Wellness Q & A

What are wellness visits?

Wellness visits allow you to meet with your provider to discuss any health concerns you may have. These can include short-term illnesses, minor injuries, as well as preventive care.

Any time you need a wellness visit, you may book a sick visit at Resilient Healthcare Services. During this visit, your provider reviews your symptoms and conducts a brief exam. They also look over your medical history. 

Before you receive treatment, your provider might use blood tests, imaging tests, and other diagnostic strategies to confirm your illness and prescribe an appropriate treatment. 

When should I book a wellness visit?

Wellness visits enable you to receive treatment for acute illnesses and injuries that can. They’re also a great opportunity to receive medical clearance for certain jobs or schools.

Certain acute symptoms, like trouble breathing or chest pain, are better handled at the emergency room for immediate care. However, many mild-to-moderate symptoms can benefit from a wellness visit at Resilient Healthcare Services. 

You can schedule a wellness visit if you require care for any of the following:

  • Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
  • B12 Injection
  • DOT Exams
  • Sports physicals
  • School physicals
  • Job physicals

Some injuries qualify for wellness visits too, including minor broken bones in your fingers or toes or flesh wounds that don’t involve major bleeding. 

Which treatments are available through wellness visits?

Resilient Healthcare Services treats you or your child according to the diagnosis your provider identifies during your initial examination. Treatments for acute illnesses and injuries vary widely, with some conditions requiring no clinical care at all.

Based on your ailment, your provider might recommend or prescribe:

  • Oral medications
  • Topical medications
  • Rest
  • Hydration

If your acute illness is contagious, your provider advises you to stay home temporarily so you can avoid spreading the contagion to other people around you. 

In some cases, your provider may advise a “wait-and-see” approach. They may ask you to come back to Resilient Healthcare Services to follow up after your initial visit.

If a condition doesn’t improve, Resilient Healthcare Services can refer you to the appropriate specialist for additional care.
