Dr. Reinardy: When Should I Be Concerned and See a Physician?

Most of us have asked that question one time or another. Whether it’s a bad cold, aching pain that won’t go away or severe migraine, it can be hard to know when you should visit a physician. When it comes to your health, you don’t have to “tough it out” or “stick it out” on your own. St. Gianna Clinic is always here for you to help you overcome these physical obstacles and get you back on your feet again. If you experience any of the following, it’s time to contact your physician:

  • Episodes of pain that are acute
  • Nausea and vomiting with the inability to eat over a period of a few hours
  • Persistent high fever
  • Dehydration that causes weakness despite drinking lots of fluids and over the counter medications
  • Cuts that require stitches
  • Sore throat that does not go away, gets worse or is accompanied by a fever
  • Irregular menstrual period intervals
  • Menstrual periods requiring more than one tampon/pad hourly for more than 3-4 consecutive hours
  • Menstrual period pain that is progressive over 6 months 


While our highly qualified physicians at St. Gianna Clinic can see you for all of the above issues and more, it’s important that you visit the Emergency Room immediately if you experience any of the following: 

  • Pain so bad it causes nausea, vomiting, blacking or passing out
  • Chest pain that radiates down the arm/s
  • Inability to speak or utilize your arms or legs 
  • Broken bone/s 
  • Head trauma or head concussion
  • Excruciating pain that progressively gets worse
  • Loss of or blurred vision 


When in doubt, call St. Gianna Clinic at 920-605-3115 and we’ll be happy to schedule you an appointment or direct you to visit the emergency room. We are often even able to provide you with same day in person or telehealth appointments. Allowing you to get the care you need – when you need it most.
