Medicine & Surgery Facility Information
Arizona Institute of Medicine offers a wide selection of medical services. AIMS is a spacious 31,000 sq. ft. facility that allows for a multi-prong approach to
providing medical care. Our team of health care providers span a variety of disciplines beginning with our AIMS Primary Care providers, with the ability to maintaining our patient’s health through multiple stages of care including preventive care.
AIMS Urgent Care provides medical care to all patients who don’t need to ride an ambulance to the hospital. We treat non-life-threatening illnesses, and injuries. AIMS Urgent Care also treats diabetes and hypertension, allergy and asthma, skin conditions and rashes, respiratory and urinary tract infections, minor cuts, broken bones and sprains, cold and flu symptoms, ear and sinus infections, animal and insect bites, stomach viruses, stomach ulcers and gall bladder problems. You are also welcome for DOT physicals and school physicals, Occupational Heath and intravenous infusions.
The third prong of our healthcare model is the AIMS Surgery Center which has been licensed by Arizona Department of Health services since 1994. The center is credentialed by many Health plans and insurance companies including Medicare, Blue cross and many more. Being the only standalone, physician owned ambulatory Surgical Center in Mohave County which is qualified to performed procedures under general anesthesia, we are able to provide significant savings to both our patients as well as the healthcare plans when compared to other in-patient facilities. At AIMS Surgery Center, we are able to perform Gastroenterological (GI) procedures from colonoscopy and gastroscopy to treatment of hemorrhoids. We perform laparoscopic gallbladder surgery and hernia repairs of all kinds. We also treat breast cancer along with surgery to remove certain skin and soft tissue tumors and cancers. Additional services at the AIMS Surgery Center include interventional Pain Management like epidural steroid injections. podiatry procedures, dental restorations and soon we will be adding plastic and hand surgery procedures.
The Electronic Health Record (EHR) utilized by AIMS has allowed for profound improvement in patient care with a significant reduction in time spent on charting, filing and storing of medical records. We are moving towards a paperless medical center. Our patients can spend more quality time with their physician. We can electronically transmit consultation reports to the referring physicians. We can provide easy access and follow up to our patients which has contributed to better treatment outcomes and patient participation in their healthcare through the Patient Portal. Here patients can communicate medical issues and concerns directly with their onsite Primary Care Provider, schedule their own appointments, make payments, or acquire past medical records.
Our outpatient model ensures a quality of care which has been appreciated by our patients for the last quarter century. In addition to exceptional medical services, our billing team is willing to work with patients who might otherwise be unable to receive necessary care due to financial or insurance limitations. We work hard to get prior authorizations and provide you with prescriptions as required. Despite the state of health care today and all of its uncertainties, AIMS has proven the ability to weather any storm.
