I think if it's a therapy issue, like Kaspar is talking about, that you really should tell the therapist "hey, my kid has conjunctivitis, still want us in your room?" Because it's not just the therapist you could be contaminating, and it's not fair to anyone for you to expose your child's germs all over the place. If they're coming to you, that's a different story, but still you need to let them know your kid is sick or whatever.
I've done that several times, and each time the therapist has come, but thanked me for letting them know he was either on abx already, or had a really, really bad cold, etc. I just send an email and says "heads up, Mark's been on abx for a respiratory infection/has a bad bad cold with nasty cough and runny nose/had a really high temp yesterday but is just tired and grumpy today" and let them decide if they want to expose themselves.
As for dr visits like the OP mentioned, I'd go unless dealing with high temps or serious nastiness.
