Recent patient review

Went to MedExpress to have a bump looked at. My grandma (a former nurse) advised to go to MedExpress as I recently moved here and don’t have a PCP yet. Dr. Khorshad rushed into the room and, in a loud tone, said “what is it? A pimple?! Turn around, let me see it.” I did, and she told me “No offense, but it is probably because of how you carry your weight.” Which, I am heavy, but by no means am obese. I’m 5’4 and I weigh 180 lbs. I accepted that it could just be my weight and she said she’d give me a topical ointment and an antibiotic just in case. She then came rushing back into the room and said it may actually be an incurable STD and told me that’s “probably it.” Cue the freaking out, I grab the prescription and leave. Needless to say I’m out $180 between the MedExpress charge, antibiotics, and the STD testing (not performed here) when it appears after closer inspection to be an infected ingrown hair. Due to the placement I couldn’t inspect it closely enough myself, hence why I went to a medical professional who should surely be able to tell the difference between an infected ingrown hair and something considerably more serious She has the worst bedside manner I have seen out of a doctor. If I could give -stars for bedside manner, I would. Incredibly rude and unprofessional.

    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.

    Each year, the CDC and other organizations conduct studies to determine the effectiveness of the flu vaccine against that years flu virus.
