What are sick visits?

Sick visits are medical appointments you make when you’re not feeling well or are experiencing unexplained pain.

Lakepointe Direct Primary Care offers affordable consultations to people of all ages through in-person visits and the telehealth platform. The caring and knowledgeable medical providers diagnose and treat a wide range of acute conditions that develop unexpectedly, including:

  • Headaches
  • Colds and the flu
  • Respiratory infections
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Ear, nose, and throat problems

When should I schedule a sick visit?

You should schedule a sick visit at Lakepointe Direct Primary Care if you have symptoms of an illness or injury that you can’t treat on your own or if your symptoms continue to get worse, even with treatment.

Symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Sore throat
  • Persistent cough
  • Nasal congestion and/or runny nose
  • Burning or pain with urination

The team uses advanced diagnostic technologies to provide you with an accurate diagnosis without delays. They create individual treatment plans to ease your symptoms so that you feel better quickly.

If you’re unsure if you need an in-office sick visit for your symptoms, you can call the office or schedule a telehealth visit. Through an online video conferencing platform, you meet with the medical team to discuss how you’re feeling and learn more about your treatment choices.

When happens during a sick visit?

During a sick visit, the Lakepointe Direct Primary Care team reviews your medical history and symptoms. They complete a physical exam and might order diagnostic tests like:

  • Flu test
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood work
  • Lung function test

Based on the results of your tests, the team creates a treatment plan using medications and other therapies to ease your symptoms. They can also recommend home-care steps you can take, including getting enough rest, drinking fluids, and limiting your activities until you feel better.

If you have the flu or another contagious illness, you’ll need to stay home from work or school. The team can provide the medical documentation you need to excuse your absence.
