When do I need a sick visit?

When you’re feeling under-the-weather, you may wonder when it’s time to contact Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington to schedule a sick visit. While you may be able to manage some of your illnesses and symptoms at home, if your symptoms persist or get worse, then it’s time to schedule a sick visit.

Sick visits for children depend on their age and symptoms. Any infant three months or less should come in for a sick visit if they have a fever, respiratory symptoms (cough, runny nose), vomiting, or diarrhea. For older children, you should bring them in if they have a high fever (104 degrees Fahrenheit), persistent vomiting or diarrhea, or a cold that lasts 10 or more days.

The experienced team at Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington offers comprehensive care for many unexpected illnesses, including:

  • Strep throat
  • Sore throat
  • Cold or flu
  • Cough
  • Ear infections
  • Urinary tract infections

And if you’re still not sure about whether you need a sick visit or not, contact the team at Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington by phone, email, or with telemedicine. The team also offers home visits. 

What can I expect during a sick visit?

You can expect a relaxed and thorough evaluation during your sick visit. Because of the direct primary care model, patients are given adequate appointment times so the team can address any and all concerns. 

During the sick visit evaluation, your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history and conducts a physical exam. If needed, they may request diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. For your convenience, Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington offers in-office testing.

After your evaluation, your provider develops a treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms.
