Walk-In Clinic Etiquette:
Usually there is a wait for these clinics. So the best thing to do is to go in, and put your name down, and come back. Ask the receptionist how long the wait is and they will tell you. Again, this is an estimated wait time.
It is not the receptionist's fault if the doctor takes too long with one patient and the wait time is long than it is estimated. (People have yelled at me many many times, that I'M suppose to know. No, no and no.)
Always check back with the receptionist when you do come back. Don't just come back and sit down. We see TONS of people and we lose track of who is who.
If you phone in to put your name down on the day sheet, the receptionists will not do it. You HAVE to go in IN PERSON. When it's your turn to see the doctor and you are not there; the receptionist WILL NOT phone you.
Do not go to a walk-in clinic before closing; reason being is that doctors have a limit of seeing a number of patients per day. For where I work, it is 50 patients per doctor. By the end of the day doctors cap out. Always call before going in. But during the day it should be fine.
There are some prescription drugs that walk-in doctors will not fill; even Tylenol #3.
In some strange cases there are doctors who will refuse to give any contraceptive advice, fill any birth control pills, give you the morning after pill or talk about abortion due to their religious beliefs.
Put this on your profile if you know someone who has died of Cancer or whom maybe suffering from it.
