Walk-In Clinic

What is a walk-in clinic?

A walk-in clinic is a health care service that allows you to connect with your provider without scheduling a routine office visit. It’s a great fit for times when symptoms arise suddenly and you need relief as soon as possible. 


Like urgent care, a walk-in clinic offers the chance to begin a path toward relief right away. It’s an outstanding option for issues that don’t rise to the level of a medical emergency but require prompt attention.


Parents especially appreciate the ability to connect with their child’s provider when symptoms arise. When you have a child who is in pain or unwell, it can be stressful for you and everyone involved. Prompt medical attention helps parents rest assured their little one is in the best of hands.

What kinds of issues can be treated through a walk-in clinic?

The team at Northside Primary Care brings a wealth of experience and training to their roles. Practitioners can diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, helping you get back on your feet and back into the swing of normal routines.


Some of the issues that bring people in for walk-in clinic visits include:


  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Minor lacerations
  • Sprains and strains
  • Cough
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Rash
  • Allergic reactions
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Diarrhea and constipation
  • Nausea and vomiting


These are just a few of the common complaints that the walk-in clinic can effectively treat. When you seek care from a provider you already know and trust, you gain convenience and comfort when compared to waiting for hours in a crowded emergency room.

How do I know if a walk-in clinic is the right fit for my needs?

It isn’t always easy to know where to turn for acute care. While Northside Primary Care can diagnose and treat many different conditions, there are circumstances in which emergency medical treatment is the right course of action.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
