Sick Visits Q & A

What is a sick visit?

As the name implies, a sick visit is an appointment booked to address a current illness or injury. Health issues can arise at any time and with very little notice. Having somewhere to turn can make a world of difference in how quickly you feel better. 

Some of the issues that can prompt a sick visit include:

  • Sore throat
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Sports injuries
  • Fever
  • Rash
  • Allergic reactions
  • Asthma attack
  • Minor cuts or burns
  • Urinary tract infection


These are just some of the issues that can lead you to schedule a sick visit for yourself or a loved one. Our team at Redwood Family Health Center also offers pediatric healthcare, giving your family full coverage for a wide range of common health issues. 

What happens during a sick visit?

Your visit begins with a discussion of your current symptoms and a review of your personal and family health histories. Be sure to include details of any recent changes you’ve noticed and any conditions that have required treatment. 

Next comes an examination, which allows your practitioner a chance to assess your overall condition and learn more about the severity of your symptoms. In-office screenings and imaging are available to support the diagnostic process. 

Once your practitioner diagnoses your condition, you discuss treatment options. You learn the pros and cons of various treatments, as well as what to expect in terms of timing and expense. 

In most cases, treatment begins during your sick visit. If you require more in-depth screening or specialized care, the next steps are outlined during your appointment.   

When should I schedule a sick visit for myself or my child?

Far too many people wait until they’re completely miserable to schedule a sick visit. Our team at Redwood Family Health Center is dedicated to delivering top-quality care, and we urge you to book a sick visit when needed. 

If your symptoms are keeping you from enjoying normal daily routines, booking an appointment gets you on track to feeling better. Parents enjoy easy access to skilled medical care when their kids are ill, and they know they can rely on pediatric sick visits for prompt and reliable care. 

In short, you should feel comfortable reaching out to book a sick visit at any time symptoms arise. 

After all, the reason you chose Redwood Family Health Center and membership-based healthcare was to improve access to quality medical services. When better to take advantage of that access than when you or your loved one is ill or injured?
