Acute & Sick Care Visits

Illness always seems to strike at the most inopportune times; when you have a full week of meetings, before a vacation, during the holidays, etc. Even the most proactive measures can’t keep all illnesses or injuries away.

As part of our primary care practice in Oak Brook, IL, Vitality Family Health provides care for the diagnosis and management of acute illnesses as well as necessary urgent care services for minor accidents such as sprains, strains, and injuries. We offer same-day or next-day appointments for all acute illnesses and minor injuries, depending on your symptoms.

When Should You Make An Acute & Sick Care Visit

We provide all of our members with the opportunity to schedule same-day sick care appointments at our direct primary care center in Oak Brook, IL. We understand that most of us don’t have a lot of control when it comes to catching a cold or accidentally spraining an ankle. Our providers strive to arrange an appointment for our patients as soon as possible so that we have adequate time to understand what may be causing your symptoms and give you a treatment plan that will have you feeling like yourself again as soon as possible. Here are some common reasons that you may wish to schedule an Acute and Sick Care visit in Oak Brook, IL:

  • Cold Symptoms (body aches, coughing, runny or stuffy nose, etc.)
  • Flu Symptoms (Fever, chills, fatigue, headaches, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.)
  • Upper Respiratory Symptoms (congestion, gagging, drooling, loss of appetite, etc.)  
  • Migraines and Acute Headaches
  • Ear Infections
  • Sprains or Strains
  • Minor Wounds
  • Rash or Skin Irritation
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Other Common Illnesses


It’s critical to schedule an acute and sick care visit if you are experiencing any of the above issues. Some of the symptoms of these conditions could be a sign of a more serious condition, especially if you have been experiencing the symptoms for an extended period of time. For example, dizziness, which can sometimes be attributed to a cold or flu, can also be a sign of high blood pressure or hypertension. High blood pressure can be deadly if left untreated. 

In order to serve you better, we recommend contacting us at Vitality Family Health as soon as possible–even the night before! This will allow us to set aside enough time to address the concerns you have, along with an in-depth evaluation to see if there is anything else that needs to be taken care of at your visit. 

We strive to make sure that all of our members experience the same care they’ve come to expect from our functional medicine clinic in Oak Brook, IL, without needing to schedule an urgent care appointment somewhere else; where the staff on hand has little to no knowledge of you or your health history (and won’t accommodate or guide you on your commitment to healthy and natural living). 

If you are sick or require urgent care treatment, call our primary care office in Oak Brook, IL. We provide a 24/7 on-call service with a provider and can help to answer any of your questions and schedule a same or next-day appointment to help you feel better fast. If you are currently not a member but would like to schedule an Acute and Sick Care visit, get in touch with our clinic to learn more about our direct primary care membership model and to see if we are a good fit for you and your family.
