AFC Urgent Care, Statesville NC - 210 Turnersburg Hwy
My 2 kids have been sick for about a month. We’ve tried all the natural remedies and otc medications and just weren't getting better. Pre-registered online and filled out my paperwork. They were busy and under staffed so the wait was understandable. Front staff and nurses were friendly. I was happy to see that Shannon was our NP. We have been so lucky to see her every visit since we started coming. She has perfect bedside manner and it just feels like you're talking to family when she’s around. I’ve always had a great experience with her and my 4 year old loves and feels comfortable with her as well. I highly recommend this urgent over all the other ones in Statesville. So glad that we don’t have to settle for not-so-fast med anymore!

My foot was killing me, so after hobbling around like a three-legged tomcat for a week, I finally gimped my way into this fine establishment. Easy check in with a wait at best of ten minutes. Then an Angel took my x-rays and was kind, funny, and easy on the eyes. Turns out I had a small fracture. But that X-ray technician- such a beautiful soul. Next week I’m breaking a finger. Can’t wait!

FastMed Urgent Care, Boone - 178 NC-105 Extension, Boone
Caraway 3 reviews just now I visited FastMed Urgent Care this morning after experiencing increasing pain from sciatica to the point I was unable to walk. They brought me a wheelchair immediately and assisted me in a very concerned and compassionate manner. I had come unprepared without a copy of my insurance card, so I was concerned they would be unable to treat me without the proper documentation. They were able to retrieve verification of my insurance through Watauga Medical Center. They treated my issue extremely quickly, even though several people were ahead of me in line. That usually means an hour wait anywhere else. I was first met by a medical assistant, Yankee Don. He was fabulous and demonstrated a great amount of care, compassion and competence. He was so attentive to all my needs. If you’re in pain or not feeling well, you could not ask for a better person to reassure you that you will be taken care of. Yankee Don was born to help people and he should be commended for his work ethic and treatment of his patients. I then met Greg, who I believe is a physician’s assistant. Greg was so nice, considerate and knowledgeable. He knew exactly how to diagnose and treat my issue. Greg educated me about the cause of my problem, and a lot of healthcare workers do not take the time to explain why you’re not feeling well. He precisely diagnosed my problem and made me feel that I was in the best hands. He treated my issue completely and provided follow up care instructions. Within an hour, I was completely pain-free and able to walk on my own without any narcotic pain medication whatsoever. Greg is literally a miracle worker, if you ask me, and I feel so fortunate that I was in his care. Upon my departure, I was escorted to my car by Yankee Don, who was so attentive to my needs until he was sure I was comfortably seated in my vehicle and ready to leave. They called in a prescription to a local pharmacy, but I had a problem with my insurance. I contract MedFast and Yankee Don assisted me, contacting me several times to make sure I was able to obtain my prescription. He is literally the nicest man ever. The process, from beginning to end, was top-notch, from check-in to check-out, and beyond. Speed of service...5 stars. Attention to patient needs...5 stars. Competence...5 stars. Professionalism...5 stars. Follow up care...5 stars. Good job, guys! I’m hard to impress. I’m impressed.

  • What will happen if I don’t clean my ears?

    You may develop an excessive amount of ear wax if you do not clean your ears on a regular basis. Pain or itching in the ear, ringing in the ear, and a feeling that the ear is full or clogged are all symptoms of too much ear wax, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). According to the National Institutes of Health, if you do not clean your ears, you may experience odor or discharge from the ear, as well as hearing loss.

About Professional Ear Wax Removal

Dirt, bacteria, and other small particles that could irritate your ear canal and cause hearing loss are shielded by ear wax. On the other side, too much ear wax can obstruct your ear canal and cause hearing loss. Knowing how to safely and effectively remove ear wax can help you safeguard your hearing and ear health.

Why do we have ear wax?

Ear wax is a natural substance that protects your ears by trapping microscopic debris like dust and bacteria that might otherwise injure them. According to the National Library of Medicine, ear wax also protects the sensitive skin inside your ear canal from water-related irritation (NLM).

As it moves from the inside of your ears to the outside of the ear canal, ear wax gathers dead skin cells, debris, and hair. According to Harvard Medical School, ear wax has antibacterial and antifungal properties, making it an effective natural ear cleanser. It continues by stating that if your ears do not produce or hold enough ear wax, they will be itchy and unpleasant.

Treatment of a common ear condition

Ear wax removal, according to the National Library of Medicine, can help you prevent and avoid hearing loss. According to the National Library of Medicine, most cases of ear wax buildup can be treated at home using treatments that soften the wax so it can be easily removed or washed out. It goes on to state that you may need to seek medical help in some circumstances to avoid injuring your ears or causing an infection.

According to the National Library of Medicine, hearing loss caused by ear wax buildup is usually temporary and disappears after the blockage is removed. Hearing loss that persists after wax removal should be checked and treated by a physician.

The side effects of excessive ear wax

Excessive ear wax can cause ear discomfort and hearing problems, according to the National Library of Medicine. According to the National Library of Medicine, ear wax buildup is associated with ear pain, a perception of blocked ears, and tinnitus (inner ear noises). It's also possible that you have a partial hearing loss that gets worse with time.

The development of ear wax

Ear wax is also known as cerumen. It is a mixture of secretions from sebaceous glands and sweat glands in the outer ear canal's walls, according to Harvard Medical School.

Secretions flow through the inner ear canal and into the outer ear canal when you chew or talk with your jaw, where they dry out and flake. This allows older ear wax deposits to flow out or be removed more easily, according to Harvard Medical School.

Where wax comes from

According to Harvard Medical School, ear wax is a natural ear cleanser produced by glands in the ear canal to protect your ears from harmful dirt and other waste. No one knows why some people have more ear wax problems than others, according to the article.

Older adults with coarse, wiry hairs in their ears have more ear wax buildup problems than others, according to the University of Texas at Austin. Because some hearing aids are designed in such a way that wax cannot easily flow out of the ear canal, hearing aid users have more ear wax than non-users.

Ear wax removal tips

Cotton swabs are frequently used to remove ear wax buildup. Many medical experts advise against using this treatment, according to UC San Diego, because it can push wax deeper into the ear canal. It goes on to state that using wax-softening ear drops, which can be obtained at practically any pharmacy, is the easiest way to clean your ears.

To soften ear wax, the National Library of Medicine suggests using baby oil or mineral oil. With a small piece of cloth or tissue wrapped around your finger, you may simply remove the wax from the outer ear canal once you can see it.

The National Library of Medicine recommends consulting a doctor if you're having problems removing ear wax. A doctor can employ other irrigation procedures, as well as a curette or suction equipment, to remove ear wax.

Tips for hearing-aid wearers

Hearing aid users should have their ear canals inspected for additional wax every three to six months, according to the National Library of Medicine. Ear wax is responsible for 60 percent to 70% of hearing aid degradation, according to Harvard Medical School. If you wear a hearing aid, have your doctor check your ears for ear wax buildup at least once every six months.
