The first thing to know about fever is that it is a symptom rather than a condition. A high fever can be a sign that the body is fighting some other ailment.

If you have a high fever accompanied by other symptoms, it is recommended you visit the ERgent Care Center immediately. Our doctors will be able to diagnose the underlying problem, treating it as well as your fever.

If you are experiencing these symptoms and believe you may have pneumonia, visit ERgent Care Center in Jacksonville today. Our urgent care clinic physicians can both diagnose and treat pneumonia.
Upper Respiratory Infections
Upper respiratory infections represent a variety of acute illnesses or complications that are most often caused by a secondary infection to a rhinovirus or influenza. Since it seldom makes a difference in the treatment regimen, identification* of the specific viral cause is not usually necessary. Symptomatic support usually depends upon the location of the subsequent infection. In some cases, influenza may be suspected due to the time of year or a recent outbreak of flu in the area, our physician will order a flu test and antiviral medications may be prescribed. Your doctor can diagnose whether you have a cold or influenza. He or she may order a throat culture or blood count, to determine the severity of the condition and identify other problems. If your physician suspects that your upper respiratory infection has spread to your lungs, an x-ray may be needed to check for pleurisy or pneumonia.
Urinary Tract Infections
Urinary tract infections, or UTIs, are quite common and easily treatable if diagnosed early. A professional diagnosis will be required as a prescription for antibiotics is necessary to treat this bacterial infection. If left untreated the infection can spread to the kidneys at which point oral antibiotics will not be effective. Don't wait, visit our urgent care clinic now to treat your urinary tract infection.
Was dreading going to an urgent care office. The ones I've been to have always been dirty, busy and understaffed. Chose Ergent Care because they have access to my medical record. Waiting area was clean, front desk was courteous, back office was clean, polite and fast. Will def go back if the need arises.
