What are sick visits?

Sick visits are medical appointments you attend to gain insight into new or worsening symptoms. Family Medical Clinic can diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses and minor injuries using advanced testing and care. 

Any time you or a family member is not feeling well, Family Medical Clinic encourages you to schedule an appointment or visit as a walk-in. Using the in-house laboratory, the team can rule out possible causes of your symptoms and make an accurate diagnosis. They also provide any necessary treatment. 

Your provider at Family Medical Clinic ensures you feel like a priority as you get the care you need. They might also follow up with you later to make sure any treatment you get is effective. 

When should I book a sick visit?

You should visit Family Medical Clinic for a sick visit when you have new or unusual symptoms. Whether your concerns are mild or moderate, your provider at Family Medical Clinic can look for answers and determine their cause. 

Family Medical Clinic accepts walk-ins, but you can book an appointment if your medical concern is not urgent. You should come in for a sick visit when you experience:

  • A fever
  • Stomachache

What happens during sick visits?

Sick visits at Family Medical Clinic are brief yet detailed. Your provider asks about your symptoms and when they started. They review your medical history for any clues about your health and may recommend testing in the comprehensive lab. 

Once you get any necessary test results, your provider reviews them to diagnose or rule out possible illnesses. They can then make treatment recommendations. You might receive prescription medications or advice on managing your symptoms at home. 

If you need specialty care, Family Medical Clinic can collaborate with specialists or make referrals according to your needs.
