Feel Better Fast With Walk-In Flu Treatment at Our Urgent Care Location in White Lake, MI
When you notice the first signs of a flu infection—body aches and chills, a sore throat, and a fever—you may be tempted to tough it out on your own without seeking flu treatment. After all, no one who’s sick likes sitting in a doctor’s office or emergency room queue for hours, waiting to be seen without an appointment. But postponing treatment isn’t a good idea, either. For one thing, you may not have the flu—there are other respiratory infections that present similar symptoms and may be more threatening than influenza. For another thing, even though most healthy people can recover from the flu without medical treatment, that’s not a given. Thousands of people are hospitalized because of flu complications every year. Finally, if you receive antiviral flu treatment in the early stages of the infection, it can reduce the severity of your symptoms and significantly shorten your recovery time.
If you live in the White Lake, Michigan, area, you shouldn’t hesitate to seek flu treatment at Springfield Urgent Care. We treat infants, children, and adults for flu infections on a walk-in basis, and our wait times are short. Moreover, we’re open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, including weekends, which means you can get flu treatment in the evenings and Saturday or Sunday, whenever your symptoms begin.
What to Expect With Flu Treatment at Springfield Urgent Care
Effective flu treatment starts with clinical testing to make sure you have the flu and not some other type of viral infection, such as COVID-19. Fortunately, our White Lake urgent care location has an in-house testing lab, allowing our highly skilled medical practitioners to identify flu infections within minutes. We also offer testing for mononucleosis, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and other viral infections that can cause flu-like symptoms. And we can test for asymptomatic COVID-19 by appointment.
If testing reveals that you have the flu, you may receive a prescription for an antiviral drug that can help you get back on your feet fast.
