Sick Visits Q & A

What is a sick visit?

Most people see their doctor for one of two reasons. In the first case, they’re due for preventive care like a yearly wellness exam. In the second, they have a pressing health concern. While you have the luxury of flexible scheduling your preventive care, things change when you’re sick. You want to get into your doctor as quickly as possible.

Specially tailored to patients who are ill and are seeking treatment, these appointments are for people who are feeling unwell and want relief — fast. Some of the most common reasons patients use sick visit appointments include:

  • Cough
  • Cold
  • Flu
  • Fever
  • Strep throat
  • Headaches

What should I expect during a sick visit?

Your sick visit is designed to get you feeling better as quickly as possible. While your NY Family Docs practitioner will probably perform some necessary health measures — like checking your vitals and listening to your lungs with a stethoscope. Instead, they use each action they take during a sick visit to more accurately diagnose your illness and deliver the most effective treatment.

A key component of your sick visit is your description of your symptoms. Telling your NY Family Docs practitioner about how you’re feeling helps them tailor treatment to address your most unwelcome symptoms.

Will I get treatment during a sick visit?

If there’s something your NY Family Docs practitioner can do during your appointment to give you relief, he or she will deliver that treatment. In most cases, however, your appointment gives your doctor time to put together a personalized treatment plan for you. That might include medication, lifestyle recommendations like resting for a few days, or actions you can take once you’re home to minimize your symptoms.

NY Family Docs is committed to helping their sick patients feel better as quickly as possible. The treatments they offer during sick visits are tailored to your needs and designed to give you relief.
