Our fully equipped immediate care center in Waltham, Massachusetts, is open 365 days per year during extended hours, so you won’t have to shuffle around your schedule to speak with a medical professional.

What Are the Symptoms of Pneumonia?

Very mild cases of pneumonia (often referred to as walking pneumonia) can feel like a common cold. In other cases, symptoms may be more pronounced and involve:

  • A persistent cough that may produce mucus
  • Chest tightness that worsens when coughing or breathing deeply
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever, sweating, or chills
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Headache

When Should I Seek Treatment for Pneumonia?

It’s a good idea to visit a reputable immediate care provider like PhysicianOne Urgent Care if your pneumonia symptoms persist for more than a few days or you experience a fever that stays around 102 degrees Fahrenheit. In the event that someone around you displays signs of a life-threatening lung infection—such as confusion, trouble breathing, chest pain, and bluish lips or fingernails—call 911 or head straight to the nearest emergency room.

"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."
