Pneumonia treatment is conveniently available to patients throughout the Tampa Bay area at South Tampa Immediate Care. If you experience shaking chills followed by a high fever, chest pain, coughing, nausea, or shortness of breath, you may have pneumonia. Although in extreme cases pneumonia can be life-threatening, the good news is that many patients do not require hospitalization if they are diagnosed and treated early on.
The best approach for pneumonia treatment varies based upon a number of factors unique to each individual, such as the patient’s age and general health, the microorganism causing the illness, and the setting within which the infection developed. Therefore, if you think you might have pneumonia, it is important to immediately see a qualified, experienced physician who will evaluate your condition and prescribe an appropriate pneumonia treatment. Do not delay! The sooner you seek medical attention, the sooner you will feel better.
