Did you know more than 3 million respiratory infections are diagnosed each year in the United States alone? With Farragut sitting the foothills of Great Smoky Mountains, the residents of this area have high rate of respiratory infection and other allergy and pollen related medical issues.

A respiratory infection occurs when a viral infection starts to affect the nose, throat and airways. While the condition usually lasts between three and 14 days, it can last longer if your respiratory infection turns into a more serious condition like pneumonia.
The condition can cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from just unpleasant to severe.
There are many different ways a respiratory infection can be diagnosed, including throat swabs and X-rays. Fortunately, our N Campbell Station walk-in clinic has a state-of-the-art lab available seven days a week for the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory infections.
