Walk In Clinic
A Walk in clinic describes a very broad category of medical facilities only loosely defined as those that accept patients on a walk-in basis and with no appointment required. A number of healthcare service providers fall under the walk-in clinic umbrella including urgent care centers, retail clinics and even many free clinics or community health clinics. Walk-in clinics offer the advantages of being accessible and often inexpensive.
Urgent care clinics are usually led by physicians. The much smaller category of retail clinics, which are stand-alone clinics located inside large retail stores or shopping malls, tend to be headed by nurse practitioners. The significantly higher price for an urgent care visit compared to a retail clinic visit is largely attributed to this difference in staffing.
All types of walk-in clinics provide basic medical services, such as routine vaccinations, evaluation of cold and flu symptoms, and treatment for less severe physical injuries. Urgent care centers normally provide more services, such as X-ray testing for suspected pneumonia or broken bones.
Be seen in the Walk in clinic without an appointment for almost any of the symptoms for which you would be seen in the regular clinic. Please note, walk-in clinic is for urgent and acute issues, but not emergency issues, such as severe pain, chest pain or symptoms of stroke.
Injuries and illnesses don’t always happen when your doctor’s office is open. To help you get care when you need it, we offer a walk-in clinic. The purpose of the walk-in clinic is to complement the care you receive from your primary care provider by offering same-day care when your regular provider is not available. The walk-in clinic provides high-quality care for medical conditions that are not life-threatening for people of all ages.
Examples of Services Offered:
. Common, non-life threatening illness of children and adults
. Cold and flu care
. Minor cuts needing stitches
. Sprains, strains and simple fractures
. Earache, sore throat and cough
. Bladder infections
. Asthma and breathing treatment
We accept most medical insurance and will submit claims to your insurance company on your behalf. We encourage you to contact your insurance company to verify coverage for the services you are seeking. This will help you to prepare for any out-of-pocket expenses such as copayments, coinsurance, and/or deductibles. Copayments will be collected at the time of your visit. If you are uninsured, payment will be required at the time of your visit.
We offer an alternative to emergency room visits, saving time and money. Our physicians and staff can provide comprehensive care for adults and children of all ages with almost any health problem. Our facilities are now accepting new patients of all ages.
We now have a walk in clinic available for patients seen in our clinic for a hearing aid appointment within the last year and needing assistance with their hearing aid for tubing issues, wax related problems, hearing aid is not working or problems with hearing aid FM system if it was purchased through our clinic.
We don't schedule the visits ahead of time, if you do not arrive at the start of the clinic, you're welcome to call before you get here so we can tell you the anticipated wait time. Also, you're welcome to bring your hearing aid in at any time and give it to the front desk.
Our physicians are capable of diagnosing and treating everything from coughs and colds to sprains and fevers. Unlike at other clinics, they have immediate access to on site X-Ray/Ultrasound, laboratory with stat reporting, pharmacy and physiotherapy – meaning they can provide a truly full service walk-in clinic, even at off-peak operating hours.
