Tick Removal & Bite Treatment Services for Brookfield, CT, Residents & Visitors

Tick Bite Brookfield CTHave you or a loved one been bitten by a tick? If you need treatment for a tick bite in Brookfield, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you can turn to the experts at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. In addition to offering tick removal and bite and rash assessment services, we also administer preventive treatment.

Tick Bites & Lyme Disease

Tick bites are dangerous because ticks can transmit a wide array of diseases. For instance, some ticks carry Borrelia burgdorferi, the type of bacteria that causes Lyme disease. When an infected black-legged tick attaches itself to a human or an animal and starts drawing blood for its own nourishment, it can transmit the bacterium at issue into the person or animal’s bloodstream. Lyme disease symptoms include:

  • Rash
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Joint pain

Unfortunately, if left untreated, a Lyme disease infection can spread throughout the body and affect the heart, the joints, and the nervous system. Because removing a tick within 24 hours can significantly reduce the likelihood of developing Lyme disease, it’s important to perform daily tick checks if you spend time outdoors and seek treatment as soon as possible, if necessary.

Walk-In Treatment for Tick Bites

As noted above, early treatment is critical when it comes to tick bites. If you suspect that you’ve been bitten by a tick, you probably don’t have time to wait for an appointment with your primary care provider. And unless you’re experiencing life-threatening symptoms, an emergency room visit may not be the best option either, since it could involve a long wait time and high cost.

Luckily, at PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we offer tick removal and bite treatment services on a walk-in basis. Visit our Brookfield urgent care center at 31 Old Route 7 in the Brookfield Medical Center—we’re open every day of the year with extended hours for our patients’ convenience.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
