What is a walk-in family doctor?
A walk-in family doctor is a family doctor that accepts walk-in patients. Let’s break this down a bit.
A family doctor is a doctor that’s fully capable of taking care of you and your family members, including the children and senior members of your family. The doctor is trained in pediatric care, adult healthcare, geriatric care, and primary healthcare which is the most fundamental kind of healthcare. With primary care, patients can receive physical exams, immunizations, treatments for common health conditions, referrals to see healthcare specialists, and more.
When a family doctor accepts walk-in patients, the doctor can see patients without the need for appointment booking. This means patients can just go to the doctor’s office for immediate healthcare. This can be really convenient and sometimes even necessary, like when a patient needs a physical exam right away for work or if a patient needs treatment for a minor sprain.
How does a walk-in clinic work?
Going to a walk-in clinic couldn’t be easier! You don’t have to call ahead for an appointment or anything, so you can just go right to the clinic for care. When you arrive, a front desk attendant will ask you about your reason for visiting, your symptoms, your means of identification, and your insurance. After, the attendant will ask you to wait in the waiting area, and in very little time, you’ll be speaking with a doctor. Then, you’ll tell the doctor about your symptoms and you’ll be able to get a diagnosis and treatment.
A walk-in clinic is convenient and quick, and it’s affordable too, especially since this type of clinic typically accepts most major health insurance plans. This means your visit will likely be covered. The clinic can see anyone of any age too, so anyone in your family can receive care, including your kids and senior family members. Please just remember that a walk-in clinic is for non-life-threatening health matters only.
Can walk-in clinics prescribe medication?
Yes, walk-in clinics can prescribe medications like painkillers, antibiotics, and more. They can also provide other treatments, like stitches, as well as physical exams, diabetes management services, immunizations, testing for certain illnesses, referrals to see specialists, etc. We provide all those services and more here at Dr. Shima Hadidchi MD Family Practice, your local walk-in family medicine clinic.
