What are sick visits?

Sick visits are urgent medical care that everybody needs occasionally. Sickness is unpredictable, and it seems to happen at the worst possible times. 

Healthcare Now focuses on making sickness easier to manage through sick visits. These visits can also significantly reduce the length of your illness so you start recovering faster. 

What kind of conditions do sick visits address? 

Sick visits can help with all of the most common symptoms and illnesses in adults and kids, including: 

  • Colds
  • Flu
  • Sore throat
  • Earache
  • Strep throat
  • Bronchitis
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Rashes
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Yeast infections and other vaginal infections
  • Headaches
  • Stomach pain
  • Abdominal pain

Sick visits also cover minor injuries, such as cuts, scrapes, sprains, strains, and sports injuries. 

What can I expect during sick visits?

When you or someone in your family is sick, the Healthcare Now team arranges a same-day appointment. The visit usually involves an exam, a review of all of your symptoms, and a medical history review. 

In many cases, patients who come in for sick visits need lab testing. The practice offers in-office lab testing so you can get fast results and start treatment as quickly as possible. For example, you can get flu test results in just 15 minutes and strep throat test results in five minutes. 

If you need more comprehensive bloodwork to investigate a deeper problem, results are usually available in 48 hours. 

Depending on the situation, you might need an X-ray, such as a chest or ankle X-ray, to pinpoint an unhealthy or injured area that’s not detectable during a physical exam. 

Patients typically get an illness diagnosis that day. Healthcare Now provides a treatment plan right away. Many people get a combination of prescription medicine, over-the-counter medicine, recommendations for rest, and other recovery care at home. If you’re injured, you may need a brace or splint. 

Occasionally, patients might need office-based procedures. Examples include getting sutures to close a wound or removal of an embedded splinter. 

Healthcare Now provides quick and easy sick visits in the Miami office. They’re primary care providers who treat your illnesses and injuries as a top priority, so call the office or click the scheduling feature for help now.
