Cold & Flu

Although we often use the terms “cold” and “flu” interchangeably, they are two different types of viruses. Colds are caused by a virus called rhinovirus, and flu is caused by an influenza virus. Although both viruses can cause similar symptoms, flu is usually more severe. There is no cure for either colds or the flu, but we offer simple remedies and over-the-counter medications to alleviate the symptoms and speed up recovery.


In some cases, coughing is the body’s way of getting rid of something irritating the throat, such as smoke or dust. But sometimes, coughing can signify a more serious condition, such as bronchitis or pneumonia. If your cough keeps you from sleeping or interfering with your daily activities, it is important to see a doctor. We can diagnose the root cause of your cough and prescribe medications to alleviate symptoms.

Sore Throat

A sore throat is a very common problem that can be caused by many different things. It can be a symptom of a cold or flu, or it can be caused by other things like allergies, pollution, or even smoke.

If your sore throat is severe or if it lasts for more than a few days, we can perform tests to identify the root cause and curate a treatment plan, which may include lifestyle remedies and over-the-counter medications.


A fever signifies your body is fighting an infection or other illness. To treat a fever, the first step is to identify the underlying cause. Depending on whether you have a bacterial infection or viral infection, we may offer antibiotics or medications that alleviate symptoms. If your fever is accompanied by other severe symptoms, such as chest pain or difficulty breathing, seek medical help immediately.


Cuts are a common injury that can range from a minor scrape to a deep laceration. Treatment depends on the severity of the injury. If you have a severe cut, we can clean the wound, stop bleeding, and apply antibiotic ointments to prevent infections. You must seek medical attention if your cut is more than ½ inch deep or if you have persistent bleeding that doesn’t stop.


Burns can be extremely painful and require special medical attention. Treatment for burns depends on the severity of the burn. For minor burns, hold the affected area under cool running water for at least five minutes and apply a cooling ointment or cream.

But if your burn is severe, you must seek medical attention immediately. We assess the severity of the burn and provide solutions to alleviate pain and prevent further complications.


Rashes are very common, and there are many different types. Numerous over-the-counter creams and ointments can soothe a rash. If your rash is itchy, an antihistamine may help. If you have a more severe rash, you may need a prescription-strength cream or oral medication. We assess your rashes, determine the root cause, and offer treatments.

Sprains & Strains

Sprains and strains are common injuries. A sprain is a stretching or tearing of a ligament, the tissues that connect bones to one another. A strain is a stretching or tearing of a muscle or tendon, the tissues that connect muscle to bone.

Treatment usually involves rest, ice, physical therapy, and over-the-counter pain medications. We assess your strains and sprains and help you recover quickly.
