Picture of a sick woman coughing and sitting on a couch with a scarf wrapped around her neck.Are you experiencing a fever, chills, coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, a headache, throat soreness, and loss of appetite? If so, you may have pneumonia. Luckily, if you’re in Southbury, Connecticut, you can receive the treatment you need at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Our skilled providers have extensive experience treating pneumonia and walking pneumonia (a milder form of the illness).

How Do You Get Pneumonia?

Pneumonia occurs when a bacterial, fungal, or viral infection causes the air sacs within the lungs to become inflamed. Although pneumonia can have various causes, it most commonly develops when someone inhales airborne droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.

How Long Does Pneumonia Last?

The recovery period for pneumonia varies depending on the severity of the condition—some individuals feel better after about a week, while it can take other people more than a month to get back to their usual activities. An experienced provider can provide a better estimate that’s customized to your specific circumstances.

"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."
