My daughter was diagnosed with the flu, and no pharmacy seemed to have the medicine she needed. The staff called around until they found a pharmacy with Tamiflu. Thank you so much!!! I really really appreciate the extra mile and will recommend Paramount to all my friends.

FROM OUR BLOG
There is a lot that your doctor can learn about your health through physical exams and tests. However, having a clear understanding of the symptoms that you’re experiencing can help him make an accurate diagnosis. If you’re planning to visit anurgent care center for treatment, then read on for tips on communicating your symptoms to your doctor.
Understandably, many people feel hesitant when it comes to speaking about their health and symptoms, even when speaking with a medical professional. However, to help your doctor help you get better, you should try to describe your symptoms clearly and openly. Also, remember that your wellness is the priority in these situations and that your doctor’s focus is to improve your health.
If you’re like many individuals, then you may scour the internet to learn about your symptoms and what they might mean before visiting a doctor. However, trying to use medical jargon may make it more difficult for you to describe your symptoms accurately. While it’s important to be knowledgeable about your health, you can help your urgent care doctor help you by describing your symptoms in your own words. To make this process easier, consider writing down the symptoms that you’ve been experiencing, as well as what activities or circumstances seem to trigger them.
How pain is felt can vary greatly between individuals, and your doctor can’t see what painful symptoms you’re experiencing. Because of this, many medical professionals encourage patients to describe what they are feeling using a pain scale. This scale typically involves the numbers 1 through 10, with 1 correlating with no pain and 10 representing the worst pain the patient has experienced or can imagine. When visiting your doctor, be prepared to rate your pain using numbers like these to help ensure an accurate diagnosis.

Swimming is an excellent way to cool off while working out, but be mindful of the potential risks. Require your kids to follow certain safety rules, including rules against running near the pool and using riding toys like tricycles in the area. Let your kids know that electrical appliances and water can be a deadly combination. Additionally, urgent care physicians warn against diving into shallow pools. Tell your kids that the only diving allowed is off the diving board.
Kids need adult supervision at all times near the pool. A supervising adult should be careful not to be distracted by conversations or a book while on lifeguard duty. Supervising adults must also avoid alcohol. Adults shouldn’t swim alone, either. It’s safer to use the buddy system. When the pool isn’t in use, set the pool alarm and lock the security gate.
Health is a major concern for most commercial truck drivers, and this isn’t just because they are required to passDOT physicals. The long hours of sitting relatively still, poor nutrition while on the road, and the stress of ensuring timely arrivals can significantly increase the risk of life-threatening conditions like heart disease and diabetes. It’s a challenge to stay healthy on the road, but it’s definitely possible if you’re committed to making some changes.
Driving a truck for hours on end can be boring, and many drivers compensate with mindless eating. Keep the potato chips out of reach when you’re behind the wheel. Instead, head for a rest stop for each meal. Look for a supermarket near the exit, which offers more nutritious possibilities than gas stations and fast food restaurants. Supermarkets often sell premade sandwiches and salads at the deli. Look for fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits, or select somewhole fruit to stash in your cab. If you must eat fast food, check the menu for calorie counts first.
Some drivers stash a foldable bicycle in the sleeping berth. At rest stops, they can ride around the parking lot to work their leg muscles. You could also simply walk or jog around. Consider wearing a pedometer to track your steps to help you stay motivated. If you bring hand weights, make sure they’re tied down securely in the cab.
Preventing Blood Clots
Even if you do exercise regularly, you’re still at risk of blood clots. Blood clots can form in the legs from long hours of inactivity. They can be deadly if they break free and travel to the heart, lungs, or brain. Reduce your risk by taking frequent rest stops to walk around. Limit sodium, drink lots of water, and when you can’t walk around, flex your calf muscles frequently.
