Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

As the name suggests, a sick visit is a medical visit focused on addressing a current set of symptoms. It’s a visit with your primary care provider with the goal of diagnosing your symptoms and beginning a treatment plan immediately. 


A sick visit is a great way to address sudden illness, but it can also help when you or a family member suffers a minor injury. Having access to a trusted health provider when an unexpected issue arises means you won’t be stuck sitting in a crowded urgent care waiting room when you’re not feeling well. 

What are some health issues that can be treated during sick visits?


Compcare Medical Center can address a wide range of routine health needs during a sick visit. Some of the things that bring people in for immediate care include:


  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Allergic reactions
  • Skin rash
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening or treatment
  • Sprains and strains


If you encounter these or any other health needs, call the office to determine your next steps. 

When should I come in for a sick visit?


Many minor injuries and illnesses can be treated at home through basic self-care efforts. However, if you’re in severe pain or not feeling better after a day or two of rest and self-care, call Compcare Medical Center to see when you can come in. 


There is no need to suffer unnecessarily on your own when there are highly skilled health providers waiting to assist. A sick visit is designed to get you on track to feeling better, but can also provide the screenings needed to rule out more serious health problems. 


Of course, there are some medical needs that are best met in a fully staffed and equipped emergency room. If you have any of the following, call for immediate emergency medical assistance:


  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Visibly broken bones

If you aren’t sure where to turn for help, simply call your health care provider at Compcare Medical Center to explain your circumstances. You can also book less urgent visits using the online booking tool.
