When should I visit a walk-in clinic?
You should visit a walk-in clinic whenever you have a minor but urgent health issue. “Minor” means the issue is non-life-threatening, and “urgent” means the issue still requires immediate treatment. An example of a minor but urgent health issue is a simple sprained ankle or a common case of strep throat.
For a life-threatening health issue, you must call 911 and go to the ER (emergency room). Only the ER can handle life-threatening issues. For a minor but non-urgent health-related issue, like if you need a checkup, you can go see your doctor or visit a walk-in clinic.
It’s best to go to a walk-in clinic for a minor but urgent health issue. If you go to the ER for such an issue, you’ll have to wait until patients with serious health issues are treated, or if you choose to go to your doctor, you’ll probably have to wait for an appointment.
What do walk-in clinics treat?
Walk-in clinics can handle any minor health issues and provide many other services. In fact, walk-in clinics can provide many of the common services your doctor can provide, and more, and of course, walk-in clinics can serve you on a walk-in basis. Some of the services we provide here at our clinic are:
- Treatments for minor illnesses, like the common cold, indigestion, minor infections, etc.
- Treatments for minor injuries, like minor cuts, simple broken bones, etc.
- Pediatric care services, geriatric care services, and women’s health services
- Referrals to see specialists
- Diagnostic services
- Diabetes management
- And more
Many of the services we’ve mentioned are available on a walk-in basis, so you won’t need to make an appointment in order to get them!
Do you have to pay for walk-in clinics?
Walk-in clinics typically charge a flat fee for service, and then any fees for any other services provided. Since our clinic is both a walk-in clinic and a primary care clinic, we may have more options for payment. We also work with most major health insurance providers, and they typically cover walk-in clinic costs. You may simply have to pay your copay and deductible. For patients without insurance, we offer self-pay options. Contact us or come see us for details.
For the treatment of a minor health issue, it’s less expensive to go to a walk-in clinic than the ER, and it’s around the same price as your doctor. If you or a loved one has a minor health issue, you can get quick, affordable care here at Dr. Shima Hadidchi MD Family Practice.
