Special Thanks
The Dallas County Healths Department has discontinued their assistance in identifying H1N1 infections unless the patient is immuno-compromised. We would like to thank our public servants at the Dallas County Health Department for helping us this last week in identifing the presence of H1N1 with our suspected patients.

The key to treatment is early diagnosis. EcCare keeps Influenza screening tests available to our physicians. If you would like to read more of the details about Swine flu click on the links below.
