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.

If you’re at least 20 years old, it’s a good idea to have a cholesterol screening during your physical exam. Doctors generally recommend that adults have this screening test every five years. Understanding your cholesterol levels is the first step toward managing them effectively. When you watch this video, you’ll hear about the basics of cholesterol management.
It covers nutritional topics, such as increasing your intake of fiber-rich vegetables, and eating nuts to get healthy fats. Exercise is also crucial for cholesterol management, as it helps raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol. For many people, lifestyle changes are sufficient, but some may be prescribed cholesterol management medications to use in addition to a healthy lifestyle.
High-quality family medicine services are available at the walk-in clinics of Paramount Urgent Care. For more information, please visitwww.paramounturgentcare.com.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is much more treatable than it used to be, but getting early treatment for this life-threatening disease requires an accurate, timely diagnosis. HIV testing is a sensitive issue, and many people feel a little awkward about getting tested. However, when you visit awalk-in clinic, you can rest assured that your personal information will be kept in strict confidence.
Am I at risk of HIV infection?
This is a good question to discuss with your doctor during a physical exam. If you’re at risk of getting HIV, your doctor will let you know how often you should get tested. Some of these risk factors include:
- A history of multiple sexual partners
- Sexual intercourse between two men
- A history of other STDs
- A history of hepatitis or tuberculosis
- Injected drug use and sharing of drug paraphernalia
- Sexual intercourse with someone who has any risk factors
- Sexual intercourse with someone whose medical history is unknown
- Sexual assault
I’m not at a higher risk. Should I still get tested?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urges everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 to have at least one confidential HIV test at some point during their lifetime, as roughly one in seven people in the countryhave HIV without knowing it.
Can I get tested even if I’m pregnant?
Doctors recommend that all pregnant women get tested for HIV, even if they think they aren’t at risk. If a woman is HIV-positive, getting treatment as soon as possible can reduce the risk of passing the infection to the baby.
I think I’ve been exposed to HIV. Can I get tested right away?
Unfortunately, the tests currently available cannot detect HIV right away. For most patients, it takes three to 12 weeks to develop detectable antibodies to the virus. However, you can see a doctor at any time for medical guidance and to find out when you should get tested.
When it’s time to get tested, you deserve compassionate, personalized care delivered by friendly professionals. For more information, please visitwww.paramounturgentcare.com.
Rashes are a common cause of walk-in clinic visits and can have many potential causes. During warm weather, when people spend more time outdoors hiking and camping, some of the most common causes of rashes include poison ivy, oak, and sumac. Within 3 days of touching any of these plants, it’s possible to develop an itchy and uncomfortable rash that may be accompanied by swelling and blisters.
To help avoid an unwanted encounter with poison ivy, oak, or sumac, it’s essential to know what these plants look like. Poison ivy has green, pointed leaves with smooth edges that grow in groups of 3 on a shrub or vine. Poison oak also grows as a shrub or vine and has leaves that grow in groups of 3, but their edges are similar in shape to oak tree leaves. Finally, poison sumac tends to grow in boggy, marshy areas as a tall shrub or small tree. The leaf-stems of this plant have 7 to 13 leaves that are green and may have dark spots.
