Short description of Minute Clinics
Cold weather brings a rise in bronchitis, ear infections, influenza, sinus infections and strep throat. For these common winter illnesses – as well as allergies, bladder infections, ear infections, pink eye and styes – MinuteClinic provides a consultation with a health care professional, a prescription when clinically appropriate and the choice of having it filled onsite. MinuteClinic offers a clear, straight-forward directory of the conditions we treat, along with an up-front list of their costs. MinuteClinic is: Quick (about 15-minute visits and no appointment needed); Affordable (treatments cost between $28 and $110, and reimbursed by most insurance plans). Convenient (open seven days a week, located near pharmacies). Our innovative model puts qualified nurse practitioners and physician assistants out in front, both in the care of their patients and in their careers.
