Additional Services

Same Day Care

Should an acute problem arise and you need to be seen that day, we will try to schedule an appointment with your own West Front Primary Care physician or nurse practitioner.

When this is not possible, our Same Day Care practitioner will see you instead. The Same Day Care clinic is open 12:00pm to 8:00pm Monday through Friday and 9:00am to 3:00pm on Saturdays. Appointments are still required. Hours subject to change.

In-Office Lab

West Front Primary Care has partnered with Phreesia to help make your registration and check-in process even easier!

Beginning April 2019 you will be able to complete your pre-registration process privately and conveniently prior to your appointment. Say goodbye to clipboards, paper forms and waiting to check-in!

Osteopathic Manipulation

omt-osteopathic-manipulative-therapy-thumb

Osteopathic manipulative treatment, or OMT, is hands-on care. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, your osteopathic physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.

Who can benefit from OMT?

OMT can help people of all ages and backgrounds. The treatment can be used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain. But it can also help patients with a number of other health problems.

Injured? We Do Sutures and Casting

If you fall off a ladder or take a tumble on your mountain bike, the thought of spending hours (and great expense) in the emergency room is almost worse than the pain. At WFPC, we can handle minor injuries as out-patient care, right here in our office, with the provider you know.

Gynecological Services

WFPC providers offer routine gynecological checkups and related services as part of our family practice emphasis. No need for a specialist.

Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a safer procedure that causes fewer complications than tubal ligation in women.

Although vasectomy can be relatively expensive, it is a one-time cost. The cost of other methods, such as birth control pills or condoms and spermicide, are likely to be greater over time.

Dermatology Procedures

Treatments for acne, pre-cancerous and cancerous skin conditions, suspicious moles, etc. begins here at WFPC, with the familiar provider that knows your full health history.

Free Immunizations for Qualifying Children

Immunizing Your Child Keeps ALL Our Kids Safe

West Front Primary Care is devoted to protecting our community through standardized immunization schedules for all children. Ask our staff about the immunizations that may be available for your child, often subsidized by the state of Michigan or another medical authority.

Travel Medical Consultation

traverse-city-travel-medical-consultation-thumb

Travellers intending to visit a destination in a developing country should consult a travel medicine clinic or medical practitioner before the journey. This consultation should take place at least 4–8 weeks before the journey and preferably earlier if long-term travel or overseas work is planned. However, last-minute travellers can also benefit from a medical consultation, even as late as the day of travel.

The consultation will include information about the most important health risks (including traffic accidents) for the areas of travel, determine the need for any vaccinations and/or antimalarial medication, and identify any other medical items that the traveller may require.
