Walk-in clinics are available throughout the country to provide all individuals access to affordable and essential healthcare, regardless of whether they have insurance or a family doctor, making them an essential component of the healthcare system.

When to visit the walk-in clinic vs the ER?


Although walk-in clinics and emergency rooms both provide care for unplanned medical conditions, they differ quite a bit in which conditions they specifically can treat. Walk-in clinics often provide similar services as primary care physicians, often treating minor illnesses and injuries or providing patients with primary care services such as physical examinations, regular health screenings, and any other testing or evaluations that are typically recommended for the general population to ensure their overall health. Walk-in clinics are a great option to provide essential preventative care for individuals who either do not have access to a primary care physician or who are unable to schedule an appointment with their primary care physician due to scheduling conflicts. The emergency room is not intended for those looking for general primary care. Patients who go to the emergency room have likely incurred a life- or limb-threatening health condition that requires immediate medical attention. Emergency rooms will also typically have the capacity to take in patients 24/7 and can provide emergency surgical procedures when necessary and appropriate, whereas walk-in clinics will not have the capacity to provide surgical procedures.

What conditions are treated at the walk-in clinic?


Walk-in services can be provided by a variety of different health clinics, ranging from primary care services to more urgent care services. Typically, walk-in clinics will include a variety of primary care services as well as health care services for non-life or limb-threatening injuries or illnesses.

Some common conditions that are often treated at walk-in clinics include:

– Minor infections
– Cold and flu
– Strep throat and COVID
– Respiratory virus
– Allergy and asthma
– Nausea and vomiting
– Minor injuries
– Abdominal pain
– Physical examinations
– Blood pressure tests, pregnancy tests, drug tests

The specific treatments that are available at a walk-in clinic will depend on the capacity and access to resources that the individual clinic has, but these services mentioned above, and many more, are provided by Immediate Care of Oklahoma for each of our patients.

What are the benefits of the walk-in clinic?


There are many benefits of choosing to receive health care from walk-in clinics rather than from traditional primary care clinics, with the most significant benefits including the convenience of walk-in clinics as appointments are not necessary, the clinics are typically open for longer and more days per week, and the waiting times are generally shorter.

Other benefits of walk-in clinics include:

– Insurance is typically accepted but not necessary;
– Referrals to pharmacies or specialists;
– Prescriptions for recommended medications;
– Vaccinations and immunizations are available;
– Walk-in diagnostic services;
– Cost-effective care; and
– Availability on weekends and holidays.

Most walk-in clinics provide all necessary primary and urgent care services, but at a lower cost and with more convenience as patients can visit the clinic whenever works best for them as well as last minute and will typically be able to see a health care provider and complete their appointment within an hour. Walk-in clinics provide high-quality care for even the busiest of patients that is flexible for any schedule, offering primary care services as well as treatments for unplanned medical conditions to ensure that all patients have access to essential health care.

Do you need an appointment to visit the walk-in clinic?


Walk-in clinics do not require appointments from their patients but may sometimes provide the option to schedule an appointment within their open hours for those who can plan accordingly. However, those who do accept appointments may have a limited amount of time slots available but will be able to reschedule their patients who would prefer to have a scheduled appointment as soon as possible to ensure that healthcare providers will be available to see them, eliminating any time spent in a waiting room. Some walk-in clinics will also provide an online queue service where patients can join a virtual waitlist that allows them to wait for the next available time slot to see a healthcare provider from the comfort of their own home rather than having to sit in the waiting room for the same period.
