Request your sick visit appointment today by calling the office or simply walk in during normal business hours.
A sick visit is a doctor’s appointment designed to diagnose and treat an acute health concern like a sore throat, persistent cough, or high fever. Sick visits are different from routine physical exams. Instead of monitoring your health and updating your immunizations, a sick visit involves Dr. Rahaman reviewing your medical history, asking about your symptoms, and developing a treatment plan that helps you return to a healthy and active lifestyle.
Almost everyone experiences aches, pains, chills, and fevers from time to time. Usually, these conditions get better on their own and respond well to conservative care like rest and over-the-counter medications.
However, if your symptoms don’t go away or they interfere with your ability to work or do other routine tasks, you’ll need to schedule a sick visit.
Following a physical exam and discussion, Dr. Rahaman can recommend treatment. This might involve prescription antibiotics to limit the spread of infection or other care to help speed up your body’s natural healing process.
At Family Medicine Solutions, Dr. Rahaman uses sick visits to diagnose a variety of different conditions, including:
You might also benefit from a sick visit if you experience severe acute pain as a result of a sports-related injury, automobile accident, or a fall at work.
If you or a loved one experiences a medical emergency that is life-threatening, call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room right away.
Dr. Rahaman knows that non-life-threatening acute illnesses and injuries tend to occur when you least expect them. That’s why he offers same-day appointments. If you or your child requires immediate medical care, call the office or walk in during normal business hours. Dr. Rahaman will coordinate with your schedule to ensure you receive the care you need when you need it.
Don’t let annoying symptoms like a headache, fever, and sore throat prevent you from living your best life. To schedule your sick visit, call the office or walk in during business hours today.
