Here in Texas, we get a lot of hot days that can make it difficult to stay hydrated. Dehydration can occur as a result of sweating too much on a hot day, from an illness that causes you to vomit excessively, or from any other event that prevents your body from getting the water it needs. No matter the cause or the severity, at the iCare ER & Urgent Care in Frisco and South Fort Worth, TX our team of doctors are experienced in treating both the causes and symptoms of dehydration. Our modern facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art tools and technology, private exam rooms, and an onsite CLIA/COLA certified laboratory so that we can quickly diagnose and treat your dehydration. Offering IV medication fluids and other emergency care, you can rest assured that iCare can help.
Without treatment, dehydration can affect your health in serious ways. If you notice symptoms of dehydration after being in the heat or after being sick, you should visit the iCare center as soon as possible. Generally, symptoms include extreme thirst, dry mouth, a swollen tongue, muscle weakness, dizziness or faintness, exhaustion, confusion, a racing heart, headache, dark urine, and decreased urine. Additionally, if you experience a fever over 101º F, vomiting that lasts longer than a day or diarrhea that lasts longer than 2 days, sudden weight loss, low blood pressure, sunken eyes and dry skin, reduced sweating, or extreme confusion and weakness, you should come in for treatment immediately. You may need to be treated in our 24/7 emergency room if you have a fever above 103º F along with severe weakness or lethargy, difficulty breathing, chest pain, stomach pain, unconsciousness, seizures, or no urine output for 12 hours.
"I was seen very promptly, they took good care of me. All staff members were extremely nice. One of my favorite places of all time."- R.O. / Yelp / Mar 10, 2018
"I really hate to give this review but they deserve it based on the quality of care My family and I have received over the last 2 years. I say hate to give a review because we have never waited more than 10 minutes and the quality of care is always excellent. I hate to wait in line. I really do not like urgent care facilities because I find them very slow and they tend to have deceptive business practices. ICare is very straight forward, fast, and a has caring attitude. They want to give you the best care possible and get you out of there quickly. Everyone hates going to urgent care because it takes forever and tends to be expensive. This is not the case at ICare. My advice is to give them a try the next time you need to see a doctor. Call ahead and confirm if it is urgent care vs emergency care. I think you will be very pleased."- R.G. / Yelp / May 19, 2019
"I pulled a muscle in my back and was in extremely pain. My daughter drove me and she went into the facility to get a wheelchair and returned with 2 people. Wilson the Nurse was extremely professional, kind and sympathetic. He patiently &gently helped get me as comfortable as I could. He explained EVERYTHING throughly. He respected what I had to say and truly listened.Dr Cole did the same. I was treated with necessary medicine and began to feel better. I was given the necessary Rx and was out of the faculty in 90 minutes. I would highly recommend this Urgent Care."- J.K. / Google / Apr 30, 2019
