Sick Visits Q & A

When should I schedule a sick visit?

Generally, you should schedule a sick visit with Dr. Ausi when you or your children have symptoms that aren’t getting better with at-home care and last longer than a few days.

If you have a newborn or infant who’s ill, it’s best to schedule an evaluation at Ausi Medical Center as soon as possible

Some of the most common reasons for scheduling a sick visit include:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Infection
  • Skin rashes
  • Sore throat
  • Colds and flu
  • Unexplained pain

Dr. Ausi can also evaluate cuts and abrasions that occur due to accidents like falls or sports injuries.

What can I expect during a sick visit?

Whether the sick visit is for you or your child, Dr. Ausi discusses the symptoms and reviews medical history information. Based on the symptoms and their severity, Dr. Ausi may make a diagnosis after a physical exam or wait for diagnostic testing results to confirm conditions like strep throat or infection.

Dr. Ausi creates a treatment plan that focuses on resolving symptoms quickly and helping you feel better. He may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications and rest for colds and flu. For infections, Dr. Ausi may prescribe a course of antibiotics.

To prevent infection from cuts or skin injuries, Dr. Ausi may apply topical medications and a bandage. If broken or fractured bones are possible, he may refer you for additional treatment with a specialist.

Why do I need an annual physical as an adult?

While Dr. Ausi provides comprehensive care for acute illness, he also values the importance of preventive care. For this reason, he offers and recommends annual physicals for adults, even when they’re not sick.

During an annual physical, Dr. Ausi reviews your personal and family medical history and performs a thorough physical exam. He tracks important information about your health including:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature

If you have a family history or other underlying risk factors for chronic diseases, like diabetes, Dr. Ausi may also recommend blood work and other screenings to identify diseases in their earliest stages.

When you have an existing health condition, you may need more frequent visits at Ausi Medical Center, so Dr. Ausi can evaluate your current treatment and the progression of your disease.

An annual adult physical is also a great time to get caught up on necessary immunizations, including the seasonal flu shot.
