The concept of a night clinic revolves around getting medical care when your regular health care provider is not available. You may be thinking, “Isn’t that what the ER is for?” For life-threatening or very serious medical concerns, that’s true. But for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses that still require medical care, the best option is to visit a night clinic.
When Should You Visit a Night Clinic?
Night clinics provide all sorts of medical services, including physicals, flu shots, gynecological exams, vaccinations, and general health education. For many people, getting to their regular physician’s office to receive these services during business hours is very difficult. Work and other obligations can get in the way. A night clinic is the perfect solution to get you the medical services you need around your schedule.
A night clinic also diagnoses and treats a variety of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. These include but are not limited to:
- Sprains and strains
- Cold and flu symptoms
You may also receive blood tests, X-rays, STD testing, occupational health services, EKG tests, DOT physicals, and sports medicine services.
