STDs are sexually transmitted diseases that are spread through sexual contact or intercourse. Syphilis, herpes, and chlamydia are just a few examples of common STDs that we have all heard of or heard of treatment for. While we’ve all heard of the treatment options available, some of us don’t know about the testing or preventative options available. With that in mind, the only way to be sure that you have an STD is to get tested by a medical professional and the only way to get effective preventative resources and methods is to also visit a medical professional. You should be

You should always take head wounds seriously, but, in many cases, this type of injury can be treated by applying a cold compress to the area or cleaning out a mild wound with rubbing alcohol and applying an antibiotic to the injured scalp. Many times, we fall or hit our heads on something and as long as we can walk, or respond we assume that everything is okay, It’s not uncommon for many of us to think minor headache pain or head pain from accidents can be treated with pain killers. However, some head injuries - even those that are

In 2013, over 56,000 Americans died from pneumonia, and that was not an anomaly. While some people think pneumonia is a disease that only killed people many years ago, it in fact can still and still does claim lives today. Thousands of people die from pneumonia each year in the U.S. Slightly more women than men are hospitalized for pneumonia, and the rate is slightly higher in white Americans than in black Americans. This disease is far from obsolete, and even with modern medicine, not everyone recovers.  At Walking Urgent Care, Inc., we can help diagnose and treat you if you

When someone is seriously injured or facing life threatening injuries, it’s obviously time to call an ambulance and get them to an emergency room.

At Walking Urgent Care, Inc. we help people who have a variety of different injuries, ailments, and other issues. Don’t hesitate to call and see if visiting a walk-in medical clinic in Coral Springs can help you. There are many different types of illnesses and

Similar to COVID-19, influenza was a disease that shook up the world in the early 1900s. After a short period of living in fear, a vaccine was created and eased many people’s minds. Fast forward to 2020 and there is no longer much fear when it comes to the flu, seeing many people choose to not get the once begged for, flu vaccine. The flu vaccine is one that is always changing with a new one being released every single year. This factor, among many others, makes some skeptical about the vaccine and its benefits. However, with any myth comes

There comes a point every year where your annual physical nears. While this date gets closer and closer more questions may begin to pop into your head. Some of these questions we commonly get asked are whether a physical exam is necessary and why we recommend getting one every year. These questions and the many others we get are valid and can bring out some frustration in patients. Our staff at Walking Urgent Care, Inc. understands how annoying it can be coming into the clinic for a quick physical exam; however, these exams can serve you many benefits. It may

Sometimes it can be difficult to determine if its time to get that x-ray for your most recent injury. An x-ray can be easy to put off because sometimes we truly don’t know that our body is in a condition that requires one. Some people even find that they can function with some pain and decide that things will just eventually resolve themselves. This may be all fine and good for now; however, injuries that require x-rays do not always get better on there own. In fact, in a lot of cases, these injuries tend to get worse and worse

In a time where there are numerous in-person options such as Urgent Care, your primary care physician (otherwise known as your PCP), and the ER it can be difficult to understand when to go to what. Having all of the options in the world sounds amazing and convenient, right? Wrong. Sometimes having many different options can make things harder on the patient. It’s important to know when an illness or injury is minor, moderate, or life-threatening. These categories are a telltale sign of where to go for the best possible treatment. While we all know our bodies and when things

X-rays are a method used by doctors and nurses to get imagery of your bodily structure, usually the bones. This method is almost always painless and quick for patients. This imagery method works by passing beams through your body, which are then absorbed. Depending on how dense the object the beam passed through is how each object will show up on the photo. For example, white is for the more dense objects such as your bones and any metal in your body. The gray parts make up your fat and muscle while your black parts represent the air in your

The only way to be sure that you have an STD is to get tested by a medical professional. You should be tested for STDs regularly, even if you do not display symptoms.
