Sometimes your primary care physician just isn’t available for an appointment anytime soon, so you’ll have to schedule your appointment for a week or so later. When you’re ill or injured and the situation is somewhat urgent, you’re not going to want to wait a week or more, are you? In instances like this, it’s just so much more convenient and prudent to go to a walk-in clinic instead. With Immediate Care of Oklahoma, you’ll be able to get primary care on a walk-in basis without the need for an appointment and without wait times. You can come on by today, in fact!
What is primary care?
Primary care is the kind of healthcare your doctor/family physician provides. It can be care for common conditions, like the flu or sore muscles, so if you have any kind of minor, non-life-threatening illness or injury, you can get primary care. However, primary care is more than just that.
With primary care, patients can get physical examinations and other kinds of preventive healthcare that can prevent health conditions from occurring or worsening. And if a patient has a condition that has already gotten progressively worse and is now a chronic condition (like diabetes), a primary care doctor can help to manage the symptoms of the condition.
You and anyone else in your family of any age will benefit from primary care.
What is a walk-in clinic?
The problem with primary care is that most primary care physicians are available on an appointment basis, so you’ll have to make an appointment in order to get service. But with a primary care walk-in clinic, primary care physicians are available on a walk-in basis instead. This means you’ll be able to simply walk in for service and see a primary care physician right away, right on the spot!
Some primary care walk-in clinics can provide services most primary care physicians just can’t provide, such as X-rays. We provide these services any many more here at Immediate Care of Oklahoma.
