The Importance of Well-Child Visits at All Ages

Parents know how important it is for babies to see their pediatricians regularly. We check the child’s weight and height, make sure they’re on track developmentally and answer any questions or concerns the parents have.

ER vs Urgent Care: Know the Differences

It’s natural to want to use the emergency room when you or your family has an accident, gets sick or needs medical assistance. For life-threatening emergencies, the ER is the appropriate care choice. But for broken bones, lacerations requiring stitches, flu and cough, allergies, infections, and more, Primary Health Medical Group clinics are a more convenient and affordable choice.

Like the ER, Primary Health Medical Group Urgent Care Clinics provide the highest caliber of qualified medical talent with convenient hours. Unlike the ER, a trip to a Primary Health Urgent Care Clinic will cost less money and take less time.

But It's a DRY Heat

Granted, the weather in the Boise area has finally gotten warm (okay, hot). But truly, it is a DRY heat. While the rest of the country is melting (currently the temperature in St. Louis is 97F with 49% humidity - making it feel like 109F), Boise is enjoying the summer (and not to rub it in, but today's high will be 89F).

The summers in the area are hot - and you should take relevant precautions - but they are still comfortable enough to enjoy some of our valley's favorite activities. Running, biking, hiking are all very enjoyable during the first half of the day. And when it gets warmer, fishing, rafting, and (finally) floating the Boise river. It's a little later than usual, but the Boise river is now open for floating for the season.
