Walk-in Clinics FAQ
It’s getting harder to find a doctor. According to the AARP, America is short by about 16,000 primary care doctors. According to a study by Merritt Hawkins, a healthcare consulting company, the average wait to see a family physician for the first time ranged from 66 days in Boston, MA, to just five days in Dallas, TX. A walk-in clinic at FastMed Urgent Care in AZ or NC can help solve that problem. You never need an appointment at a FastMed walk-in clinic. We’re open every day of the year, including holidays. FastMed clinics operate with extended hours, so you can come in before of after work or school.
