When to visit our Walk-In Clinic
It’s important to understand when to visit a walk-in clinic. While our facility is well equipped to help most patients experiencing the issues mentioned above, it is not appropriate for life threatening illnesses or injuries. If, for example, you have a cut that is extremely deep and will not stop bleeding, an emergency room may be a better option than the walk-in clinic. It’s also good to note that even if your injury or illness is on the list of most commonly treated items, if it severe enough you may still need to be transported to a local emergency room. The RightCare Family Practice walk-in clinic facilities are a good option if you are unable to visit your normal primary care physician.
