What Are Respiratory Viruses?
A respiratory virus is an acute illness caused by a variety of viruses that affect the upper respiratory tract. They are spread by droplets coughed or sneezed into the air and then inhaled, or indirectly by contaminated hands coming in contact with the nose or eyes. When you have a respiratory virus, you may experience a fever, congestion, sneezing, cough, sinus pain or pressure, sore throat, body aches, and headache. At Rockwall Rapid Care, our highly skilled medical team treats respiratory viruses, including common colds, influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and COVID-19. We offer urgent care appointments so you can receive treatment quickly. Contact our office in Rockwall, TX to schedule a visit for yourself or your child.
How Are Respiratory Viruses Treated?
While mild respiratory viruses often resolve with at-home care, like getting lots of rest and drinking plenty of fluids, you might want to seek professional treatment for symptoms that continue to worsen, especially if you have a hard time breathing. During an urgent care appointment at Rockwall Rapid Care, our team will assess your symptoms and perform any required testing in order to provide a diagnosis. We have an in-house imaging lab where chest x-rays can be performed if needed. We also offer COVID-19, flu, and strep testing. To help you get relief from uncomfortable symptoms, we may recommend over-the-counter medications, such as pain relievers, nasal decongestants, and cough suppressants. If you have a bacterial infection, a course of antibiotics can be prescribed.
Rockwall Rapid Care Reviews
I took a good fall yesterday & needed to get some X-rays done. After calling Carenow with a 4 hr wait & Medpost no X-rays that day, I stumbled across this place. It had 5 star reviews too. I decided to go & the appt process was super easy, checking in was a breeze, ZERO WAIT TIME (huge perk), the rooms were high tech, clean, and awesome chairs. I was in & out with X-rays done in 30 min!! I am a huge fan now & I will be singing their praises as they are much deserved. Thank you to the staff for your fast & efficient work.
Needed a sports physical at the last minute and they came to the rescue!
AMAZING experience! Brought my toddler for shots & Craig did an incredible job. No tears were shed. We will be back!
They were quick, friendly and knowledgeable.
Got an appointment so easily and got to stay in my car the whole visit. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and listened to all of my concerns. Will definitely be going back when I need to.
