Same Day Sick Visits
We know that illnesses aren't planned and it can be difficult to get an appointment at the last minute. Our Same Day Sick Visits can help when those unplanned illnesses arrive. We are glad to offer same day appointments for when you are sick or have an urgent problem. They are available every weekday except Wednesdays.
These appointments are for established patients only, not new patients.
These appointments aren’t for every type of problem. They are only for those minor yet urgent problems. Here are of some examples of the types of problems we can treat during our Same Day Sick Visits:
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Urinary tract infection
- Sore throat
Please understand that Same Day Sick Visits are for minor, urgent medical needs only, not for long-term chronic issues or preventive services. For example, our Same Day Sick Visits are not for diabetic checkups, medication refills, general exams, pap smears, well child exams, or immunizations. Our Same Day Sick Visits are also not for medical emergencies, like chest pain or shortness of breath. You should go to the emergency room or call 911 if you have a medical emergency.
How do I make a Same Day Sick Visit appointment?
To be seen in the Same Day Sick Visits, you don’t even need to call! Just walk-in! Appointments are available every weekday except for Wednesday. Please understand that you may have to wait, but we will see you as soon as possible during that clinic session.
To be seen in the morning, please be sure to sign in between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.
To be seen in the afternoon, please sign in between 1 and 2 p.m.
In order to better care for you and our other scheduled patients, if you arrive after the sign-in time, we may not be able to see you. Also, if you come to the Same Day Sick Visits with a non-urgent or long-standing problem, we will ask that you schedule an appointment with your regular doctor as he/she is the best person to care for your long-term medical problems.
If you have any questions about whether you should come to the Same Day Sick Visits, please let us know.
