Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

As the name implies, a sick visit is a visit with a health provider for the purpose of diagnosing and treating an acute medical condition. Sick visits offer the chance to find relief from an illness or injury. 

While some issues will eventually clear up on their own, without medical intervention, there’s no need to experience significant discomfort when help is just a phone call away. Parents who are caring for a child who isn’t feeling well are especially thankful for the opportunity to access a skilled medical professional through a sick visit. 

What kinds of telemedicine assistance can be provided during sick visits?

Advancements in technology have made it far easier to connect with a health care provider, expanding the options for getting the care you need to feel better quickly. Numerous different conditions can be assessed and treated through a sick visit. 

Some of the issues that lead people to reach out to Telakai Health include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rash
  • Minor lacerations and burns
  • Sore throat
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety

These are just a few of the issues Telakai Health can help you address. Your practitioner begins with a brief assessment, including a review of your personal and family health history. If you need blood testing or other basic lab work, you can be referred right away. 

If you need to be seen by a specialist, your provider can coordinate that care. There are many different health needs that can be effectively met through telemedicine, and when you need more hands-on care, your provider can guide you to the proper resources.   

What are the benefits of telemedicine for acute care needs?

There are many reasons why telemedicine is such an appealing source of health care. To begin, the ability to connect with a provider from the comfort of home is very convenient. You won’t need to drive across town or shuffle your schedule around to accommodate an in-person appointment.

If you simply need a prescription to begin or extend your treatment, that service does not require an in-office visit. You can explain your symptoms, and when appropriate, your practitioner will ensure you get the medicine you need to feel better. 

If you have a compromised immune system or are concerned about being exposed to viruses, telemedicine is a perfect solution. You’ll receive top-quality care without having to navigate a crowded waiting room or others who are not feeling well.
