CareMed Urgent & Primary Care Now Offering Comprehensive Allergy Testing

Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, an estimated 50 million Americans suffer from all types of allergies, including indoor/outdoor, food and drug, latex, insect, skin and eye allergies. Thanks to comprehensive allergy testing thats being offered by CareMed Urgent & Primary Care (, theres now a way to get recommended treatment to enjoy the beautiful spring and summer weather.

Allergy triggers, or allergens, can vary by region of the country and from person to person, Dr. Vipul Mangal, M.D., co-owner and spokesman for CareMed Urgent & Primary Care, said. Thats why knowing the allergens that affect you is so important.

CareMed Urgent & Primary Care, according to Dr. Mangal, offers a percutaneous scratch test with allergenic extracts for the 72 most common allergens, including but not limited to seasonal allergy triggers.

A comprehensive report of results outlining individual triggers is provided and used to outline a personal allergy approach plan in partnership with the patients healthcare provider, Dr. Mangal pointed out.

CareMed Urgent & Primary Cares decision to offer comprehensive allergy testing could prove to have perfect timing due to the fact that allergy is the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S among all ages, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. In addition to that, allergy is the third most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old.

With warming temperatures, for some, come the tell-tale symptoms of seasonal allergies: congestion, a runny nose, itchy eyes, a tickle in the throat, Dr. Mangal explained.

In addition to the allergy testing, CareMed Urgent & Primary Cares team of trained professionals offer comprehensive and cost-effective walk-in urgent and primary care services Monday-Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Although no appointment is necessary for urgent care, patients with non-urgent care needs who want to limit their wait time on arrival at CareMed may request an appointment online.

As to what people can expect when it comes to services, Dr. Mangal pointed out that upon arrival at its office, the companys trained professionals will provide thorough assessment and treatment of adults and children with illnesses and injuries, such as: allergies, cold and flu, cough, sore throat, ear infection, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, cuts and other abrasions, orthopedic sprains and strains.

Variable Life Insurance Policy Quotes Now Obtained Through Consumer Insurance Portal Online

Midland, TX (PRWEB) March 16, 2015

Adults who are seeking a way to improve the cash value of a life insurance policy will now have the option to search for new quotes through the Quotes Pros website online. There are now variable life insurance policy providers offering direct quotations at

The coverage now available to working adults or seniors to protect against poor health and final expenses at the portal is provided by new rated companies. Since some adults use a variable policy as a long-term investment, finding the approximate price for an annual plan should now be easier.

“The providers inside of our system now quoting universal and variable coverage plans could help someone make a purchase decision based on the quotations that are now calculated,” said one Quotes Pros company source.

One of the pluses of a variable life plan that adults can explore while using the search finder this year is the options for self-controlling the way a policy is built. While some companies that provide insurance control every aspect of a policy, a variable plan allows more control by an account owner to choose when premiums are paid or what loans can be taken out of the plans.

“Adults do have a range of different options to explore when choosing a coverage plan and a provider, and our website is setup to make the process less frustrating,” said the source.

The Quotes Pros company has updated its existing list of small business insurance agencies that now provide automotive and liability insurance for professionals. The locator tool at can now be accessed.


The company provides automotive, life, health, business and renter insurance companies through its connected search system on the web. Adults in all areas of the country now use this system to quote insurer policies. The company has included a range of new agencies that are providing low cost coverage plans for consumers to research this year.

Insurance Premium Discounts from U.S. Auto Insurance Companies Added to National Insurer Database Online

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 17, 2015

Paying less for some forms of insurance coverage will now be possible for adults who visit the Quotes Pros website this year. Insurers that are supplying insurance premium discounts nationally for automotive insurance can now be explored at

The selected agencies that are available to consumers to review while using the website include 10 of the top American insurers. While more providers can be explored, the largest discounts are supplied by the biggest companies that now specialize in multiple forms of car insurance.

“Discounts can vary between agencies based on the state where a driver uses a vehicle as well as what crash history a person has,” said one Quotes Pros rep.

The discounts for selected insurer plans that are searchable through the revised system this year are attached to full or liability plans. While add-on coverage is one option for drivers, some full coverage policies do provide additional accident or medical payments protection. Complex and basic coverages can now be searched for applicable discounts.

“The use of our tools can be a little faster when compared to using phones to obtain a quote for a complex type of vehicle insurance in the USA,” said the rep.

The Quotes Pros company has improved the listing of life insurance companies that are providing multiple coverages to consumers this year. A search of the database at will now return whole, universal, guaranteed and variable plans that can be quoted. Every price that is quoted by insurers in this group is valid throughout the remainder of 2015.


The company offers research tools to consumers who are exploring what insurance companies offer in the U.S. The company provides a growing listing of national companies that are quoting direct policies online. The company helps people locate and quote automotive, business, life, medical, renter and homeowner insurance policies that are affordable.

