Walk-In Visits

What is a walk-in clinic?

A healthcare option that’s sometimes called a “retail clinic,” walk-in medicine may be provided by a practice devoted to patients who have no regular family physician, or it may be combined with a traditional primary care practice, such as Livonia Premier Aesthetics.

Walk-in clinics typically treat patients suffering from issues that require a doctor’s care, but aren’t urgent or life-threatening. For example, if you need a physical exam for sports participation or you have a sore throat that won’t go away, you’re an excellent candidate for walk-in care. If, on the other hand, you have a cut that needs stitches, you’d be better served at an urgent care facility, and if you suspect you’re having a stroke or heart attack, you’ll need emergency treatment at a hospital or other facility.

What are some illnesses and conditions treated at a walk-in clinic?

Virtually any reason you’d see a primary care physician is likely suitable for a walk-in clinic visit. This can be invaluable if you’re traveling or if you’ve recently moved and haven’t arranged a primary care doctor. Common reasons for walk-in clinic visits include:

  • Mild asthma attacks
  • Back pain
  • Bruises, bumps, and minor cuts
  • Checkups and/or well visits
  • Participation exams, such as for camp, school, or sports activities
  • Department of Transportation exams
  • Ear infections
  • Fevers, coughs, and sore throats
  • Flu shots
  • Lab work (in clinics such as Livonia Premier Aesthetics, which has an in-office lab)
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Sprains, strains, and muscle aches
  • Urinary tract infections

How are walk-in clinics different from urgent care facilities?

There is overlap between services offered by walk-in and urgent care clinics, just as there is between urgent care facilities and emergency rooms. However, there are differences also. Some of these include:

Wait times: Urgent care clinics usually treat the most severe injuries first, while walk-in clinics typically use a first-come, first-serve sequence.

Cost: Generally, services provided by walk-in clinics tend to be more affordable, since these are often less complex than urgent care injuries and illness, but cost usually comes down to treatment of your condition.

Convenience: Livonia Premier Aesthetics is set up to treat a wide range of non-urgent medical conditions. The doctors and caregivers put a priority on personalized care, whether you’re a regular patient or here for the first time.
