Upper Respiratory Infections

About this service

An upper respiratory infection — the good old-fashioned common cold — occurs when viruses attack the nose, throat and chest. Symptoms typically include runny nose, coughing and sneezing, sore throat and fever. Since a cold and the flu share the same symptoms, it can be hard to figure out which one you have. We can help!

What to know before your visit

Patients with the following may be directed to another health care provider:

  • Severe shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Severe chest pain, or pressure or pain radiating to your jaw, neck or arm
  • Cough lasting more than 3 weeks
