The flu isn’t the only respiratory illness that’s known to strike in the fall and winter months.  Pneumonia—an infection of the lung’s air sacs—affects millions of Americans during flu season and beyond, causing unpleasant symptoms that can include frequent coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, fever, and chest tightness. If you live in the Brockton, Massachusetts, area and need walk-in treatment for bothersome pneumonia symptoms, PhysicianOne Urgent Care can help.

When to Seek Medical Treatment for Pneumonia Symptoms

It’s especially important to seek professional treatment for pneumonia if you’re older than 65 or have an underlying health condition that impacts your immune system.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
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!"

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
