This flu epidemic is more severe than usual. It appears that it is starting to ease in the southeastern US, but nationwide, hospitalizations and deaths from complications of the flu are up. Many are feeling the effects of this illness.

The hallmarks of the flu are cough, fever and body aches. If you catch the flu and are otherwise healthy, stay home, get lots of rest drink plenty of fluids, and treat your symptoms. If you have underlying illness such as asthma, diabetes, or a compromised immune system, get to a doctor early. You may be a candidate for antiviral medicine.

Influenza is a serious illness. Protect yourself with a vaccine and if you become ill, protect your classmates, coworkers and loved ones by staying home. The flu is not something you want to share.

Same physicians, same staff, new location.

Emergency Rooms are busy places.

If you have a major medical emergency, the emergency room is the best place for you. However, there are many medical conditions which end up in the ER which can be taken care of more efficiently-- and more appropriately-- in an urgent care center.

UrgentMED is such a facility. Our clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings. We can take care of a wide variety of illnesses, suture lacerations, splint minor fractures and sprains, freeze warts, draw blood, take x-rays, perform sports physicals for athletes, DOT physicals for truck drivers, and even preoperative physicals for those needing surgery-- all without the need to schedule an appointment.

Walk-in medical care for everyone.

Open seven days a week in south Fargo.
