Sick Visits Q & A

Which conditions do sick visits cover?

Sick visits allow you to talk to medical experts about ongoing health concerns. Whenever you notice new or changing symptoms that don’t improve right away, it’s important to let the Medical Arts Associates P.S. team know so they can conduct an examination and testing. They can then help you recover from any acute illness or minor injury causing your symptoms. 

A few examples of Sick visits at Medical Arts Associates P.S. may include:

  • Cold and flu
  • Respiratory infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Ear infections
  • Stomach bugs
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Minor injuries

Medical Arts Associates P.S. is also an urgent care clinic, and same-day appointments are available. They can save you the time of waiting hours in the emergency room or waiting days for a typical primary care appointment elsewhere. 

When should I book a sick visit?

If any new symptoms occur or if you have current symptoms that worsen, it’s time to schedule a sick visit at Medical Arts Associates P.S. Some common symptoms that might drive you to schedule a sick visit are:

  • Stomach pain
  • Head pain
  • Earache
  • Sore throat
  • Skin irritation
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Fever

Same-day visits can address medical issues that aren’t life-or-death but still benefit from immediate care. For severe issues like a loss of consciousness or major bleeding, go to the emergency room instead. 

What happens during sick visits?

During a sick visit, the team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. gathers information about your symptoms. The team asks what your symptoms are, when they started, and if they’ve changed since they began. They may also use diagnostic testing to get more accurate information so they can make an official diagnosis. 

Once the team examines you and reviews the results of any tests they conduct, they can make treatment recommendations. They may prescribe medications or give you tips for managing your symptoms at home. If an illness is contagious, they advise you to wash your hands often and stay home until your symptoms are gone. 

To schedule a same-day sick visit for yourself or a family member, call Medical Arts Associates P.S., or request an appointment online today. Telehealth appointments are also available for your convenience.
