Get a Flu Test at Our Brockton, MA, Urgent Care Center
If you’re experiencing the hallmark symptoms of influenza (the flu)—including a fever, chills, a headache, muscle aches, fatigue, congestion, coughing, and a sore throat—you may want to take a flu test. Fortunately, if you’re in Brockton, Massachusetts, you won’t need to travel far for one of these tests—PhysicianOne Urgent Care proudly offers rapid flu tests at our local office.
Do You Need an Influenza Test?
Not everyone who’s experiencing the symptoms listed above requires a flu test. In fact, in many cases, the experienced providers at PhysicianOne Urgent Care are able to diagnose patients with the flu based on their symptoms alone, without the need for any additional testing. When you visit us for flu diagnosis and treatment, we’ll let you know whether you’re a candidate for a flu test.
How Long Does a Flu Test Take?
Because PhysicianOne Urgent Care uses rapid flu tests, the process doesn’t take long at all. We’ll use a cotton swab to collect a mucus sample from your nose or throat, then we’ll test the sample at our on-site lab. We’re often able to provide patients with flu test results in as little as 15 to 20 minutes.
Flu Tests Available 365 Days Per Year
PhysicianOne Urgent Care is the convenient choice for flu tests and all of your other immediate care needs. We’re open every day of the year with extended hours, and because we offer flu tests on a walk-in basis, you won’t need to bother making an appointment ahead of time (you still have the option of scheduling a visit, if desired).
