Man having a cold

If you suffer from flu-like symptoms, we may recommend a test for influenza A and B. Because we perform the CDC-recommended rapid testing for influenza A and B, your results will be ready within 15-20 minutes. If you opt for conventional influenza testing, the test results can be identified within one day. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, our experienced Upper East Side doctor may recommend influenza A and B testing:

  • Fever
  • Dry cough
  • Headache
  • Severe aches and pains in the joints and muscles, as well as around the eyes
  • General weakness
  • Warm, flushed skin and red, watery eyes

It is important to have an influenza A and B test conducted within 48 hours of the onset of flu-like symptoms in order to properly diagnose, monitor, and treat the medical condition. If you suffer from flu-like symptoms, we encourage you to contact our medical office in New York to schedule your appointment for influenza A and B testing. Dr. Abroon and his medical team look forward to caring for you!

Competent and efficient. Gave me a correct diagnosis and good advice.
