Sick Visits Q & A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are medical appointments you make when you’re not feeling well because of an acute illness, injury, or chronic disease.

Dr. Bos offers same-day and next-day sick visits in-office for adults through concierge medicine.

Dr. Bos can also meet with you online through a telemedicine platform to assess your symptoms. He also makes house calls available for individuals too sick to travel to the office.

When should I schedule sick visits?

You can schedule sick visits at the office of Robert Bos, MD, if you’re not feeling well or experience an injury. Symptoms that may require medical attention include:

  • Pain
  • High fever
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Skin rash
  • Minor cuts
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Joint or muscle swelling

If you’re not sure if you need an in-office sick visit, you can schedule a telemedicine appointment with Dr. Bos to discuss your symptoms. He can recommend an in-office visit for diagnostic testing or refer you to an area hospital for emergency medical situations.

You might also need a sick visit appointment if you’re managing a chronic disease and develop new symptoms or if your existing symptoms get worse.

What can I expect during sick visits?

During your sick visit appointment, Dr. Bos evaluates your symptoms and reviews your medical history. He can complete your initial evaluation in the office, online, or by phone to determine if you need diagnostic tests.

Dr. Bos offers advanced technologies like X-rays and echocardiograms in the office to accurately diagnose the cause of your symptoms. He also completes an exam.

Based on the results of your exam and lab tests, Dr. Bos customizes a treatment plan to help you feel better and prevent your condition from worsening. He can prescribe medications to ease pain and inflammation or clear infections. Wellness improvement resources like one-on-one health coaching are available to support your recovery and boost your overall health.

If you need additional medical care for injuries or illness, Dr. Bos can refer you to a specialist. For instance, he can refer you to an orthopedic specialist for fractures or a cardiologist for heart conditions.
