A sick visit is an appointment that addresses new or worsening symptoms of illness. You may also need a sick visit if you have an injury.
At your sick visit, the Rose Medical Clinic team may perform a number of tests to diagnose acute or chronic conditions. Some sick visits result in minor treatments, while others require long-term care.

At Rose Medical Clinic, the team understands that you don’t plan on being sick. The earlier you schedule a visit to discuss your symptoms, the sooner you can get the care you need.
The team prioritizes in scheduling your sick visit. They may request that you come in for a same-day visit or next-day appointment to treat your symptoms.
During a sick visit, the team records your vital signs (such as temperature, pulse, or respiration rate) and your height and weight. Next, they review your medical history and ask questions regarding your symptoms. They may perform additional testing, such as a strep test, to help diagnose your illness.
