What To Do If You Are Too Sick To Go To The Doctor

Slide 2:

Depending on your circumstances, you may wonder if your medical condition can wait for a doctor visit or if you should head to a hospital. If you are too sick to go to the doctor, there are some treatment options available for you.   Phone Consultations   Some doctor’s offices or clinics do offer phone consultations so that patients can call and speak with a trained medical professional over the phone. With a phone consultation, patients can find out if they need to see someone immediately or if their ailment is likely something minor that can wait for regular office hours.

Slide 3:

Home Visits   There are doctors who still offer home visits. This is something that varies from doctor to doctor, and you will likely need to be aware of your doctor’s availability before a problem arises but it is still an option if you cannot wait to schedule an appointment.   Go to an Urgent Care Clinic   If your health issue is not an emergency but you do need medical attention, an urgent care clinic may be your best bet. An urgent care clinic typically has more flexible hours than a doctor’s office, so they are open late and sometimes also on weekends and holidays.

Slide 4:

If you are experiencing a serious medical emergency, then you should go to a hospital or emergency room right away. However, if your illness is minor but still needs attention, then a phone consultation, home visit or urgent care clinic may be right for you.
