Your primary doctor is a great resource for healthcare advice and primary care, but sometimes it’s not convenient, and other times it’s just not the best option. Sometimes the doctor won’t be able to see you for a week or more, so you’ll have to wait for an appointment. This just isn’t convenient, to say the least, when you have a minor but urgent condition like an infection or a sports injury. In these instances, you’ll want to come to a walk-in doctor’s office instead. Here at Immediate Care of Oklahoma, we are your walk-in doctor’s office near you in OKC.
What is a walk-in doctor’s office?
A walk-in doctor’s office is a doctor’s office where you can go in for a same-day appointment. No appointment booking is necessary. This is especially convenient when your primary doctor isn’t available and when the situation is urgent.
A walk-in office is able to provide primary healthcare. This means they can diagnose and treat common conditions that are not life-threatening. Please remember that for conditions that are or that you believe could be life-threatening, you must go to the ER (emergency room). Only the ER is properly equipped to help patients with life-threatening conditions.
What can a walk-in doctor’s office help me with?
If your condition is not life-threatening, then a walk-in office can take care of you! In fact, these clinics can take care of anyone in your family of any age.
A walk-in clinic can provide the same services your primary doctor provides, and even some additional services like X-rays and lab tests. With us at Immediate Care of Oklahoma, you’ll also have access to the following services:
- Healthful tips and family wellness services
- Wellness shots and vaccinations
- Treatment for allergies and allergic reactions
- Treatments for asthma and minor respiratory issues
- Treatment for minor burns
- Bandaging and casting for minor injuries
- Ear, eye, and sinus infection treatment
- Flu and cold symptom relief
- Stitches for minor cuts
- Treatment for patients with motor vehicle accident injuries
- Worker’s compensation services and employer drug testing
We can provide additional services too, so if you or a loved one has any kind of minor illness or injury, you can come see us for treatment.
