Feel Better Fast With Flu Treatment at Our Urgent Care Clinic in Clarkston, MI
Most of us have experienced the common signs of an influenza infection—the feverish feeling accompanied by a sore throat, body aches, muscle weakness, and other symptoms that make you want to crawl back into bed and stay there. The National Institutes of Health estimates that over 30 million Americans seek flu treatment each year, and more than 200,000 are hospitalized because of flu complications. Although most flu sufferers recover without professional medical treatment, they are likely to be miserable and unable to pursue normal activities for days or even weeks. Fortunately, if you’re in the Clarkston, Michigan, area, you can head to Springfield Urgent Care for treatment at the first sign of the flu. We’re open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week and there’s no need to make an appointment.
What to Expect When Seeking Flu Treatment at Springfield Urgent Care
The symptoms of a cold, flu, and other respiratory illnesses can be quite similar, so it’s important to receive an accurate diagnosis before treatment begins. At Springfield Urgent Care, we offer flu tests that will detect the influenza virus, and we also have medications that can lessen the severity of flu symptoms and even speed up the recovery process. It’s best not to delay seeking treatment when you think you might have the flu because flu medications are most effective when taken early in the illness.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we are asking all patients who have a cough and fever to remain in their vehicles when visiting our Clarkston clinic and call (248) 942-5888 when they arrive. One of our friendly staff members will discuss your symptoms with you and provide instructions regarding your next steps. COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease that causes symptoms similar to the flu, but it’s currently outpacing the flu when it comes to causing serious complications and even death. At Springfield Urgent Care, we provide coronavirus testing as well as testing for flu, strep throat, mononucleosis, and other respiratory illnesses. We continue to offer a wide variety of nonemergency health care services to walk-in patients, so we ask that all patients wear a mask when seeking care at our clinic.
