5 Advantages of a Sick Visit

If you have unusual symptoms that interfere with your daily activities, yet they aren’t severe enough to elicit a visit to the emergency room, you may benefit from a sick visit. 

During a sick visit, our team at Bethel Family Medicine can diagnose a wide range of illnesses and come up with a treatment plan on the spot. If the cause of your symptoms isn’t clear, our team may also recommend further testing. 

Here are five advantages to seeking medical attention as soon as possible when you’re experiencing symptoms. 

1. Management of chronic conditions 

Low or high blood sugar episodes, nausea, and high blood pressure can all indicate an underlying chronic condition.

If you already have a diagnosis, our team can help you get a better understanding of how you can better manage your disease. If you have symptoms but don’t know what’s causing them, our team is certified to diagnose and treat a wide range of chronic conditions.

2. Help from medical staff with experience in a wide range of illnesses  

Our staff can help you with a wide range of conditions from infections to hypertension to high cholesterol. Our specialists have experience in treating patients of all ages. 

3. Short waiting time for blood tests 

In a fast-paced society, the process of scheduling appointments, getting lab tests done, and waiting for test results can be stressful and time-consuming. 

If you choose to get your blood tests with our practice, you won’t have to wait long for your blood test results. We offer in-office, same-day testing.

4. Complication prevention 

When left untreated, many infections can spread. Even the flu can be dangerous for someone who has a compromised immune system. 

Good habits such as eating a nutritious diet, getting enough Vitamin D, and avoiding additives and processed foods can boost the immune system's ability to fight disease. 

However, if you already have a history of struggling to fight off disease on your own, you should visit an expert as soon as possible. 

5. The establishment of your health risk

There are certain markers that can predict the future. For example, a combination of high bad cholesterol (LDL) and low good cholesterol (HDL) is often an indicator of heart disease. 

Catching deadly diseases early on can prevent complications and even prompt disease prevention without the need for medication.
