Happy Veterans Day to Veterans of All Kinds

Associated Press photo from Dr. Dennis’s Green Beret days.

Prior to his career in medicine, Dr. Patrick Dennis was an enlisted member of the U.S. Army Special Operations Forces “Green Berets”. This photo was taken by an Associated Press journalist and run in newspapers across the country during the 80’s. According to Dr. Dennis, this service dog named Dante, “was an amazing dog”. 

His military service and love for dogs is why Dr. Dennis and Urgent Care MD are huge supporters of many different veterans associations.

This Veterans Day, please think to donate to one of the following veteran’s organizations, or one of your choice.

Wounded Warrior Project

– Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

– Warrior Dogs Foundation.

Thank you for your support of Dr. Dennis and veterans all over New Orleans and our great country.

Don’t Be Spooked by Flu Shots!

Happy Halloween from the staff at  Urgent Care MD on Harrison in Lakeview!

As far as holidays go, the scary time of year is over. That doesn’t mean there aren’t things out there you should be afraid of.

Don't be spooked by Flu Shots

Don’t be spooked by Flu Shots

The flu changes every year, which is why the Centers for Disease Control says “everyone 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccine.” The CDC also adds, ” It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop full protection against the flu. Get vaccinated now to protect yourself and your loved ones!”

At Urgent Care MD (UCMD), you can walk in during office hours, get your flu shot, and be back out the door within minutes. While you never need an appointment, if you’d like to schedule a time, check out our easy to use online scheduling system.

Not only do we offer up quick flu shots, Urgent Care MD can set up a day to come to your office, organization, or group and take care of immunizations for everyone at once! Click here to check out a cool time-lapse video of UCMD giving flu shots at Sher Garner Law Firm in downtown New Orleans.

Don’t be spooked by the flu shot. Come to UCMD on Harrison in Lakeview today and make sure you keep those scary flu bugs away!

(Coming soon, flu shots and more at our new location at 2525 Canal in Mid-City New Orleans!)
