Walk-in urgent care clinics are often the best choice for your non-emergency medical needs. For example, if you need to see a medical professional to diagnose flu-like symptoms, you could end up waiting for weeks to see your regular physician. On the other hand, if you go to the ER, you could wait all night and pay thousands of dollars, while possibly getting exposed to more serious illnesses.
