Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are medical appointments that address new or worsening health symptoms or injuries. During these visits, your provider focuses on your acute issue, helping relieve your symptoms quickly.

At Brunswick Medical we  understand that illnesses and injuries are unpredictable, so our schedules are built to accommodate walk-ins. 

Should I schedule sick visits when I have a sore throat?

You should schedule a sick visit at Brunswick Medical if you have a sore throat that’s making it hard to eat or drink, is getting worse, or is causing a fever.

A sore throat is a common symptom of many acute health conditions, including the flu, the common cold, and strep throat. Knowing the cause of your throat pain ensures that you get the proper treatment so that you can start feeling better.

Other conditions that benefit from a sick visit  include:

  • High fever
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Earaches
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Sprains or strains
  • Minor cuts or lacerations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rashes
  • Allergies
  • Headaches or migraines

You should also schedule a sick visit if you’re having a hard time managing a chronic disease, such as higher than normal blood sugar levels with diabetes or worsening arthritis pain.


What happens during sick visits?

The details of your sick visit  will depend on your illness, age, and medical history. During your visit we will ask detailed questions about your symptoms and concerns and review your medical history.

Along with a physical exam there may be a need for additional  lab services, like a throat swab, to confirm or rule out a diagnosis.

We will talk to you about about our findings, provide on-site treatments, and offer instructions on caring for your illness at home.

What happens after sick visits?

We  may request a follow-up appointment after your sick visit to monitor your illness and the effectiveness of your treatment.
