The flu goes on (and on).

Overall cases of flu are finally declining in North Dakota, though the level of activity in the state is still considered widespread. At UrgentMED, we continue to see patients with acute influenza, as well as its complications: sinusitis, bronchitis and pneumonia.

While most of the flu this winter has been Influenza A, the past three weeks have seen an increase in Influenza B cases. 2016 and 2017 saw significant numbers of Influenza B cases in the spring— after a miserable outbreak of Influenza A midwinter— and it’s possible this year may be the same. Which means, if you haven’t yet this season, it’s still not too late to get a flu shot.

Stay tuned and stay well.

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.
