What Does Flu Treatment Entail?
Once you’ve been diagnosed with the flu, our experienced medical providers will recommend an appropriate treatment option. In some cases, antiviral medications will be prescribed, but these are usually most effective within 48 hours of initial symptoms (which is why you should visit us as soon as you start feeling ill). In other cases, we may recommend over-the-counter medications, rest, and proper hydration. However, it’s always important to get checked out to ensure that you take the appropriate actions so that you can recover as quickly as possible and minimize the chances of complications.
Appointments Are Never Necessary
It can be hard to get an appointment with a primary care doctor on short notice, and the expensive prices and long wait times at an emergency room can make people cringe at the thought of going there. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we offer the best of both worlds. We accept patients on a walk-in basis, and our wait times are generally shorter — and our prices are generally lower — than most emergency rooms, making us the ideal choice when you need to seek flu treatment. What’s more, we even have an online check-in system to expedite the process, allowing you to get in and out quickly while still receiving a high level of care.
