Walk-In Clinic Q & A

What is a walk-in clinic?

Rather than requiring scheduled appointments for medical care, Essential Medical Clinic is a walk-in clinic. What that means is you don’t have to book an appointment before arriving at the clinic. Simply walk in and get treated promptly without long wait times.

Which walk-in services are available?

Using a walk-in clinic is a fast, convenient process, as you don’t have to arrive at a specific time. The team at Essential Medical Clinic offers the following walk-in services:

  • Men’s and women’s wellness exams
  • Health screenings
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening
  • Medical-grade dietary supplements
  • Medical weight loss
  • Sick visits
  • Chronic disease management
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Medication prescriptions
  • Specialist referrals

Walk-in clinics offer the same exceptional service as traditional primary care clinics, but you arrive when you’d like to or choose from virtual telemedicine appointments if you can’t make it to the office.

What happens during a walk-in appointment?

When you walk into Essential Medical Clinic, you’re seen promptly by a provider. They check your weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs. Your physician discusses your medical history and any symptoms you may have. They complete a physical examination to evaluate your eyes, ears, throat, heartbeat, breathing, abdomen, limbs, and more.

During a women’s wellness exam, your doctor can complete a routine pelvic exam with a Pap test to screen for signs of cervical cancer. Prostate cancer screening is available during men’s health exams.

Your doctor may suggest you undergo diagnostic testing procedures, such as blood tests, urine tests, nasal or throat swabs, asthma tests, allergy testing, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

Which walk-in treatments might I need?

After physical and diagnostic testing, your Essential Medical Clinic provider may offer:

  • Further diagnostic testing
  • Botox® and fillers
  • Immunizations
  • Birth control for women
  • Medical-grade supplements
  • Prescription medications
  • Medical weight loss
  • Health education
  • IV therapy

They take as much time as you need to answer questions and let you know when to schedule your next physical exam or follow-up appointment. Your primary care physician refers out for complex medical problems, giving you names of highly skilled specialists in your area when necessary. 

The next time you need same-day medical care with quality providers who care about your health and well-being, schedule an appointment with Essential Medical Clinic by phone or online, or walk in today.
