Your Concierge Doctor Reminds You of Cold and Flu Symptoms

January 19, 2017


No one likes being sick. It is easy to want to find a quick fix to get over a cold or flu. Remember that these illnesses are caused by viruses. Symptoms like fever and sore throat tend to resolve in about 4 days while the cough can persist for weeks. Antibiotics do not work for viruses. For the true influenza there is  anti-viral medication that works best if started early.

As your concierge physician I welcome your questions, comments and suggestions.
