Sore Throat Treatment in Orlando, FL

Sore Throat Treatment Orlando FLSore throats are very common. Just about everyone is familiar with that ominous throat tickle that comes on very suddenly and then progresses into a full-fledged sore throat within just a few hours. This type of discomfort can occur for a variety of reasons ranging from the common cold and flu to allergies and voice strain. There are more serious causes, too, such as strep, tonsillitis, and mononucleosis.

Whatever the cause, there’s no need to let a sore throat ruin your day. Effective treatment is available, and if you’re a member of Optimum Direct Care in Orlando, Florida, you can receive it any time from our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro.

When Should You Seek Medical Attention for a Sore Throat?

In addition to being painful, a scratchy throat can sometimes lead to complications if left untreated. You should see a doctor right away if your sore throat is very severe, lasts longer than a week, or is accompanied by:

  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Bloody saliva or phlegm
  • Fever
  • An earache
  • Joint pain
  • A skin rash

At Optimum Direct Care, we have an on-site clinical lab, which allows us to provide rapid strep testing and streamlined care for our patients. Once Dr. Muzzi pinpoints the source of your discomfort, she can recommend an appropriate sore throat treatment plan, which may include an antibiotic or pain-relieving medication. In addition, you should rest – both your body and your voice – as well as stay well-hydrated, gargle with warm salt water, and avoid irritants like cigarette smoke until you feel better.

“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.”
