Flu/Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are appointments dedicated to exploring new or changing symptoms. During telehealth sick visits with Armstrong Telehealth LLC, Dr. Armstrong asks for details about your symptoms, including when they started, so she can diagnose you and provide treatment. 

Telehealth is excellent for sick visits because it lets you avoid visiting a medical office where contagious illnesses tend to spread. You can stay in the comfort of your own home while still receiving a detailed evaluation and top-quality care. 

For a telehealth appointment, you simply log onto your phone, tablet, or computer to communicate with Nikki using high-definition video and audio services. Then, she performs a patient-assisted evaluation to determine your diagnosis. 

When are sick visits necessary?

Book a sick visit with Armstrong Telehealth LLC any time you have new symptoms or notice a discernible change in your well-being. Some common symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Cough 
  • Congestion
  • Earache

Nikki specializes in evaluating and treating common illnesses like upper respiratory infections. Certain illnesses do not have medications to cure them, but they can reduce your symptoms.  

What happens during a sick visit?

During your sick visit with Armstrong Telehealth LLC, Nikki asks you to assist her with a patient-assisted physical exam. She guides you through simple tests and tasks that help her gather information on your health. 

After determining the cause of your symptoms, Nikki can recommend treatment. She may prescribe flu or COVID-19 medications for viral infections but doesn’t typically prescribe antibiotics unless a bacterial infection has lasted for 10 days or longer. 

In many cases, home remedies are effective for treating mild illnesses. For example, Nikki might recommend using a humidifier or resting for a few days. She might also advise you to stay home from work for a few days to recover. 

If you have low oxygen saturation, Nikki recommends forgoing the telehealth appointment and instead going to the emergency room for respiratory concerns. You should also opt for the emergency room if there is excessive bleeding, a head injury, or if your life is at risk.
