efficiently as it should. Despite its name, heart failure doesn’t mean that the heart has literally failed or is about to stop working. Rather, it means that the heart muscle has become less able to contract over time or has a mechanical problem that limits its ability to fill with blood.
Flu and Pneumonia
Influenza (flu) is a highly contagious viral infection that is one of the most severe illnesses of the winter season. Influenza is spread easily from person to person, usually when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Pneumonia is a serious infection or inflammation of the lungs.
We Provide Referrals for Dental Care
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a significant relationship between gum disease and other health issues like heart disease and stroke. Many systemic diseases, meaning those involving several organs or the entire body, manifest in the mouth. Good oral health can help prevent future medical problems. We have partnerships with organizations in our community and we can provide referrals to providers to help with these needs.
We Provide Referrals for Vision Care
Regular eye examinations are important. Corrected vision can improve the quality of your daily life. The exam will help detect eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, which could lead to sight loss. Those with poor vision could be at a greater risk for falls. We have partnerships with organizations in our community and we can provide referrals to providers to help with these needs.
When women have access to quality care, it can lead to improved health for children and families. Women have many of the same diseases as men but their symptoms and treatments may not always be identical. At each stage of a woman’s life, there are important preventative health care steps to follow for early detection of medical problems. Many illnesses that affect women can be prevented with proper woman’s care as a priority.
Men are notorious for avoiding the doctor and ignoring unusual symptoms. Most men's health threats are largely preventable. Don’t let complacency take a toll on your health. We can help you monitor your weight, blood pressure, and the level of cholesterol in your blood. Excess weight, high blood pressure, and high blood cholesterol are risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Healthy lifestyle changes, medications, or other treatments can help get your weight, blood pressure, and blood cholesterol under control.
School Physicals/Sports Physicals
Sports physicals and school physicals are required by athletic leagues and schools. These physicals are important since they can alert you to any issues that may interfere with your child’s ability to participate in a sport or may be a indicator future medical issues. Our healthcare providers will review your child’s medical history, check your child’s pulse and blood pressure, perform a vision test and check their joints and flexibility. Your child’s weight and height will be documented as well. These exams can be done at either of our mobile medical clinics or in our walk-in clinic. At the beginning of each school year, during our multiple back-to-school health fairs, we offer these physicals to children free of charge.
We Provide Referrals for Mental Health
Psychological well-being is an important part of our health, productivity, and happiness, as well as the well-being of our communities. There is often a stigma attached to mental health which causes those affected to avoid receiving treatment. Left untreated, mental illness can contribute to many issues such as poor work or school performance, higher medical expenses, fewer employment opportunities and an increased risk of suicide. We have partnerships with other organizations in our community so we can provide referrals to other providers that can assist you with these needs.
Disaster Response Services
Our fully staffed mobile medical clinic can travel to any disaster location in the State of Florida. We can bring licensed medical staff, medications, vaccines and basic supplies where it is needed the most.

Full Service -In-House Laboratory
Premier Mobile Health Services was awarded an innovative program grant to install a Point of Care laboratory in their walk-in clinic by Heart to Heart International and Beckton Dickenson. This grant includes documentation, training, and competency assessments. Premier can now test in-house for RSV, hemoglobin, hemoglobin AIC micro albumin, pregnancy, hepatitis C, HIV, strep, influenza A & B. They can also do lipid panels and urinalysis. This is indeed a game-changer for the uninsured and underinsured patients in Lee County. Having our very own onsite laboratory ensures that we get quick lab results, making the treatment planning process timelier. This means our patients will no longer have to wait for their test results to come back for a second visit.
