Brookfield, CT (PRWEB) February 02, 2015
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."
