Caring & Compassionate Flu Treatment for Residents of Groton, CT
Are you experiencing nasal congestion, coughing, a sore throat, chills, fatigue, and achiness? Do you have a fever of 100°F or higher? If so, you may have the flu. Fortunately, if you’re in Groton, Connecticut, or a surrounding area, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for influenza (flu) treatment. Our practice was founded by a team of physicians in 2008, and we’ve been treating patients at our Groton location since 2014.
What Does Flu Treatment Typically Involve?
When you visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for flu treatment, one of our experienced providers will ask you about your symptoms and perform an examination to determine if you have the flu virus (in some cases, we may also use a rapid flu test to rule out other conditions, although this generally isn’t necessary). If we determine that you have the flu, we’ll recommend a course of treatment tailored to your specific needs, which may include an antiviral flu medication like Tamiflu.
It’s important to come in for flu treatment as soon as possible once you start feeling ill, since antiviral medications are most effective if taken within two days after flu symptoms appear. Even if antiviral medications aren’t appropriate for your specific condition, seeking prompt treatment can help you feel better as quickly as possible and minimize the risk of flu complications.
