My experience was awesome. Thank you to the staff. I give you 5 out of 5 stars and I rarely do that. I always have a reason to give lower scores on most surveys but you guys rock so you got the maximum!! Thank you!!!
I won't go anywhere else when I'm in need of urgent care. The best doctors, incredibly kind, quick wait time, good atmosphere. Just love the place - always feel a good resolution when I leave.
Staff was very professional and personable.
No wait time. Staff was very efficient and quick. The Dr. was very knowledgeable, he explained everything that he was doing. I received excellent, quick care.
It was great! The Dr explained everything to me Everyone there was really nice.
I was really skeptical about coming here because of the possible wait time of 2 to 3 hours. Once I arrived my wait time was 20 minutes. The entire staff were friendly and professional and even compassionate. They understood my needs and cared for me appropriately. X rays were ordered and the technician was very warm and gentle. They offer little snacks and a beverage and gave me a bag of take home therapeutic goodies for my pain and discomfort as well as other little gifts to use on a daily basis. My overall experience here was great and would recommend this clinic to anyone. To the staff of US Healthworks thank you and may God bless you.

Is a flu shot necessary?
Everyone 6 months or older should get vaccinated for the flu every year. Influenza, or the flu, is a serious virus and infection that hospitalizes and kills thousands of people annually. And it is constantly changing. The flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family from contracting the virus.
Do I need to get a flu shot every year?
Flu vaccines are needed annually, primarily for two reasons. First, the flu virus is constantly evolving, meaning the virus you received a vaccine for last year is unique from the virus in the upcoming season. As such, the vaccine itself needs to be different. Second, the vaccine itself wears off and your immune system’s response to the flu virus decreases over time. Unless you receive the vaccine every year, you will lack necessary immunity.
When should I get a flu shot?
Each year is a little different, but flu season generally starts as early as September. Getting a flu shot early in the season - August to October - gives your buddy the best opportunity to build up immunity to the virus as it does take roughly two weeks for the vaccine to protect you against infection. Of course, if you are unable to get the flu shot early, getting a flu shot later still helps as the virus could last through May.
How effective is the flu shot?
Each year, the CDC and other organizations conduct studies to determine the effectiveness of the flu vaccine against that years flu virus. According to the CDC, recent studies show that flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60%. Of course, there are multiple types and strands of the flu virus including influenza B and influenza A(H1N1), as well as influenza A(H3N2). Generally speaking, flu shots tend to work better against influenza types A & B.
How long does a flu shot last?
The flu vaccine lasts for one flu season as the virus constantly evolves and each year the vaccine is produced to specifically protect against the strand(s) that are prevalent in the upcoming flu season.
How much does a flu shot cost?
Depending on where you get your flu vaccine, what type of vaccine you are getting, and whether or not you are insured, flu shot costs vary. Generally speaking, however, flu shots can cost between $0 and $50, sometimes more.
