Do you need an appointment for a walk-in clinic?
You do not need an appointment to visit a walk-in clinic as they are designed to provide patients with accessible and convenient medical care when their primary care physicians are unavailable. If you need specific services, such as a sports physical or vaccination, you can make an appointment if you need to.
At Medical Access Urgent Care, we provide most of our services to walk-in patients, but you can also book an appointment with us either on our website or by calling us directly.
Can walk-in clinics give prescriptions?
At an urgent care center, your physician can prescribe you any number of medications to help you feel better. There are some medications that require monitoring and follow-up appointments, so although a physician at an urgent care center can prescribe you a long-term medication, your primary care physician will be responsible for follow-up maintenance appointments. For these reasons and others, we will forward your diagnosis and treatment (including medications) to your primary care physician after your visit to Medical Access Urgent Care in Alexandria, VA.
Physicians at urgent care centers can prescribe antibiotics, one-time maintenance medications when the patient ran out of refills (such as medications for cholesterol, blood pressure, or diabetes), short-term pain medications, asthma medication, allergy medication, antiviral medication (to treat the flu, for example), or medications to treat stomach conditions such as acid reflux, or constipation. Some urgent care centers can even prescribe short-term pain medication.
There are some medications patients may not be able to get from an urgent care center, however. These include long-term pain medications, narcotics, and anti-anxiety medications. At Medical Access Urgent Care in Alexandria, we offer primary care and preventive care as well as urgent care services. If you’re looking for a primary care physician in Alexandria, VA, then you find qualified, board-certified physicians at Medical Access Urgent Care.
How much does a doctor’s visit cost out of pocket?
If you visit an urgent care center without insurance, you will end up having to pay for your visit. The exact cost depends on the exact services you receive. The most services you receive, the most expensive the visit will be. For example, your base visit will cost a specific amount set by the clinic, but if you require x-rays or lab work, your fee will go up from there.
The average cost of a visit to an urgent care center is anywhere between $100-$200. This may seem like quite a bit, and it is, but it’s must significantly less than the cost of a visit to the hospital emergency room where the cost is anywhere from $150-$3,000. At Medical Access Urgent Care, we accept most major health insurance plans, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, but we also offer affordable self-pay options and monthly specials to our uninsured patients. With our specials, you can feel better without having to spend a lot.
