What happens during acute illness sick visits?

Sick visits are focused on diagnosing and treating your current condition. The initial portion of the visit usually includes gathering some basic information about your health. Expect a check of temperature, blood pressure, breathing function, and more. 


Next comes a discussion of your symptoms, including an overview of when you began to notice changes and the circumstances that led up to your illness. Your practitioner might recommend lab testing to gain deeper insight into how your organs and systems are currently functioning. 


Each step of the diagnostic process leads to the next. Your practitioner guides you toward the options best suited for your needs. Once your condition is diagnosed, you can begin to explore treatment options. 


The last portion of your visit focuses on how to relieve symptoms and give your body the care needed to heal. If more in-depth diagnostic or treatment services are necessary, your provider advises you on the next steps. 

How should I prepare for my acute illness visit?

A degree of preparation can help you get the most out of your sick visit. If you haven’t been in for routine physical exams, take some time to compile a list of any medications and supplements you currently take, as well as any health issues that might not be included in your medical record on file at A Shamani Inc. 


If you have significant pain or feel anxious about your visit, it might be helpful to have a friend or loved one drive you to the office and remain with you during your appointment. No one is at their best when they’re injured or ill, and having someone there with you can help ensure you don’t miss any information or guidance. 


If you need care for acute illness, call the office to see if a same-day visit is available. You can also book online as an option for less urgent scheduling needs.
