I went to the Minute Clinic with severe congestion, fluid in my ears, sore throat and 99.8 fever. It took all the strength I had to get out of bed and drive there.
While examing me the doctor also said I had a lot of fluid in my ears. She told me it was a bacterial infection and to take mucinex. If I wasn't better in 5 to 7 days to return and she'd look into prescribing me an antibiotic. The papers I left with even read "acute upper respiratory infection, fever - unspecified fever cause, cough, acute pharyngitis".
I asked if she'd at least prescribe something for the fluid in my ears and she said no. By the time I returned home my fever was 101.6. I ended up having to make an appt with my family doctor who worked me in her schedule that afternoon who could not believe they sent me home with no antibiotic. My family doctor prescribed me zithromax for the bacterial infection and within less than 24 hours my fever was gone and I felt miraculously better.
I cannot believe I spent $30 for a doctor to tell me to take mucinex and if I wasn't better in 5 to 7 days to return. There was absolutely no medical treatment whatsoever in my visit to the Minute Clinic!
