Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

As the name implies, a sick visit is an appointment at SteadFast Primary Care focused on addressing a current injury or illness. When you arrive, Dr. Los reviews your medical records and discusses your symptoms. It’s important to share a list of all medications and supplements you’re taking, as well as any conditions you are currently in treatment for.

A physical exam usually follows, giving Dr. Los an opportunity to assess your condition and determine the source of your discomfort. In some cases, lab testing will give greater insight into how your body is functioning and guide the diagnostic process.

What kinds of issues can be treated during sick visits?

Dr. Los can address many health issues during a sick visit. Some of the reasons people schedule these visits include:

  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Allergic reaction
  • Skin rash
  • Sprains and strains
  • Abrasions and minor lacerations
  • Ear pain
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Asthma attack

These are just some of the conditions that Dr. Los can assess during a sick visit. 

How do I know when to schedule a sick visit?

Knowing when to come in for medical care isn’t always easy. Many people prefer to stay home and wait out their symptoms, hoping their condition will improve with a few days of rest and self-care.

The human body is an amazing thing, with an impressive ability for self-healing. That said, there is no reason to feel terrible while you wait for nature to take its course. Dr. Los can treat many symptoms to help you feel better while you recover. 

It’s also important to note that many symptoms of common illnesses can actually indicate a far more serious condition. Coming in for a sick visit allows Dr. Los to screen for various health problems and begin a customized treatment plan when necessary. 

In short, if you are in pain or are significantly uncomfortable, coming in for a sick visit can provide relief. Even more importantly, seeing Dr. Los can provide the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are taking care of your health needs. 

Booking a sick visit is as simple as a phone call to check availability for a same-day visit. Online scheduling is always available for less urgent booking needs.
