About Same-Day Sick Visits

We know that when illness strikes unexpectedly, it can be difficult to get an appointment at the last-minute. That’s why we offer same-day sick visits, available every weekday (except for Wednesday).

Who is Eligible for a Same-Day Sick Visit?

These appointments are for established patients of Rush Copley Family Medicine Center, not new patients. These appointments are only for minor, yet urgent problems.

Our same-day sick visits are for:

  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Sore throat
  • Rash
  • Earache
  • Cough

Our same-day sick visits are not for the following:

  • Long-term chronic issues (such as diabetic checkups or medication refills)
  • Preventive services (such as Pap smears, well-child exams or immunizations)
  • Medical emergencies (such as chest pain or shortness of breath)

You should go to the emergency room or call 911 if you have a medical emergency. For preventative services or if you need help with a long-term chronic issue, reach out to a primary care physician to get started.
