Should I go to the Hospital or a Walk-In Clinic?

There is one thing to ask yourself when figuring out if you should go to the hospital emergency room or a walk-in clinic: is your medical concern life-threatening or not? If the answer to that question is yes, do not hesitate to go to your nearest emergency room immediately. However, if your medical concern is not a life-threatening emergency, a walk-in clinic like ours at AFC Urgent Care Clairemont is a much better option. The reason that a walk-in clinic is a better option for any medical concern that is not life-threatening concerns your time and money! Since walk-in clinics do not treat medical problems that are life-threatening emergencies but reroute all individuals in such situations to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible, they are not obligated to prioritize patients based on the severity of their condition. Instead, they operate on a first-come, first-served basis, which significantly reduces the long wait times that you are all but guaranteed to experience at emergency rooms. Most patients are able to see a provider within 30 minutes of arriving at a walk-in clinic! Moreover, walk-in clinics are far less expensive than emergency room services. As such, a walk-in clinic is a more beneficial option for any non-life-threatening medical concern.

Is a Walk-In Clinic the same as an Urgent Care?

There are many similarities to walk-in clinics and urgent care clinics, especially with regard to both clinics accepting walk-in appointments! That said, urgent care clinics are typically walk-in clinics with enhanced capabilities. The primary difference between walk-in clinics and urgent care clinics is the guaranteed presence of a provider at the latter but not the former. While this is not always the case, walk-in clinics are often led by nurse practitioners or the equivalent. In general, the presence of a provider at urgent care clinics allows for a greater breadth of services offered.

If you urgently need to see a provider for a non-life-threatening medical condition, come to a walk-in clinic like AFC Urgent Care Clairemont in San Diego, California! You can find our clinic at 5671 Balboa Ave in San Diego, California. Our doors are open seven days a week, from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
