What is a sick visit?

Sick visits are appointment times reserved for patients who have immediate health concerns that can’t wait a few days (or weeks) to be seen. Schedule a sick visit for yourself or a family member who has symptoms of an acute illness, an unexpected injury, or complications associated with a chronic health condition. 

By offering sick visits, Avenel and Rahway Primary & Aesthetics Care helps you avoid wasting a lot of time waiting at the emergency room or an urgent care clinic. You also get access to a provider who knows your medical history and can better understand and treat your concerns. 

Frequently Asked Questions about Sick Visits

Sick visits are appropriate when you need immediate care for non-life-threatening concerns. If you have symptoms of a heart attack, a major injury that threatens a limb, or unconsciousness, head to the emergency room or call 911.

Common reasons people schedule sick visits include:

  • Flu or cold symptoms
  • Fever or chills
  • Sinus infections
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Possible strep throat
  • Unexplained rash
  • Digestive distress

Asthma flare-ups, severe arthritis pain, or erratic blood sugar levels are other reasons to schedule a sick visit.

The team at Avenel & Rahway Primary Care also offers sick visits as part of their well-child visits. Well-child visits are routine checks of a growing infant or toddler to ensure they’re on track and get vaccinations that help protect them from severe disease. 

Oftentimes, you can manage symptoms at home with over-the-counter medications and rest. But, if you have an illness that persists for several days or gets worse with time, make an appointment at Avenel and Rahway Primary Care & Aesthetics.

Concerning symptoms in adults and children include:

  • Chronic cough
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Prolonged fever or high fever
  • Severe throat pain
  • Body aches and extreme fatigue

If you’re not sure you should schedule a sick visit, call the friendly staff at Avenel Primary Care. They can help determine whether you should come in or schedule a telehealth visit.
