Tis the season for the flu

The dreaded flu can cause mild to severe illness. The flu is different from a cold and usually comes on suddenly. People who have the flu often have symptoms of a fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue.
How to prevent the flu this season:


  • Get a flu vaccine
  • Avoid others who are sick
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects

To schedule an appointment or for more information contact (559) 738-7500.




 

Nephrologist expands practice at Visalia Medical

Clinic Nephrologist Tariq Javed has expanded his practice at Visalia Medical Clinic and is now accepting new patients.

Dr. Javed is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a member of the American College of Physicians and the American Society of Nephrology. He completed his nephrology fellowship at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, where he served as chief fellow, and his internal medicine residency at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

A nephrologist treats kidney conditions, and prescribes treatments that may include medication, diet changes or dialysis. Patients are referred to a nephrologist when signs of potential kidney disease are seen, such as blood or protein in the urine, kidney stones, fluid retention leading to swollen legs or ankles, nausea or back pain.


Convenient prescriptions!

VMC is pleased to offer Boyd’s Pharmacy, right here in the clinic. The next time you see your doctor and have a new or refill prescription, have the order sent to Boyd’s for convenient pick-up.
