Due to the surge of Covid volume and the Omicron variant, we are unable to provide quality care through our telemedicine platform. That said, we regret to temporarily disable video visits until further notice.

While our urgent care generally accepts all walk-in patients, the current surge in COVID cases from Omicron has exhausted our system like every other medical institution. Our team is working tirelessly and sacrificing their own health and wellbeing to serve the community during these unprecedented times. We ask the community in return to be patient and gracious to our staff. Until patient volumes normalize, we have no option but to limit how many patients we see. We sincerely apologize for our short comings and assure you we are doing our best to accommodate as many patients as we physically can.

Every evening at 8pm(5pm Sat and Sun), our COVID testing schedule opens for the following day. If you are unable to find a COVID testing appointment for the day, we recommend you visit our website after 8pm(5pm Sat and Sun) to find a convenient time to schedule your COVID test for the following day.


Improving Your Common Autumn Allergy Symptoms

Why Do My Allergies Get Worse in the Fall?

As the weather changes, blooming plants begin to prepare for winter, but this doesn’t mean that there aren’t opportunities for environmental and indoor allergens to cause an uncomfortable allergic reaction. If you suffer from autumn allergies, keep reading to learn how to manage your symptoms.

Common Fall Allergy Triggers

While it may seem that your allergies should cease when spring and summer end, this isn’t always the case. The most common fall allergens we encounter here in Texas include:

  • Ragweed (especially from August to September)
  • Mold (especially from decaying leaves and plants)
  • Mildew
  • Pollen

Additionally, you will still come in contact with the same indoor allergens that spread throughout your home year-round — including dust and pet dander. However, you may experience worse symptoms during autumn due to the fact that cooler air still harbors pollen outdoors, and more time spent inside results in more indoor particles that become airborne within your home.

Understanding Your Allergy Symptoms

The first step in improving your autumn allergies is being able to recognize your symptoms and seek treatment. Common symptoms of allergies include:

  • Sinus issues
  • Sore throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Asthma flares
  • Rashes/hives
