Flu Test Manchester CT

Do you need a flu test? You might if you’re experiencing symptoms such as fever, chills, muscle aches, coughing, nasal congestion, headache, and fatigue. The best way to feel better fast is to see a medical professional who can provide an accurate diagnosis. This is always important, but it is especially so during the COVID-19 pandemic because many symptoms of the novel coronavirus are very similar to the symptoms of influenza. It’s vital to know the difference so you can better protect your health as well as the health of others.

How Is the Flu Diagnosed?

In many cases, the experienced medical providers at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Manchester, Connecticut, can diagnose the flu based on a physical examination and an evaluation of the symptoms, especially during flu season. If necessary to confirm a diagnosis, we can also provide a rapid flu test, which is a simple nasal swab that can detect the influenza A or B virus within minutes.

"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."
