Treating Fever Symptoms at Our Waterbury, CT, Urgent Care Center

Fever Symptoms Waterbury CTPhysicianOne Urgent Care—a trusted immediate care provider serving patients in Waterbury, Connecticut, and surrounding areas—is pleased to offer walk-in fever treatment. We’ve been assisting patients with a wide array of health care concerns since 2008, and we’re proud to have been the first urgent care center in Connecticut certified by the Urgent Care Association (UCA).

What Is Considered a Fever?

A fever occurs when someone’s body temperature increases beyond its usual range, usually due to an illness. You may have heard that 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is the “normal” body temperature, but this can vary from person to person, usually falling somewhere between 97 and 99 degrees among adults, and between 97.9 and 100.4 degrees among babies and children. While mild fevers in adults (those below 103 degrees Fahrenheit) typically don’t require professional care, even slight fevers in infants and toddlers could be a cause for concern.

Could It Be COVID?

Given the ongoing COVID crisis, you may be wondering whether your fever is a sign of COVID. Although a fever can result from COVID, it’s important to remember that there are countless other conditions that could be causing your fever. However, if you’re concerned that you might have COVID, we invite you to schedule a Virtual Visit. After evaluating your condition, we’ll let you know whether you need to stop by our office for a drive-up test.

"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."
