The Provider to Choose for Ear Infection Treatment in Stratford, CT

Picture of someone administering ear drops to a woman.Have you suddenly developed ear pain with no known cause? Are fluids draining from your ear, or are you having trouble hearing? Symptoms like these can signal the presence of a middle ear infection, which occurs when a bacterial or viral infection develops in the middle ear (the space behind the eardrum).

Fortunately, if you’re in Stratford, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you won’t need to go far for the care you need. We’re a trusted immediate care provider that’s been treating patients since 2008, and we’re pleased to offer ear infection treatment and other urgent care services on a walk-in basis.

How to Treat an Ear Infection

If you’re experiencing the signs of an ear infection, your next question will likely be how to treat them. Ear infections often resolve on their own, without the need for professional care. But, you should consult with a trained provider if:

  • Your symptoms have lasted for more than one day
  • Your ear pain is severe
  • There is pus, blood, or another fluid draining from your ear
  • The infected individual is a child less than six months old

Ear infection treatment will vary from one patient to another, but often involves a combination of antibiotics, pain medication, and anesthetic ear drops.

Don’t Worry About Making an Appointment

When you have an ear infection that requires medical attention, the last thing you want to do is wait for an appointment with your primary care provider. Not only will you be in pain, but you’ll also be at risk of developing more serious complications. But if your PCP doesn’t have any appointments available, what are you to do?

That’s where PhysicianOne Urgent Care comes in handy. Our Stratford immediate care center is open 365 days per year with extended hours, and we never require appointments (although you can still check in online or book an appointment in advance, if desired). We’re conveniently located at 1040 Barnum Avenue, so stop in whenever you have time, and we’ll provide you with the prompt ear infection treatment you deserve. Or, schedule a telehealth virtual visit to receive care in the comfort of your own home. Contact us today at 860-650-3848 with any questions.

"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."
