Lyme Disease Diagnosis and Treatment at Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinic in Swampscott

When the months begin to get warmer, everyone is eager to get outside after spending a cold winter indoors. It is the time to enjoy outdoor activities either on your own or with your family.

Being bitten by a tick also carries additional risks and can cause serious health issues.
