Sick Visits Q & A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are appointments for acute illnesses and medical concerns. If you have a medical issue that’s not serious enough for the emergency room (ER) but isn’t treatable at home, a sick visit to Main Street Medical Clinic can relieve discomfort as quickly as possible. 

What conditions require sick visits?

Sick visits can cover any type of sickness, even the things that you might not traditionally think of as an illness. A few common examples that sick visits cover are:

  • Common colds
  • Coughs
  • Fevers
  • Skin rashes
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Ear infections
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)

Any non-life-threatening physical or mental health problem troubling you or making your life difficult deserves compassionate medical care as quickly as possible. Main Street Medical Clinic offers sick visits to meet a broad range of health needs in teenagers and adults. 

What happens when I come in for sick visits?

When you visit Main Street Medical Clinic for a sick visit, you’ll discuss your symptoms or issues with the team. It’s important to give your providers as detailed an explanation as you can. Any information you provide helps them better determine what kind of testing and treatments you could need. 

Most sick visits involve some type of testing, like bloodwork or imaging, to accurately diagnose the problem. The practice has on-site lab machines that can perform ultrasounds and electrocardiograms (EKGs).

What treatments are available during sick visits?

The Main Street Medical Clinic team can treat most problems immediately in the office. Your condition may require either short- or long-term medication. For example, an infection usually requires antibiotics for a few days to a couple of weeks. On the other hand, people with allergies may need to take daily medication. 

The team explains all the treatment options to you and helps you make any necessary changes to feel better. For example, people with sleep issues may need to learn new sleep routines. 

Some sick visits require just one follow-up appointment, such as a rash. Others, like depression, may require ongoing visits so the team can make sure your treatment plan is the most effective one for you. 

Main Street Medical Clinic offers sick visits at an affordable cost in two convenient offices. Schedule an appointment by calling the nearest office or booking online today.
