SmartClinic Urgent Care Doctors in West Covina, CA Treat the Cold and Flu in Children and Adults
The Doctors from My SmartClinic in West Covina, CA are ready to treat your cold or flu. When you develop respiratory symptoms like coughing, sneezing or a runny nose, it can be difficult to tell if you have a simple cold or something more serious like the flu. Our medical professionals are here to help you.
Common colds are not treated by antibiotics. They are caused by viruses and antibiotics will not kill those type of germs. Usually a person’s own immune system will fight the infection. We can recommend over the counter medications that may help with your symptoms or, in severe cases, we will prescribe medications to help you with your symptoms.
Influenza, or flu, is a specific viral infection that can be more serious than the common cold or upper respiratory infection. With proper treatment, the symptoms can be less severe and will improve more quickly.
SmartClinic Urgent Care offers on-site rapid influenza testing to determine if you have been infected by the influenza virus. The test involves a nasal swab and you will have a result within 15-20 minutes.
Additionally, our clinic offers influenza vaccinations, or flu shots, to protect you and your loved ones from getting infected during the flu season.
We have 2 locations to serve you. We are open 7 days a week. We serve entire L.A. County.
