What can I expect during a sick visit?

If necessary, Dr. Acharya may need to order additional testing, such as a blood tests, 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.

Can the doctor help heal my cold?

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. Acharya at Texas Primary Care Specialists today.

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

Do I need a flu vaccination?
