Sick Visits Q & A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are doctor’s appointments to address specific illnesses or symptoms. Whether or not you know what the illness is, Cross Hope Treatment Centers can confirm the diagnosis before providing any necessary treatment alongside helpful suggestions for home care. 

You might think of sick visits are more of a pediatric necessity, but in reality, both adults and children can benefit from them. Whenever you’re feeling under the weather, the experts at Cross Hope Treatment Centers can give you helpful information on what’s affecting you and how to manage symptoms. 

Cross Hope Treatment Centers are equipped with the latest diagnostic technology to give you quick and accurate results from medical testing. 

When should I schedule sick visits?

It’s up to you to decide when it’s a good time to visit Cross Hope Treatment Centers for a sick visit. Some illnesses are mild enough that you can manage them on your own at home, but long-lasting or severe symptoms should be addressed by a trained medical professional. 

During sick visits, Cross Hope Treatment Centers can evaluate symptoms such as:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Coughing
  • Nasal congestion
  • A sore throat
  • Rashes
  • Fever
  • Stomachache
  • Earache
  • Minor cuts and bruises

If you have any other unusual symptoms that last for longer than three days, you should take it as a sign to schedule a sick visit and see a medical professional right away. 

What happens during a sick visit?

During your sick visits, the experts at Cross Hope Treatment Centers provide non-emergency care for your minor injuries or symptoms of illnesses. Initially, your provider gathers information on your medical history and the symptoms you’re experiencing. They might also question you about the circumstances surrounding your symptoms, like when or where they started. 

After a brief physical exam, your provider might recommend diagnostic testing. Tests like rapid COVID testing or strep tests can identify or rule out specific illnesses that might cause your symptoms. 

As soon as your results are available, which is often during the same visit, your provider can interpret them to you and prescribe any necessary medications. They can also advise you on whether or not your condition is contagious and if you should stay home for a few days to avoid spreading it.
