I recently had the pleasure of visiting Walgreens Healthcare Clinic. If you are not familiar with the Walgreens Healthy Care Clinic you should be because they are a re a great alternative to an emergency or even your doctor. The clinic are open 7 days a week and they are always staffed with trained licensed professional.
Think it is a weekend your doctor is closed and you feel terrible. Lets face it your not at the point that you want to head ot the ER and be stuck waiting hours. Walgreens Health Care Clinic are a great option. The Healthcare Professionals are in store every day except for Christmas and New years. So you can go get the help of a medial professional everyday! If you work non traditional hours, are new to an area, because they are open nights and weekends it is a great option.
A great feature of the Walgreens Website in the Healthcare Clinic area you can look to see how long of a wait time it is to see the doctor so you have an idea before you head over.
How Much does a visit to Walgreens Healthcare Clinic cost? they take most insurance and the cost can be a copay amount. Also if you don’t have medical insurance the cost is $89 .. to see a doctor or nurse practitioner. I noticed on the web site they are currently offering a special of $39 for back to school physicals. My doctor charges way more for a office visit without insurance..like $165, and I have to wait to see her over a hour when I had an appointment. Walgreens Healthcare Clinic are a great option for my family because it is affordable and convenient . For family without insurance it is a no brainer, I myself have been without health care and the Healthcare clinic have been a life saver for my family when it was needed.

So what to expect at a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic:
Then you head inside You can see the Healthcare clinic from the front of the store. Headback to the clinic Headback to the clinic. You check in at the check in kiosk if needed you can ask for assistance, if there is a registration helper at the desk. It is a simple screen to fill out.
During my visit I was able to speak with the Registration helper and Nurse Practitioner on staff and I have to say she was a lovely lady. She let me know she spends about 20 minutes with each patient after they are registered. That is great she really takes the time to assess the problem properly.
