It’s tick season.

Not many mosquitos yet, but ticks are out!

Illness caused by ticks is on the rise in the United States and can be serious.

When you are outdoors, take precautions:

Use tick repellant spray.

Tuck your pantlegs into your socks or boots.

Shower after you come in and perform daily tick checks.

If you develop a fever, rash or flu-like symptoms after being in a tick-infested area, seek medical attention promptly.

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, 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.
