Sick Visits Q & A

What is a sick visit?

Schedule a sick visit when you have symptoms of an unexpected illness or injury. You may also come in for a sick visit if you’re experiencing concerns with a chronic condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

A Plus Medical offers a staff with years of training, so it can manage all of your health needs when you’re well and when you’re sick.

Same-day visits and walk-ins are welcome, so you don’t have to spend hours in an emergency room waiting area when you feel poorly. The practice offers an in-house lab, so results of blood tests, saliva swabs, and urine tests come back quickly. This hastens your diagnosis and relevant treatment.

When should I schedule a sick visit?

A Plus Medical provides comprehensive care for many unexpected health issues. Some of the most common conditions that benefit from a sick visit include:

  • Flu
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Sinus infection
  • Strep throat
  • Digestive ailments, such as food poisoning or stomach flu

If you have symptoms that suggest COVID 19 or the common cold, you should schedule a sick visit. 

How do I know I need medical care for my symptoms?

You may be tempted to manage your illness at home, but getting professional care can help you heal faster. If your symptoms linger for more than two days or seem to be getting worse, you benefit from an evaluation at A Plus Medical.

Symptoms that indicate you should schedule a sick visit include:

  • Chronic cough
  • Severe throat pain
  • Mild or moderate asthma attack
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Prolonged fever
  • Flu-like symptoms (fever, body aches)
  • Extreme fatigue or weakness

Trouble managing a chronic illness also benefits from a sick visit. If you have diabetes, for example, and your blood sugar levels are running high, don’t wait for your next check-up — schedule an appointment today.  

A Plus Medical can also provide documentation that you’ve adequately recovered from sickness if that’s needed for a return to work, sports, or school.
