What do Maine, Michigan, and Oklahoma have in common with North Dakota? We’re all part of a handful of states still seeing significant cases of the flu. In fact, the North Dakota Department of Health is reporting more flu cases this season than ever before.
The Influenza A epidemic that plagued us earlier in the season has eased. Unfortunately, in recent days we’ve been seeing an Influenza B illness. This is a different strain and has not by any means reached epidemic proportions, but many are feeling the effects of this illness.
Influenza can be serious. If you have underlying asthma, diabetes, or other chronic medical problems and do become ill, you may benefit from anti-viral medication— get to a doctor early. Otherwise, stay home, treat the fever, drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest. Don’t fool with the flu.
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.
