When To Seek Medical Care for Pneumonia Symptoms

PhysicianOne Urgent Care provides treatment for mild to moderate cases of pneumonia, including walking pneumonia. While some mild viral infections may clear on their own with plenty of rest and fluids, it’s a good idea to visit our urgent care center for treatment if your symptoms involve:

  • A persistent cough, which may produce mucus
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness
  • A fever that lingers around 102 degrees Fahrenheit

It’s especially important to seek professional medical care for pneumonia if you’re older than 65 or have a compromised immune system. PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s experienced clinicians can rule out other possible causes of your symptoms (such as COVID-19 or bronchitis), prescribe appropriate medications if your infection is bacterial or fungal, suggest ways to ease symptoms, and help prevent complications.

Severe cases of pneumonia require emergency treatment in a hospital setting. Go to the nearest ER or call 911 if any of the following symptoms occur:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Bluish lips or fingernails
  • Confusion or lethargy
  • A fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit or higher (for adults)

"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."
