What kinds of issues can be addressed during same-day visits?

Same-day visits, often called sick visits or acute care visits, offer a setting for you to receive immediate diagnostic and treatment services for a current set of symptoms. These visits are a great way to meet your needs without waiting to come in for a normally scheduled office visit. 

Some of the issues that bring people in for same-day visits include:

  • Fever
  • Cough and sore throat
  • Sprains and strains
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Signs of infection
  • Lacerations or abrasions
  • Severe symptoms of anxiety or depression

When you need support in a timely manner, the team at Rios Healthcare Associates is here to help. 

When is the right time to seek a same-day visit?

There’s no need to suffer through pain or other symptoms when help is readily available. When you rely on Rios Healthcare Associates for care, you have access to outstanding acute care services provided when you need them. 

If you’re feeling ill or when you sustain an injury, reach out to the practice to see if a same-day visit is an option. When possible, call earlier in the day to secure a visit, as availability will narrow toward the end of office hours. Of course, if you begin to experience symptoms after the office is closed, reach out first thing in the morning. 

How should I prepare for my same-day visits?

Your practitioner will already have access to your personal medical records, but if anything has changed since your last visit, be sure to share those details when you arrive for your same-day visit. For example, if you’ve been receiving specialized care for a health condition, or have added any medication to your routine, let your practitioner know. 

You should also be prepared to share the details of your symptoms during your visit. This includes when you first noticed symptoms, how quickly they worsened, and what self-care efforts helped you achieve relief. 

If you need to set up a same-day visit for yourself or a loved one, reach out to Rios Healthcare Associates by phone. Remember that online booking is always an option for less urgent booking needs.
