The Team to Choose for Tick Removal & Bite Treatment Services in Norwich, CT

Tick Bite Norwich CTHave you been spending a lot of time outdoors lately? You always want to do a thorough check for tick bites after being outside, especially if you’ve been traversing tall grasses and wooded areas. Although ticks tend to be most prevalent during the spring and summer seasons, they can be active all year long, so it’s important to remain vigilant and always check for tick bites after spending time in the great outdoors.

Fortunately, if you need treatment for a tick bite in Norwich, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you can turn to the experienced providers at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’ve been treating patients since 2008, and we’re pleased to offer tick removal, bite and rash assessment, and preventive treatment services on a walk-in basis.

Tick Bites & Lyme Disease: What’s the Connection?

Many people have heard that tick bites can cause Lyme disease, but aren’t exactly sure how this occurs. Some ticks carry Borrelia burgdorferi, a type of bacteria that can lead to Lyme disease. If an infected tick attaches itself to a human or animal and starts drawing blood, it can transmit this bacterium into the host’s bloodstream. When this occurs, it can result in a Lyme disease infection that causes symptoms such as a rash, fever, fatigue, headache, and joint pain.

Don’t Wait to Seek Treatment

If you think that you may have been bitten by a tick, it’s important to move fast, since removing a tick within 24 hours can significantly reduce the chances of developing Lyme disease. And if Lyme disease is left untreated, it can spread throughout the body, eventually causing damage to the heart, the nerves, the joints, and other systems.

Luckily, if you’re in the Norwich area, you don’t need to wait for an appointment with your primary care provider or endure exorbitant ER fees to get the tick bite treatment you need. Instead, turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care. As with all of our immediate care services, our tick removal and bite treatment services are available on a walk-in basis with no need for an appointment. Stop into our office at 607 West Main Street, in the old Papa Gino’s building, or feel free to check in online ahead of time for even faster service.

"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."
