Shingles

Convenient treatment for a painful condition

Learn how to prepare for your visit, how to get the most out of it and about any care restrictions here.

Shingles is a painful rash caused by the virus herpes zoster, the same virus that causes chicken pox. If you had chicken pox as a child, you could develop shingles as an adult. We can examine your rash and provide treatment with either over-the-counter products or a prescription if needed.

What to know before your visit

Our practitioners do not offer the shingles vaccination.

Patients with the following may be directed to another health care provider:

  • Blisters around the eye or nose
  • Stiff neck, decrease in vision, confusion or unusual drowsiness
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures

What to expect at your visit

  1. Sign in at the electronic kiosk to see a nurse practitioner or physician assistant.* No appointment necessary.
  2. Your practitioner will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, conduct a visual exam of the infected area and provide a personalized treatment plan. This could include over-the-counter or prescription medication including antiviral medicines and pain relievers.
  3. At the end of your visit, your practitioner will provide you with a summary, a receipt and educational material.
  4. The summary of your visit can be sent to your primary care provider with your permission.
