What is a walk-in clinic?
A walk-in clinic is a non-ambulatory medical provider that provides immediate treatment for patients with acute illnesses. A walk-in clinic allows a patient to get care without the need for an appointment: a patient simply walks into the clinic to get care on a first come, first serve basis.
Unlike an ER, an urgent care center specializes in minor injury and illness treatment. For example, a walk-in clinic provides a great resource for patients that need to get care for seasonal illnesses, injury treatment, and other forms of preventive care.
Healthcare advantages of a walk-in clinic
A walk-in clinic provides many benefits for consumers that need to get care quickly at an affordable rate. For example, a walk-in clinic provides more affordable rates than an emergency room for similar services such as x-rays, lab testing, and blood tests. Additionally, the ability to walk in for care at any times allows even the busiest patients to recieve symptom treatment.
