When you come to a Riverview Health primary care location with suspected pneumonia, our primary care physicians can help you get an accurate diagnosis and perform an X-ray to determine if there’s an infection in your lungs.

If you do have an infection, our doctors can recommend an appropriate course of treatment, such as antibiotics. Antibiotics are often used to treat pneumonia caused by bacteria. The type of antibiotic you’re prescribed depends on the bacteria that caused the pneumonia. It’s important to take antibiotics as directed, or your pneumonia may return. Viral pneumonia is treated with antiviral medicine.

If you’re having symptoms of pneumonia and at-home medicines like fever reducers haven’t helped, don’t continue to suffer. Find a Riverview Health primary care physician that’s convenient to you and request an appointment today by calling 317.565.0515 or by completing an appointment request form.
