We’re Here 7 Days a Week to Help Patients With Their Flu Testing & Diagnosis Questions
Residents in Hamden, Connecticut, and the surrounding areas can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care when they need help with their flu symptoms. It’s important to be seen by a medical care professional within 48 hours of first feeling flu symptoms, as anti-viral drugs are most effective within that window. When you visit us, you’ll be seen by an experienced and caring medical provider who will take the time to evaluate your symptoms and let you know whether or not you have the flu. In most cases, we can diagnose the flu without a flu test, but if it’s deemed necessary, we can conduct a flu test onsite. This easy test is performed by simply swabbing the back of your throat or inside of your nose and the results can be ready in just 15 minutes.
If we determine that you have the flu, our medical providers will design a proper treatment plan that is aimed at alleviating your symptoms and getting you to feeling better as quickly as possible. This may include antiviral medications, over-the-counter pain relievers, rest, and staying hydrated.
When you visit us because you suspect you have the flu, we understand it’s because you’re not feeling well. That’s why we will always take the time to listen to you, make sure you feel welcomed, and give you the individualized testing, attention, and care that you deserve.
