Diagnosing Fever Symptoms in Manchester, CT
PhysicianOne Urgent Care evaluates and treats fever symptoms at our facility in Manchester, Connecticut. While most mild-to-moderate fevers can be treated at home, there are times when receiving professional medical treatment may be recommended. For example, if your fever symptoms not only include an elevated body temperature but also a severe headache, a stiff neck, sensitivity to bright light, dizziness, or stomach pains, you may be dealing with an underlying illness that needs to be treated. You should also come to our urgent care center if your fever is above 103°F or you have had a fever for three days or longer.
Our Fever Treatment Process
Every patient who comes to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt medical care is seen by one of our skilled providers. The provider you see will take your temperature and discuss the fever symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Then, he or she may recommend a diagnostic test to determine the underlying cause of your fever, such as a bacterial infection that may need antibiotics to clear up.
At the end of your visit, you will be given a comprehensive treatment plan that details everything you should do as you recover from your fever symptoms.
