Bronchitis Treatment for Patients in Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Brandon, FL, and the Surrounding Areas
Bronchitis treatment is available seven days a week to patients in the Greater Tampa Bay area at South Tampa Immediate Care. Bronchitis is prevalent during cold and flu season and often develops after an upper respiratory infection, such as the common cold. If you experience painful coughing accompanied by wheezing, fever, chills, muscle aches, sore throat, nasal congestion, or fatigue, you may have bronchitis.
In some cases, acute bronchitis will resolve on its own, but because severe complications can sometimes develop, it is important to see a qualified, experienced physician for evaluation and bronchitis treatment, and also to rule out more serious conditions, such as pneumonia. For bronchitis treatment and other non-urgent medical needs, the Board-certified and Board-eligible doctors at South Tampa Immediate Care are available to see you at your convenience, and you never need an appointment.
In providing bronchitis treatment, the attentive medical staff at South Tampa Immediate Care may:
Order and perform a chest X-ray on-site to rule out the possibility of other, more serious conditions
Take a sputum culture to test for the presence of bacteria
Perform a pulmonary function test to check for signs of asthma or emphysema
Prescribe appropriate medications to help suppress coughing and wheezing, reduce fever, and ease muscle aches
Monitor your symptoms to ensure you are responding to treatment
