We are unable to fill out forms and provide letters during Walk-In. Please feel free to leave them with us. It will take a minimum of 2 weeks for us to complete them for you.
IN AN EMERGENCY, DO NOT COME TO THE WALK-IN CLINIC. CALL 911 OR GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR NEAREST HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM.
Why do we have a Walk-In Clinic?
Over the past several years, we have adopted a walk-in model for urgent visits when your child is ill and needs to be seen within a day or two. This means that every day, our registered patients can been seen walk-in basis. There are two main reasons why we have chosen to do this:
1) It provides equal access to all of our patients and ensures that any of our patients can be seen on any day they are ill. There is no such thing as “no appointments left” for a given day as long as parents respect the walk-in clinic hours and are prepared to wait.
2) It attempts to separate the “well visit” patients, who are not likely to be contagious, from the ill patients. This is particularly important for families who bring their newborns and young infants for well visits.
The wait to be seen at the walk-in is variable and unpredictable. Sometimes there is no waiting time, and sometimes the wait can be more than one hour. While we strive to be as efficient as possible and respect your time, we hope that our patients appreciate that our goal is to provide the best care possible, and some visits require more time.
