Walk-in Appointments Q & A

What are walk-in appointments?

Walk-in appointments are an opportunity to see your doctor at Premier Medical Care without having to book in advance. You simply turn up at the walk-in clinic and wait for your turn.

Walk-in appointments are designed for patients who need to see a doctor as soon as possible and can’t wait for a regular appointment.

Because you don’t have an appointment, you might have to wait longer than you would if you booked in advance. It depends on how many other patients are waiting. However, walk-in appointments are quicker and less costly than visiting a hospital for treatment.

What conditions are treated at walk-in appointments?

Apart from the most serious medical emergencies, you can seek help for any acute, short term health problem at a walk-in appointment. Some of the more common conditions patients visit Premier Medical Care for include:

  • Coughs and colds
  • Pneumonia
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Infectious diseases
  • Back pain
  • Chest infections
  • Eye infections
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Croup
  • Earaches
  • Fevers
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sinus infections
  • Skin problems
  • Sore throats
  • Sprains and strains

You can also have injuries attended to, including wound care and stitching, repair of minor fractures, and treatments for severe bruising.

What shouldn’t I use walk-in appointments for?

Walk-in appointments are for people who don’t need emergency life-saving treatment. If you or someone you’re with has severe injuries from a fall or an auto accident, you should call 911. You also need to visit a hospital if you or whoever you’re with has problems like:

  • Stroke symptoms
  • Heart attack symptoms
  • Losing consciousness
  • Having seizures
  • Bleeding heavily

If you need routine instead of urgent care, you should make a regular appointment. That includes annual physicals, immunizations, and screening tests.

If you have a chronic health problem, regular appointments are best for your routine checkups. However, if you’re having a flare-up related to your chronic health situation, you should go for a walk-in appointment.
