How long does it take to see the doctor when I’m sick?

As soon as you realize you need help, call the office or use the online scheduler to arrange the next available appointment. Dr. Khan offers same-day sick visits to help you get back to full health as soon as possible.

What happens during my sick visit?

During your sick visit at Millennium Park Medical Associates, you start with a description of your current symptoms. Dr. Khan performs an exam to look for the cause of your illness.

You may also need testing, like a nasal swab to diagnose flu or a back-of-the-throat swab to diagnose strep throat. In some cases, you may need additional tests such as blood tests, urinalysis, or electrocardiogram (EKG) to find the illness trigger.

Millennium Park Medical Associates performs most testing in-house, which means you get immediate results and can start treatment that same day.

What kind of treatment will I need during my sick visit?

Every sick visit is different because illness affects each patient differently. At Millennium Park Medical Associates, Dr. Khan creates a personalized care plan for you.

Depending on your needs, she may prescribe medication such as antibiotics or antivirals. She may also recommend simple over-the-counter solutions in cases of milder illness.

For example, nonprescription antihistamines and decongestants can work well for some nasal issues caused by common colds.

Along with any prescription or over-the-counter medications, Dr. Khan advises recovering patients to stay home, rest, and drink plenty of water to encourage healing.
