Sick Visits Q & A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are medical appointments you make when you’re not feeling well or if you have pain or other unexplained symptoms from an illness or an injury.

The providers at Zidon Internal Medicine offer both diagnostic testing services and customized care plans for adults to treat a variety of acute illnesses, so you can feel better fast. Through in-office appointments and online virtual sick visits, they can address:

  • Flu
  • Colds
  • COVID-19
  • Strep throat
  • Pneumonia
  • Respiratory infection

The providers can also address cuts, sprains, and other minor injuries in-office to prevent complications. If you need additional medical care, they can refer you to a specialist for further evaluation and treatment.

When should I schedule a sick visit?

You should schedule a sick visit at Zidon Internal Medicine if you have symptoms that you can’t treat on your own with over-the-counter medications and rest. You should also book an appointment if your symptoms continue to worsen, even with treatment.

Symptoms that may require medical attention include:

  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Chest pain
  • Joint pain
  • Nasal congestion
  • Shortness of breath

The providers can meet with you initially through a convenient, online platform to assess your symptoms and determine if you need to be seen in the office.

What can I expect during a sick visit?

During a sick visit, the Zidon Internal Medicine providers spend time learning more about your symptoms, your medical history, and your existing health.

They perform a physical exam, checking for signs of swelling, infection, or respiratory distress. The providers may request bloodwork, flu tests, COVID-19 tests, or other diagnostic testing to confirm your diagnosis.

Based on the results of your testing, the providers can prescribe medications and recommend dietary and lifestyle changes that will help you feel better. If testing reveals that you have more serious health issues, the providers offer chronic disease management services to keep your condition well-controlled.

To lessen the severity of infections with viruses like the flu and COVID-19, Zidon Internal Medicine offers vaccinations in-office. The providers can also make sure you’re up-to-date with other necessary immunizations that protect against contagious diseases.

To schedule a sick visit, call Zidon Internal Medicine today or request an appointment online.
