5 Reasons Why Walk-In Clinics Are Better Than Traditional Clinics

5-Reasons-Why-Walk-In-Clinics-Are-Better-Than-Traditional-Clinics.jpg

Finding time in your busy schedule to go to the doctor can be nearly impossible. That’s because most traditional clinics operate during business hours and if you’re insured, copays can be large. Also, if you’re not insured, it can be quite expensive to go to a traditional clinic.

There are several reasons why going to a walk-in clinic is better than a traditional clinic. In addition to being open 7 days a week and being much more affordable than a traditional clinic, walk-in clinics don’t require appointments, and can in some cases, offer more comprehensive healthcare options than a traditional clinic.

Why a Walk-in Clinic is Better than a Traditional Clinic

Walk-In Clinics Are Better Suited for the Underinsured or Uninsured

How many times have you or a loved one not gone to see a doctor because you wrongly believed that you couldn’t afford it? In fact, many people do just this and they can end up with their condition worsening or even lose their life.

Some go to the emergency room where service is typically provided first and then patients are sent a usually huge medical bill later that only serves to make their financial situation worse!

Walk-in clinics are specifically created to fill the gap of health care for the underinsured or the uninsured. If everyone who could see a nurse for their ailments or injuries stayed out of the emergency room, the US would save $5 billion a year in medical costs.

That’s because the cost of medical care at a walk-in clinic is usually about half the costs of going to a traditional medical office and they take cash. Don’t delay going to see a medical professional just because you think you cannot afford it. Contact EZCare Clinic today to see how affordable it is to get quality medical care.

Walk-In Clinics Don’t Require Appointments

Another really great reason walk-in clinics are better than traditional clinics is that you don’t have to make an appointment. As a matter of fact, most walk-in clinics don’t take appointments! That’s because, with a walk-in clinic, you can simply walk-in, wait 15-20 minutes and then see a healthcare professional.

Walk-In Clinics Are More Affordable

Walk-in clinics are a lot more affordable than a regular clinic or doctor’s office. In fact, some health insurance companies will even waive the copay for a primary care visit; just make sure to contact them beforehand to discover any upfront costs. Either way, the costs of visiting a walk-in clinic are probably much cheaper than your copay.

One of the reasons walk-in clinics are considerably more affordable than a traditional clinic is that you’re able to see a variety of qualified health care professionals such as a Nurse Practitioner or a Physician’s Assistant. These healthcare professionals are highly trained and educated and are able to provide just as quality care as a physician.

At EZCare clinic, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional healthcare services at affordable prices. It’s only $89 for an initial visit.

Here are just a few of the healthcare professionals we have:

Psychologists – A psychologist is a mental health care professional that helps people understand their mental state and condition. They also help people create habits, processes and mental tools to control their emotional state and alleviate emotional pain. Our psychologists can help you with issues such as ADD/ADHD, dealing with addictions, anxiety disorder treatment, and weight loss.

General Practitioners – General Practitioners are primary care doctors that can treat acute medical conditions, evaluate a variety of other medical conditions and illnesses and help you build a primary care plan. They can then refer you to the correct specialists to treat whatever ailments you may have. They’re also really good at educating you about your body and any conditions you may have.

Nurses – More than likely you’ll also have a nurse assigned to your case. This person will be your point of contact for everything related to your condition or illness. If you have a question, this will be your immediate person of contact.

Walk-in clinics provide general medical services such as vaccines for the flu and hepatitis as well as provide routine labs, treatment for small cuts, strep throat and urinary tract infections.

At EZCare Clinic, we offer much more than general medical services that other walk-in clinics provide. We also provide women with health treatments, men’s health treatments, addiction recovery, weight loss programs and more. We truly do have everything you and your family need for their health all along with affordable prices at convenient times.

    Just came into this Walk-in clinic in San Francisco to begin a weight loss program and I am so excited to begin. I also plan to look into their ESA certification letter for my pet as I am having a few issues with my landlord trying to charge me extra to have him in the apartment. I just left the EZcare clinic and I am on my way to get the phentermine that was prescribed to me. I will post my progress in about a month….

    I am currently at this clinic and all I can talk about is how impressed I am of this walk-in clinic. I came in with no appointment and no clue if i wanted to be diagnosed for weight loss or for ADHD but the gentleman at the front desk informed me that the doctor on site could actually help me figure out a great way to begin both. I was prescribed an ADHD medication along with a few ADHD Treatments that actually involved a better diet and a small exercise regimen which will help me combat both my weight problem and my ADHD. I am Super excited to see the results!

    Walk-in clinics in san Francisco are a freakin’ nightmare! You go in with the intent to be seen by a doctor almost immediately and they have you in the lobby waiting for like 2-3 hours. I absolutely hate that! I came to this walk-in clinic because it was near me and because when I called the staff was really nice! I went in as a walk-in because I wanted to see how quickly i’d be seen. I filled out a general intake form and was literally seen 10-15 minutes after. This experience has changed my standards for walk-ins. Personally I am not interested in trying any other clinics at this point. EZCare clinic is officially my primary care provider!

    I haven’t had a more efficient medical experience in my life!

    I had a video meeting with Dr. Boudreau & she was thorough, informative and caring.

    My appointment time was set for 3:15 and it started at that exact moment. I can’t think of a time in my life when I wasn’t WAITING time after the actual appointment time. I found the closest & most affordable pharmacy near me and my prescription was ready less than an hour after we finished our online meeting.

    A few days later and I am already feeling a lot better.

    So this will be my first review ever! I am super stubborn when it comes to getting medical attention, only time I go is when something is falling off my body. In this case nothing was falling off but the pain and the reactions my body was having were pretty bad so I gave in and looked up a walk-in clinic near me, and I stumbled upon EZCare. Like a lot of people, I was skeptical at first but by the end of the appointment I was extremely satisfied with the level of care I had received from Dr. Stacie. I will be coming here for all my future medical needs.
