The flu continues.

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 large numbers of persons with acute influenza, as well as those who had the flu a week or two ago and are now experiencing its complications: sinusitis, bronchitis and even pneumonia.

While most cases of flu this winter have been Influenza A, we have seen an uptick in Influenza B the past two weeks. It’s far too early to declare a new outbreak, but we take note of thefact that the last two years saw a significant outbreak of Influenza B in the spring— after a miserable outbreak of Influenza A midwinter.

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.