Guaranteed Acceptance Life Insurance Quotes Added to Insurer Search System for Adults Online

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 06, 2015

Shopping for life coverage plans as an adult will now be easier through usage of the Quotes Pros website this year. Consumers can now generate guaranteed acceptance life insurance quotes from the new providers that are featured in the company research system now setup at

One of the selling points of the guaranteed policies for men and women is that no medical exam is needed. After the quotation process, a person only has to agree to the monthly premiums in order to start a short or long-term coverage plan. Every quotation that is now presented in the system comes from specialized insurers inside the USA.

“Some adults do not qualify for a preferred policy and might end up paying higher rates for coverage, and our system is helping to introduce policy types that all people will quality for,” said one Quotes Pros rep.

Because insurers on a national level underwrite coverage based on age or current health status of an adult, pricing can and will vary when agencies are compared. The Quotes Pros portal does allow searches for term, whole and universal plans from providers that offer discounts in some parts of the country.

“The insurer portal that we’ve built is now updated several times weekly with agencies that are supplying a range of medical coverage plans,” said the rep.

The Quotes Pros company website is also featuring ways to explore and compare home insurance plans this year aside from adult life insurance. A person who enters the company database of insurers to research can now choose state level homeowner insurance coverage providers to review policy prices.


The company offers Americans the opportunity to find, quote or purchase top insurance company policies through help from its website. The company has introduced one of the first national search tools to find plans of coverage. The company uses a networked platform that arranges providers by city zip codes to match consumer requests for policy types on the web.

Where’s the Podcast?

Hi –

If you came to this page looking for the Short Cummings Audio presents Happily Domesticated podcast, I’m afraid you’ve arrived too late. After four-and-a-half years of production and distribution, I made the decision to shut down the show.

(To be honest, since April of 2010 it’s been re-runs, so it wasn’t too big a jump from that to a total shut down.)

For those of you confused by the first two paragraphs…a little explanation. This blog is the companion to an audio program called Happily Domesticated. That sounds really cool, but it was mostly just me reading the essays into a computer. So if you didn’t stumble across that while it was running…you didn’t miss any of the content…just my voice.

If you want to get in touch with me, post a comment below. I get notified of all of them and I’d love to hear from you.

For those of you — too many to name, but you know who you are — who contributed to the podcast experience; thank you. You made it a wonderful ride!

To those of you who still want access to the material, the essays are all here on the site for your reading pleasure. If there’s something you remember, but can’t find … let me know. I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

I’m busy with other writing projects right now and when the time is right, I’ll post information here.

With fond regards,

    Kind of feel like I lost a friend…

    Hi Kevin,
    Thanks for riding with my family and I to church each week over the last 4 years. We really appreciated you clean humor. We will miss it. I still have archives of a lot of your shows and we will no doubt listen to them again. It was refreshing to be able to depend on you for humor without the offensive language that a lot of the other comedy show contain.

    Bless you in your future endeavors. – The Harrison Family

  3. Thanks for the last 4 years. My blog, BDGJM, would not exist without your inspiration and mentorship. I will miss your podcasts but I know your projects will be met with success.


  4. Thanks Shane. I’m glad I could be part of your journey as a writer…and I really enjoy your blog!

  5. I’m sorry to hear this. I enjoyed listening to your stories even when they were the reruns. Any plans for any new audio projects or to someday put the audio back up? Either as an archive or even a purchasable dvd?

    • Glad you enjoyed listening. At the moment, I don’t have a place to host an archive, but I’ll give some thought to compiling them into a single disc. The files come to a little over 1 GB, so it would be easy to get ‘em all on a DVD.

  6. I’m sorry to hear this, but glad we got 200 excellent episodes and a year of reruns of some of the favorites. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the KLC media empire.

  7. Hey Kevin, sorry to see it go. Have you heard of a site called ? Maybe there’s an opportunity for them to read your stories instead. Just a thought. Be well.

  8. Hey Kevin! Sorry to see you go. You’re a big part of my podcasting experience, too. Gonna miss you.

  9. Sergey Stopkevych

    Hello Kevin. I came across your podcast series just in the end of the last year. I was so astonished by your clean, sparkling and intelligent humor, that spent two days downloading your essays, and then, for the last several months I’ve enjoyed my driving to work more than ever, shocking people around by insane happiness on my facial expression, especially in the morning. I am Ukrainian and my mother tongue is Russian. I like Russian literature very much and love powerful Russian language. It’s ways different from English, not just by words, you know. Listening to your podcast, I want to thank you for amazing language you made me feel, and, what is much more for the humor which proves that there are like-minded people all over the world despite the language they speak or country they live. I recommended your essays to all my friends who know or learn English and they were astonished as well. That’s really a pity you stopped podcasting, and the only excuse might be that the novel you are co-authoring will be an outstanding one. Good luck!

    • Thank you Sergey. Your kind words are a gift to me.

      My writing partner and I are revising the novel. (Although, my partner is a much better writer than I am.) And we will annouce it in this space when it is available.

  10. i hope you find a solution to archive the podcast somewhere (and get some money for your good work). My French students liked them.
