How can I save time by choosing MinuteClinic?Getting the medical care you need can often be a time-consuming affair. For some patients, it can be common to wait an hour or more to see a provider in a traditional health care setting. But at MinuteClinic, we strive to deliver quality care with convenient and efficient services.We offer a wide variety of health services, and whether you need treatment for a minor injury or an immunization, you'll get top-level care in a streamlined, efficient manner. MinuteClinic accomplishes this in several ways, such as through our visit scheduling options, having shorter wait times, and through the convenience of our locations.
How can scheduling an appointment save you time?Scheduling your visit ahead of time ensures that you’ll get to see a provider without delay. Just schedule an appointment online or in-person at a kiosk for an available appointment 7 days a week, including evenings and weekends. When it’s time for your visit, your provider will see you promptly, and before you know it, you’ll be done with your visit and getting on with your day.You can also save time by scheduling a telehealth visit. This option provides you with flexible online access to medical care professionals. Many of the same services that you’ll find at an in-person visit are also available through our telehealth offerings. That means you often won’t have to commute to one of our locations to receive the care you need — we'll bring the care to you and save you time in the process.
How long is the wait time at a MinuteClinic?The average wait time at a MinuteClinic is only 22 minutes. Compare that to the approximately 86-minute average wait time for an emergency room visit and 40-minute wait for a PCP (primary care physician) visit*. That's more than an hour shorter than most ER wait times and almost half the time of a PCP visit. That means that at MinuteClinic, you can get care without excessive wait times. And even with those savings in time, you can rest assured that our providers are committed to delivering care of the highest quality. Online and in-person scheduling are also available to quickly get you the help you need.*According to a 2020 independent market research study examining the emergency room market and related wait times.
