Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are appointments you schedule when you’re experiencing pain or other symptoms that cause you to feel unwell.

The team at Forward Care Family Practice has an on-site medical lab to identify the underlying cause of your symptoms. They can diagnose and treat a wide variety of acute illnesses, including:

  • Cough
  • Earaches
  • Abscesses
  • Bronchitis
  • Colds and flu
  • Skin rashes
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Athlete’s foot and other infections

The team also treats recurrent or chronic conditions like asthma, migraines and headaches, and sinus infections. They provide on-site testing and treatment services for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like herpes and chlamydia.

When should I schedule a sick visit?

If you’re not feeling well but aren’t getting better with over-the-counter medications and rest, you can schedule a consultation at Forward Care Family Practice. The team can meet with you in-office or online through the telehealth platform to discuss your symptoms and see if you need further testing.

The office is open seven days a week with extended hours on Mondays and Tuesdays. The on-site medical lab provides fast results for a variety of tests. Once the team better understands what’s causing your symptoms, they customize a treatment plan to help you feel better.

Forward Care Family Practice also offers on-site electrocardiogram (EKG) testing to identify symptoms that affect your heart, such as shortness of breath and chest discomfort.

If you have a medical emergency, like a head injury, open fracture, or chest pain, you should go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 for help.

What treatment options are available during sick visits?

After a comprehensive physical and a review of your symptoms, the team at Forward Care Family Practice can recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications to relieve your pain and other symptoms.

They can also provide wound care resources like stitches and staples to reduce your risk for complications. And, the team can prescribe a course of antibiotics to treat and prevent infections.

If your symptoms relate to chronic conditions like allergies or asthma, the team customizes a long-term care plan to help you keep your symptoms under control. They can also recommend ways to avoid allergy and asthma triggers through lifestyle changes.
