GP Consultations

Dr Muwanguzi is a general practitioner that has a wide range of medical and surgical knowledge, which includes focusing on preventive medicine and caring for acute and chronic conditions in patients.

Immigration & Visa Medicals

Typically, the physical exam includes looking at your eyes, ears, nose and throat, extremities, heart, lungs, abdomen, lymph nodes, skin, and external genitalia. The doctor will also order a chest X-ray and blood test to check for syphilis. Children will generally be excused from the X-ray and blood test requirement.

Insurance Medicals

When you’re applying for life insurance, you’re usually required to take a medical exam as part of the underwriting process.

Your medical history and current health status are the biggest determining factors in what health classification you receive, which in turn determines how much you pay for life insurance. Favorable results on the medical exam mean cheaper premiums, so it’s important to be as prepared as possible.

Weight Loss Management

Losing weight is tough for all of us, whether it’s shedding a few kilos or 50. And if in the past you’ve not been able to lose as much as you would like, you may assume there’s little point in trying. But if you lose even a small amount of weight, you’ll reap benefits that will make a big difference in your health.

At Primed Medcentre we assist patients with losing weight in a healthy and sustainable manner.

History tracking of data over a period of time is essential and will provide you with valuable data as far as progress are concerned.

Ear Cleaning

With every attempt of removing excess wax and cleaning the ear, you are putting your hearing at risk. The eardrum and bones of the middle ear are very sensitive and can be damaged very easily. If damaged, a surgery may be required to correct it, while in some cases it could even lead to permanent hearing loss. Your ear needs wax to function properly.

If you feel your ear is clogged up, or you suspect an ear infection or notice excessive wax, pop in for a consultation to have your ear checked and cleaned in a safe manner.

Wound Care and Removal of Stitches

Proper wound care prevents infection and other complications, and also helps speed up the healing process with less scarring. Removing stitches to early on in an unsafe manner can cause infections which could lead to infection, wounds re-opening and scaring. Always have your stitches removed by a medical practitioner.

ECG

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity of your heart at rest. It provides information about your heart rate and rhythm, and shows if there is enlargement of the heart due to high blood pressure (hypertension) or evidence of a previous heart attack (myocardial infarction). In some cases, it can be important to get this test. You should probably have an ECG if you have risk factors for an enlarged heart such as high blood pressure or symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, an irregular heartbeat or heavy heartbeats. You may need the test for screening or occupational requirements, or if you have a personal or family history of heart disease, diabetes or other risks and you want to start exercising.

If you suspect you are having a heart attack, have irregular heartbeats, chest pains, do not delay a doctor’s visit. Have an ECG done ASAP.
