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
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.
