About the Common Cold
The common cold, which includes a head cold or a chest cold, is caused by a viral infection and presents with bothersome symptoms, like fever, coughing, sneezing, sore throat, and runny nose. Most people recover from the common cold within a week, but you should contact our practitioner if your symptoms do not improve, your fever persists for three days or more, or you're struggling to breathe or swallow. Schedule an appointment with our primary care team to receive the urgent care you need to fight this illness.

UpCare Clinics Reviews
I had another great experience at UpCare Primary clinic. They are thorough, patient, caring and answered every question. Completely happy with my visit there.
Moved back to KC a year ago and it’s been so difficult establishing primary care. Finding an appointment is hard because it’s 4+ months out, but finding a primary care doctor that cares, is personable, and loves what they do is nearly impossible. I was lucky and fortunate enough to find an appointment with Dr. Priya Gujarati relatively quick. Not only that, but she is the unicorn I mentioned above. She’s friendly, listens intently, and truly cares about what you’re going through. I haven’t felt this comfortable at a doctors office in many years. Glad I found Dr. Priya and the amazing staff at UpCare Clinic!
Great Experience. Very friendly
Doctor G is very very easy to speak with. It was obvious that she was listening to everything I had to say. I will continue to go to UpCare clinic. I also see the dentist at this office as well. It's very convenient having both in the same office.
professional and knowledgeable. clean office and rooms.
