The flu is still with us.

Overall, influenza is on the decline in North Dakota, but a second wave of Influenza B remains with us. In fact, we’re stuck at the second highest level of flu activity in North Dakota.While we’re all glad to see a reduction in cases, the flu is still here and needs to be respected. Avoid sick people, stay hydrated, get plenty of sleep, and ifyou are someone at higher risk for complications from the flu (including those under the age of 2, over 65, have underlying lung disease, diabetes, heart disease, or pregnancy) come in early for consideration of antiviral therapy.

Surely spring and an end to this year’s flu season is coming?

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 economically-- 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, BasicMed physicals for pilots, and even preoperative physicals for those needing surgery-- all without the need to schedule an appointment.

If you need an emergency room, we have two excellent facilities in Fargo. If your medical need fits more appropriately with a walk-in, urgent care facility, UrgentMED is available to you.
