Tulsa doctors are staying busy with cold and flu season

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa area doctors say they’ve been especially busy with cold and flu season but hope things will calm down soon.

A primary care physician with Utica Park Clinic says most of his patients have been coming in with respiratory issues such as asthma and bronchitis. He’s also seen a lot of RSV, stomach virus and the flu.

He says he’s certainly staying busy but seems to be less busy than last year due to the success of this year’s flu vaccine.

Dr. Sujan Joshi says he’s started seeing a decrease in flu patients and hopes the worst may be over.

Doctors recommend good hygiene, staying inside to rest with symptoms and getting a flu shot to help prevent the spread of illness. Flu season lasts until late spring and it’s not too late to get your flu shot.
