Upper respiratory viruses generally cause the following symptoms:

  • Cough

  • Sinus infection (sinusitis)
  • The common cold
  • Pharyngitis(sore throat)

While upper respiratory viruses generally resolve with rest, hydration, and over-the-counter pain relievers, some groups are more at risk of complications. These groups include those with compromised immune systems, older adults, and children.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
