February 02, 2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
With this year’s severe flu season, PhysicianOne Urgent Care provides convenient and affordable flu care at all of their locations.

Brookfield, CT — According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this year’s flu season could be especially severe, thanks in part to the prevalence of influenza A (H3N2), which has a history of sending more people to the hospital. To help stem the tide, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is providing timely medical care for flu sufferers of all ages.
Typically running from October to May, flu season leaves countless people struggling with high fevers, coughing, body aches and sore throats. However for seniors, pregnant women, young children and people with existing health issues, influenza can be especially threatening. In certain cases even otherwise healthy people can suffer severe complications resulting from a flu infection. For these reasons, it’s important for patients to seek care at the onset of symptoms.
“Until recently, there weren’t many options for flu sufferers except time and rest,” said Dr. Robert Rohatsch, CEO of PhysicianOne Urgent Care. “Nowadays, however, physicians are better able to treat the symptoms of influenza, thanks to modern antiviral drugs. If administered within the first 24 to 48 hours, these medications can reduce the duration and severity of the flu.”
Unfortunately, during the height of flu season, it’s not always easy for patients to secure timely appointments with their family physicians. According to Dr. Rohatsch, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is an ideal alternative, since the facility requires no appointments and is always fully staffed.
“With several locations and convenient hours, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is an ideal option for flu sufferers in need of fast relief,” he said. “We accept the vast majority of insurance plans and provide qualified, experienced physicians for all ages. We also provide flu shots for just $20 if the vaccination isn’t covered by the patient’s insurance plan.”
If you are suffering from the flu, visit your nearest PhysicianOne Urgent Care. You can also take advantage of the center’s online pre-registration option.

"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."
