Hacer la visita del médico. 
Make the doctor's visit.

 This expression has nothing to do with visiting a doctor. It is usually used by mothers and grandmothers when paying a visit to someone for the minimum time possible to do what is needed – like turning up at a friend’s house to deliver something, a quick “hello” and then leaving immediately. The nearest English expression would be ‘Make a flying visit’!.
