Express Walk-In Clinic Offering Fast, Reliable Treatment in Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg & Surrounding Areas
Getting medical treatment from an express walk-in clinic is becoming an increasingly popular choice for people with urgent conditions who don’t have time to schedule a doctor’s appointment in advance, but whose condition doesn’t merit the emergency services of an ER. But what’s really the difference between the ER, a walk-in clinic, and your physician’s office? The doctors at South Tampa Immediate Care are here to explain the benefits of each of these healthcare facilities and where you should go to seek treatment for a variety of conditions.
An appointment at your physician’s office may be fine for check-ups, prescription refills, and chronic health issues, but there are many instances in which you require immediate treatment and can’t wait for an appointment. Traditionally, the emergency room has been the only option for people suffering from broken bones, lacerations, sudden fevers, and similar conditions, but at what price? Rising healthcare costs, combined with a national reduction in the number of emergency rooms, mean that you could wait for hours on a triage list and pay hundreds of dollars just to have a doctor examine your sore throat. An express walk-in clinic like South Tampa Immediate Care, on the other hand, offers the “no-appointment” convenience of the ER, but with much faster service and at a fraction of the cost.
Some conditions that can be treated at an express walk-in clinic include burns, rashes, lacerations, colds, acute asthma attacks, flu, UTIs, ear and eye infections, sinus infections, sprains, strains, and allergy attacks. South Tampa Immediate Care is a walk-in clinic that also offers many of the same services that you would find in an emergency room (X-rays, lab tests, splinting, foreign body removal, nebulizer treatment, and EKG), in addition to many services offered by a physician’s office (school and sports physicals, flu shots, drug screening, and non-intravenous injections). Our express walk-in clinic also offers several other services that aren’t available at emergency rooms or most physicians’ offices, such as on-site pharmacy services* and a virtual waiting room.
