Cough Treatment

If you live in Effingham, Taylorville, Litchfield or another nearby community and have a cough that requires medical treatment, then look to the physician-led team at Central Illinois Urgent Care. We are an urgent care clinic that offers affordable health care and treatment for all non-life-threatening conditions that require immediate attention. Rather than waiting for hours in an emergency room for a non-emergency situation or trying to find time in your busy schedule to make an appointment with your primary care provider, visit Central Illinois Urgent Care today to receive treatment for a bothersome cough or other cold and flu symptoms that just won’t go away.

A cough is the body’s way of clearing your lungs and upper airway passages of mucus and other foreign substances, which can impair your ability to breathe properly. In most cases, a trip to the doctor can be avoided with plenty of rest and fluids; however, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms with your cough, treatment from a physician may be necessary:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing up blood, mucus, or a mixture of both
  • Mucus that is green, tan, or yellow
  • Fever, chest pains, or chills
  • A cough that lasts for longer than a couple of weeks

At Central Illinois Urgent Care, we can provide residents of Effingham, Taylorville, Litchfield, and all the surrounding areas with convenient and efficient cough treatment options. Whether you need something to soothe your throat or reduce any cough-related pain, or you think you may have a more serious condition such as bronchitis or pneumonia, we are available to help you seven days a week with extended hours and no appointment required.

For more information, contact or stop by Central Illinois Urgent Care today. We proudly provide cough treatment to residents throughout Effingham, Taylorville, Litchfield and surrounding communities.

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.
