Many people in Waynesboro use our walk-in clinic each and every day, and we’re proud to offer this vital service to the community as a whole. Many patients call us to ask whether or not their current situation is suited for an emergency room or our walk-in clinic; while this is a great thing, it got us thinking about ways to inform people about the most common things we can treat here, freeing up emergency rooms for true emergencies and getting those with minor illnesses the treatment they need quickly.

Do You Need Immediate Care?

The Purpose of Walk-In Clinics

Before reading over the various things our walk-in clinic treats on a daily basis, it is important to first understand the motives behind a walk-in clinic, when it is advantageous to the patient, and what we provide to the greater community. We opened our immediate care center with the idea in mind to treat patients that needed to see a doctor, perhaps even their primary care physician, during unforeseeable circumstances that require more urgent care. By filling this role in the greater list of our patient’s health care options, we offer them personalized care for minor ailments that is not contingent upon the wait times found at regional hospitals and medical centers while simultaneously helping to keep local emergency rooms free to treat those with more dire situations.

What We Treat

We offer immediate care and treatment for illnesses and injuries including:

  • Colds, flu, and other viral illnesses
  • Bronchitis, pneumonia and asthma attacks
  • Ear, throat, and sinus infections
  • Bladder infections
  • Rashes, poison ivy, and allergic reactions
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration
  • Sprains, strains and sports injuries
  • Wound repair, mole removal, and abscess drainage
  • Work-related injuries and minor surgical procedures
  • Lacerations (cuts), abrasions (scrapes), and splinters

These services are in addition to offering same-day physicals, occupational medicine, women’s health care, immunizations, vaccinations, and more. Many of these issues can be, in certain instances, severe enough to visit the emergency room instead; give our staff or the emergency room a call if you need guidance on which location may be best based on your situation.
