Sick Visits


"Sick visits" refer to appointments or consultations with healthcare providers specifically for the evaluation and treatment of acute illnesses or worsening of chronic conditions. These visits typically occur when a person is experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, or other signs of illness. Fortunately, the team at RescueMD makes time for these unexpected events, helping patients get the timely care they need when they need it. Call the office in Allen, Texas, or use the easy online booking tool to schedule your sick visit. 


Sick Visits Q & A

What is a sick visit?

For some medical matters or for regular health checkups, scheduling an appointment in advance can be both easier and save you time and energy. However, certain health concerns arise unexpectedly that require more prompt attention. When these issues are more serious, a trip to the emergency room will be necessary.

For less severe cases, going to the emergency room can be an unnecessary waste of time and money. A sick visit is a same-day appointment with your doctor to diagnose and treat these unexpected ailments. The team at RescueMD is happy to offer patients this option, helping them get the care they need so that they can get back to enjoying their lives.

When should I have a sick visit?

A sick visit is intended to treat common and less serious ailments that arise unexpectedly and cause you alarm or discomfort. These can include:


  • Flu or cold
  • Rash
  • High fever
  • Persistent pain like stomach ache, headache, etc.
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Unusual symptoms


When more serious issues arise, like chest pain, altered consciousness, or more severe pain, seek emergency medical care by dialing 911 or going to your nearest emergency room. When appropriate, though, a sick visit is the better choice.

What can I expect at a sick visit?

During your visit, your RescueMD provider will complete a thorough physical exam, order diagnostic tests if needed, and provide appropriate treatment or management recommendations. 

Once they have made an accurate diagnosis, your provider will share a treatment designed specifically for your condition and unique needs, which can include prescription or over-the-counter medication or other treatments.
