Sick Visits Q & A

What can I expect at a sick visit?

A sick visit with Dr. Gbadamosi is similar to your annual physical. However, the focus of the visit will be on your symptoms so he can come up with a diagnosis and treatment plan.

First, you’ll have your vitals checked, including blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature, and your height and weight. Then, Dr. Gbadamosi will ask about your symptoms and review your medical history.

If necessary, Dr. Gbadamosi may need to order additional testing, such as a blood test, to get more information for making a diagnosis.

Once he has gathered all the necessary information from you and the diagnostic tests, he can determine a diagnosis and prescribe a treatment plan, which may include a work slip, medication, or a referral to a specialist.

What illnesses can a primary doctor treat?

Dr. Gbadamosi is able to treat a number of illnesses ranging from the common cold to a sudden increase in blood pressure.

Other illnesses and symptoms include:

  • Flu, fever
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Infections or earaches
  • Boils
  • Pain
  • Nose bleeds
  • Minor injuries

Can the doctor help heal my cold?

The common cold is caused by a virus and no medication can absolutely cure it. The common cold passes with time. However, if your cold has been lingering for more than ten days, you're having trouble breathing, or you feel pressure in your head or chest, you might want to schedule an appointment to see Dr. Gbadamosi today.

Dr. Gbadamosi can evaluate your symptoms to ensure your cold isn't something more severe. Dr. Gbadamosi can also recommend more specific medication to help improve your symptoms so you feel much better.

Do I need a flu vaccination?

As a strong proponent of vaccinations, Dr. Gbadamosi recommends every one of his patients gets a flu vaccination. Vaccinations, in general, have saved more than a billion lives in the past 50 years.

If you’re concerned about contracting the flu, the best way to protect yourself is to vaccinate. The vaccine works by helping your body develop antibodies against the virus.

Dr. Gbadamosi offers only the safest and most comfortable vaccinations.

If you’re feeling under-the-weather, call Dr. Gbadamosi’s office to make an appointment or book online and start feeling better.
