If you’re among the 25 million Americans who live with asthma—a chronic condition that causes inflammation and swelling in the airways to the lungs—you know how uncomfortable and inconvenient asthma symptoms can be. Thankfully, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is here to help. Our fully equipped and physician-led urgent care center offers asthma treatment on a walk-in basis to patients of all ages in Stratford, Connecticut. And since we’re open 365 days per year during extended hours, you can receive medical assistance on a lazy Sunday afternoon, a Thursday evening after work, or whenever your asthma symptoms may flare up.

Should I Go to the ER or Urgent Care for Asthma Treatment?

It’s an excellent idea to visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for asthma treatment in non-life-threatening scenarios, as our clinicians can provide long-term and quick-relief medications to help you breathe easy again and better manage routine symptoms. However, it’s important to immediately go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 if you or someone around you experiences signs of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack, which may include:

  • Wheezing or shortness of breath that rapidly worsens
  • Notable shortness of breath during mild activity
  • No improvement in symptoms after using a quick-relief inhaler
  • Trouble walking or speaking
  • Confusion or dizziness

"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."
