The following is a short list of what can be treated at the afterhours clinics.
Cold and Flu Symptoms
Experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms is a common reason why people choose to go to a clinic that offers after hour services.
A sore throat can be an early sign of an oncoming cold or flu or it could be the beginnings of strep throat. Either way, professional medical assistance is necessary in order to address the sore throat.
A strain or sprain requires emergency medical services and after-hours clinics are able to provide their patients with the basic medical care services needed for these injuries.
A bladder infection tends to come on quickly and for that reason, patients need to be seen by a medical professional as quickly as possible in order to get the proper medication to treat the condition.
One never knows when they are going to be bitten by an insect or stung by a bee, making the ability to address the bite or sting without an appointment a very convenient option.
Medication renewals, treatment for small cuts and some routine labs.
**All appointments will be telephone screened and must be pre-booked. Primarily all appointments will be done over the phone to ensure the safety of yourself, the community and the staff.
