Retail medical clinics are becoming a popular alternative for basic medical care, especially when a doctor's appointment is not available or emergency room visit is not necessary.
MinuteClinic is the walk-in medical clinic inside more than 500 CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide.
• The clinics are staffed by certified nurse practitioners who can diagnose, prescribe and treat common illnesses or injuries, including some chronic conditions. • MinuteClinic is open seven days a week with no appointment necessary. • Patients can also request that a copy of the visit form be sent to the patient's primary care physician to be added to an ongoing medical file. • All medical care is strictly based on clinical guidelines that are approved by medical societies.
