Prompt Flu Treatment for Waltham, MA, Residents

Flu Treatment Waltham MAAre you concerned that you might have the flu? If so, don’t hesitate to seek care. Early influenza (flu) treatment can help you feel better sooner, lower your risk of complications, and ensure the effectiveness of antiviral flu medications like Tamiflu (if appropriate for your condition — not all patients need this type of medication). Fortunately, if you’re in Waltham, Massachusetts, or a nearby community, you can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care for skilled flu treatment.

Flu vs. Common Cold

Many people have a hard time differentiating between the common cold and the flu, both of which are respiratory illnesses caused by viruses (unlike strep throat and pneumonia, which result from bacterial infections). The cold and the flu produce many of the same symptoms, such as:

  • Coughing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sore throat

The flu can also cause fever, chills, achiness, and fatigue. These symptoms can occur with a cold as well, but tend to be more common and more severe in cases of the flu. Flu symptoms usually come on much more suddenly than cold symptoms, too. One of the experienced medical providers at our urgent care center can let you know more definitively whether you have a cold or the flu.

Flu Treatment Available on a Walk-In Basis

When you have the flu, you want to feel better as quickly as possible.

"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."
