Chest pain is a common symptom that can arise from various causes, ranging from mild to serious conditions. At PrimeCare Urgent Care, our experienced medical team is dedicated to evaluating and managing chest pain promptly and effectively.

Causes and Evaluation

Chest pain can originate from conditions affecting the heart, lungs, digestive system, muscles, or ribs. When you visit PrimeCare Urgent Care with chest pain, our healthcare providers will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the possible causes. This may involve reviewing your medical history, performing a physical examination, and utilizing or referring for diagnostic tools such as:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): This test records the electrical activity of your heart and can help detect abnormalities that may indicate heart-related issues.
  • Chest X-ray: Provides images of the structures inside your chest to assess for lung conditions or injuries.
  • Blood Tests: To check for markers of heart attack or other conditions affecting the heart.
  • Physical Examination: Including listening to your heart and lungs, checking for signs of inflammation or injury.
