Respiratory Infection Treatment

Professional Respiratory Infection Treatment in Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield

If you’re in need of respiratory infection treatment in the Effingham, Taylorville, or Litchfield areas, and you aren’t quite sure where to turn, put your trust in the team at Central Illinois Urgent Care. Our urgent care center is open seven days a week to provide you with the treatment you need to overcome your nagging cold. No appointment is needed to see our team and in most cases you can expect to be in and out in only about an hour. The entire process couldn’t be easier or more convenient.

More often than not respiratory infection treatment is focused primarily on symptom management. Unless a bacterial infection is presumed to be causing the patient’s symptoms, antibiotics and most other prescription medications aren’t required. That said, it can be extremely helpful if you are experiencing the symptoms of a cold or flu to speak with a medical professional to accurately diagnose the source of your discomfort and discuss the treatment options that are available to you. Additionally, at Central Illinois Urgent Care, we have a robust lab on-site, which can help us confirm a flu diagnosis, or test for other potential illnesses like sinus infections, strep throat, or mono.

In the event that a respiratory infection is confirmed, treatment options will be discussed at length with you. These might include:

  • Rest with excused absence from work or school
  • Consumption of fluids
  • Over-the-counter cold medicines
  • Tylenol to reduce fevers
  • Antihistamines or decongestants to alleviate congestion
  • And other similar options

If you require respiratory infection treatment in the Effingham, Taylorville, or Litchfield communities, stop by Central Illinois Urgent Care. No appointment is needed, simply stop by our urgent care center and meet with a member of our physician-led team when it’s convenient for you. Contact us today to learn more.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place: from the staff, the cleanliness, the professional attitudes, the no-wait time, the kind and caring Dr. Toofan, to the sticker on the way out... excellent! Very impressed.

Love love this place!! I have been taking my daughter here when she is sick since she was 3 months old! They give me what I need and if you don't need it they don't! I trust them very much! This place is a lot more money then other places in regards to my insurance coverage, but you can't buy trust!

I can't give enough stars to this AMAZING place! We got in and out within 30 minutes. Staff was so polite and nice. Dr. Beth was great with my little one. Not only was our experience in the facility a great one, but Dr. Beth personally called me the next day to check on my Baby. That meant a lot to me. I have a hard time trusting Drs that aren't our regular one, but I definitely will be revisiting here if ever needed.

I just left here and although I'm sick with BRONCHITIS my soul was happy to have Dr. Toofan, Paul MD as my provider today. He was very attentive and friendly. The staff was also amazingly friendly. The facility is absolutely gorgeous for an express care clinic!!!

My little one was sick, whilst we were out of town on a Sunday. I had seen this Urgent Care from the interstate & decided to see if they were open. They were & even opened the door a few min. early to let us in. The office was clean, & the staff was very kind & courteous. Dr. Toofan was great with my daughter (he has kids) & got us in and out very quickly. They had her RX available there, if we didn't want to go to a pharmacy. Having just received a call (just over 24 hours from the initial visit) from the Dr. (not from the receptionist or even a nurse) to see how things were going, I felt that a review was definitely deserved. This is exactly what an Urgent Care should be!

I prefer Taylorville Urgent Care over the ER. You are greeted the second you come through the door and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes, if that to be seen. The staff is very friendly, well experienced, professional, and knowledgeable. They are very thorough in their workup and treatment of your health issue. Further, medial supplies, if needed, are provided for your injuries that the hospital will not provide. The staff seems to be genuinely concerned about providing the best care possible. I consider this service to be state of the art. I'm extremely happy they are here. This care facility is definitely an asset to Taylorville.

Thank you Bethany for your help today! The options of getting prescriptions filled there was definitely cheaper on me. The staff was all great as well this was my first visit.
