Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are medical examinations that help your primary care specialist figure out the cause of an illness and develop a personalized treatment plan for symptom relief. You might schedule a sick visit if you have:

  • A high or long-lasting fever
  • Migraines, pain, or body aches
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Ear pain, nasal pain, or congestion
  • Urinary problems
  • A severe cough
  • Allergy symptoms
  • Strains or sprains
  • Lacerations or wounds
  • A widespread rash

Some illnesses go away on their own over time if you get plenty of rest and drink a lot of fluids. In other instances, however, medical intervention is necessary to prevent complications, offer you symptom relief, and speed up your recovery.

What happens during a sick visit?

When you arrive at Raintree Healthcare for a sick visit, your provider weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and other vital signs. They review your symptoms and evaluate your eyes, ears, nose, throat, breathing, heartbeat, and abdomen.

Your primary care specialist might recommend diagnostic tests like urine tests, nasal or throat swabs, blood tests, allergy tests, breathing tests, or imaging procedures to make a diagnosis and develop your personalized treatment plan.

Will I require treatment?

Depending on the type and severity of an illness, your provider might recommend one or more of the following treatments.

At-home remedies

Sometimes, getting plenty of rest and drinking fluids is the best way to recover from an illness at home. Your doctor might also recommend nasal rinses or sprays to reduce congestion.

Medications

Your Raintree Healthcare provider might suggest antibiotics, over-the-counter medicines, sprays, liquid medicines, drops, shots, or an inhaler to treat your condition and offer you symptom relief.

Injury care

If you require a cast, brace, or stitches because of an injury, your primary care specialist treats you to optimize recovery and relieve pain.

Specialist referrals

If you or your child has a complex medical condition requiring care from a specialist, the Raintree Healthcare team can refer you to a qualified professional in your area.
