Do you have a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic?  The closest one to us is Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Nashville.  It would be great if we had one in our town.  As a Walgreens shopper and Balance Rewards member, we already save money on medicine, food, and other items by shopping there, and it would be great if we could see a doctor at the same place we get prescriptions filled.

With a Walgreens Clinic, we’d have a convenient place to go, not just for minor sicknesses and injuries, but also for ongoing treatments, vaccines, and more!

For me the best thing about having a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic, would be the ability to have a walk-in appointment any day of the week.  Often when you most need a doctor it is hard to get an appointment with your regular doctor.  And on the weekend, we are limited to a couple of local clinics or the emergency room, both of which take up a lot of time and can be expensive.

There have been many times, when a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic would have come in handy for my family and me.  Today I will discuss just a few examples that come to mind.

1.  Toothache – I’ve had a couple of toothaches in the past, which eventually required pain medicine and a root canal.  One of these times, the abscessed tooth started hurting over the weekend.  My dentist is closed on Friday, and so I just had to sit around in a world of pain for the entire weekend.  Because I didn’t have insurance at the time, I did not want to go to the emergency room, but if I’d had a Walgreens Clinic, I could have perhaps gotten an antibiotic and some pain medicine to hold me over until I could get a root canal on Monday.

2. Migraines – I’ve suffered my migraines since I was a kid, and they can often be debilitating.  I have a prescription medicine that I take to prevent these and another that I take to treat the attacks.  This particular medicine is limited to 10 pills a month, so it’s very easy to run out.  When my prescriptions expire, it would be great to just go to a Walgreens Clinic to get my prescription renewed.

3. Wasp Sting – I’m allergic to wasps and bees.  Any time I get stung, it is a big ordeal.  Last time I got stung on the foot, my foot was swollen for two or three days.  It’s painful; it itches, and it basically prevents me from doing anything. It’s also next to impossible to sleep.  I swore the next time I got stung, I would just go to the doctor and get shot and/or medicine to help treat this and shorten the time I have to suffer.

4. Sick Kids – The time you are most anxious to find a doctor is when you have a sick child.  This is the case especially on weekends, during the holidays, and on vacation.  This past Christmas, my stepson was sick with a very high fever.  His dad took him to the doctor very late in the day on Christmas Eve.  But he spent much of the day debating and considering a place to take him.  It would have been great to have a Walgreens Clinic as an option for us.

Can you think of a time when you could have used a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic?  What do you think you would like best about the Walgreens clinic?
