Walk-in Clinics – Advantages & Disadvantages

Walk-in clinics are a cheap and cost effective health care facility which provides for medical help when the patient is suffering from routine or a non-malignant sort of an illness which does not need the help of a specialist.

They provide immediate relief to the patient when he or she is unable to wait for a longer duration to get some specialist’s appointment. The CCCs provide medical medical treatment for non-life threatening diseases like flu, acnes, warts etc. Some of them have facilities for immunization and testing urine and feces for various infections.

Walk-in clinics provide a cheap and handy health care facility which comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of Walk-in Clinics:


Minor Emergency Centers:
These clinics are sometimes labeled as minor emergency centers which are open in the evenings and also on the weekends which saves the hassle for making an appointment. They deal with all kinds of non-life threatening ailments and provide immediate medical care.

Reasonable Cost: Medical care at a walk-in clinic costs far less than the hospital emergency room for the same kind of ailment. The staff at the CCC decides if the patient is to be referred to the ER in case of a grave medical emergency.

Disadvantages of Walk-in Clinics:


Unpredictable Waiting Time
can be a major issue with walk-in clinics. This is due to the unpredictable nature of the patient arrival. Someday a clinic might be absolutely empty when you walk in but at some other time it might have a crowd and you would have to wait for an interminable time.

Less Personalized Care
is another factor which should be taken in mind while visiting a walk-in clinic. You cannot expect to have the doctor or nurse of your choice there as compared to the physician’s clinic.
