Flu Treatment in Ridgefield, CT—Come in Right Away!

Flu Treatment Ridgefield CTIf you think you’ve come down with the flu, early detection is important to ensure prompt and effective treatment, should you need it. Therefore, it’s critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Don’t delay—you should be evaluated by a doctor within two days. The reason? If you require flu treatment and your doctor prescribes an antiviral medication, you’ll need to start taking it immediately in order to achieve the maximum benefits. Researchers have confirmed that antiviral medications are most effective when given within 48 hours after the onset of symptoms.

Our Evidence-Based Approach

Utilizing evidence-based medicine, the doctors at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Ridgefield, Connecticut, can quickly determine whether you need flu treatment and, if so, suggest an appropriate approach to help you feel better fast. We encourage you to come in shortly after you start feeling ill. When taken right away, an antiviral medication can lessen both the severity and the duration of your illness. On the other hand, if you’ve already been sick for several days, we may determine that an at-home treatment approach will be more beneficial for you.
Whether or not your flu treatment includes an antiviral medication, our doctors will likely recommend that you:

  • Rest at home for a few days
  • Avoid close contact with others (you’re contagious!)
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Stay well-hydrated by drinking water and other fluids
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever or nasal decongestant, if necessary

"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."
