Fall is a wonderful time of year, but it’s also a time when a high number of people are in need of medical care. Flu shots, sport injury treatment, and other types of seasonal care are viewed by medical community during the fall than any other time of the year.
If you’re trying to decide where to receive the treatment that you need, these are all reasons that you should consider a walk-in clinic!
Illness Prevention and Treatment
Walk-in clinics are the most convenient way to receive your flu shot and ensure that patients are getting the most immediate illness treatment and prevention!
Most walk-in clinics don’t require an appointment and have extended hours, which means that even busy patients won’t have to wait too long in order to receive care. And just like a doctor’s office, provider teams will work with your insurance company to provide the flu shot at little to no cost to you. If you’ve waited too long to prevent an illness and are in need of treatment instead, we can help with that too!
From a stuffy nose to sinus pain, your local walk-in clinic will be able to diagnose and provide the medication you need to treat your condition. Even if the condition can’t be healed, we can help to make symptoms more manageable until you make a full recovery!
An Alternative to the Emergency Room
Walk-in clinics are the ideal alternative to the emergency room. An emergency room can lead to long wait times for most patients and cause a variety of other problems for time-strapped patients. Additionally, a walk-in clinic provides a fast and immediate alternative for a majority of patients.
That means even if you’re only here for a flu shot, you’ll still be seen in a reasonable amount of time! Walk-in clinics offer many of the same services as an emergency room at a fraction of the cost.
Quick Treatment When Injury Strikes
When a fall sports related injury strikes, you need quick treatment. Waiting too long for injury treatment can actually cause that injury to become worse or lead to other injuries.
At a walk-in clinic, patients can receive imaging tests, braces for injuries, and immediate pain relief for their sudden fall injuries. Simply visit any AFC Urgent Care Center for more information!
Lab and STD Testing that is quickly available during busy medical seasons
Patients need to understand that a walk-in clinic also provides lab and STD testing at a convenient setting, even during a busy medical season like the fall/winter!
At a walk-in clinic, medical teams can administer blood tests to help diagnose a wide variety of medical conditions while also ensuring that patients get the absolute care they need. STD testing is also a service that is available to patients
