Flu Treatment in Orlando, FL

Flu Treatment Orlando FLDo you need flu treatment? Symptoms like fever, chills, and body aches as well as a persistent cough, stuffy nose, and sore throat can make you feel downright miserable. But, if you’re a member of Optimum Direct Care – a direct primary care practice in Orlando, Florida, you don’t have to go it alone. That’s because you have unlimited access to our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro, who can provide prompt and effective flu treatment when you need it.

What Does Flu Treatment Involve?

Influenza is a viral infection that generally must run its course. However, Dr. Muzzi can help you feel better in the meantime. For instance, she may recommend a pain reliever, cough suppressant, or decongestant to help you manage your uncomfortable symptoms (the flu virus does not respond to antibiotic treatment).

If you are age 65 or older, pregnant, or have a chronic illness or weakened immune system, you may have an elevated risk of developing flu complications, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. After evaluating your medical history and symptoms, Dr. Muzzi may prescribe an antiviral medication to slow the spread of the infection within your body and help your immune system fight it more effectively.

In any case, flu treatment always involves getting lots of rest and drinking plenty of fluids. This is the best way to accelerate your recovery. Also, the influenza virus is contagious, which is another reason you should stay home and avoid close contact with others for a few days.

“The switch to Dr. Muzzi took some getting used to. I am not accustomed to Doctors actually calling me back promptly nor spending quality time with me analyzing my complete medical make up. In this medical era of 'get them in and get them out quickly', her approach is professionally refreshing”

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
