We have all been there! Either we let symptoms go too long or an injury occurs and when we are in need of care, it is the PM hours on a weekend! If your Doctor is part of a large enough practice, there may be an on-call number for you to use for after hours, but an on-call Doctor cannot stitch up a lip over the phone. I had 2 occasions where I was in need of medical attention for my son after hours and I really could have used a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Las Vegas to run into. We live near a Hospital, but co-pays for a Hospital ER visit is $150 on our plan! Through #CollectiveBias I learned about these Walgreens Healthcare Clinics available around the Nation.

The first time I needed a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic was a Saturday night last spring! We had friends over for a UFC fight night and my son was craving attention. So, a friend sat on the couch with his elbow on the armrest and allowed my son to run and give him high 5’s repeatedly. It kept him amused and he could watch the fight at the same time. At one point, my son ran and tripped and did a face plant into the arm rest of the couch, missing the high 5! It really did not look too dramatic of a fall, but he stood up and opened his mouth and blood was oozing everywhere! I took him to the bathroom, had to calm him down because his screaming made the bleeding worse and I needed to see the damage. I quickly realized his upper teeth went from the inside corner of his moth and out through the lip. He had a hole in his lip! It is Saturday night and we have no clinics near us that can stitch him, so off we went to the Hospital ER with all of our friends! Everyone came to support him. He needed 2 stitches and we had a large co-pay because it was a Hospital and a wait as well. Across the street is a Walgreens that I went to to fill his antibiotics, but I really wished they could have had a clinic! It would have been such a better experience for my scared little boy!

The second time I needed a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic was the scariest for me. My son (same son) was younger and had symptoms of stuffiness. It was about 7pm on a Sunday night and I had given him a bath and can see his chest rising as he breathed in a shallow and rapid pace. I called the on-call Doctor who happened to be his actual Pediatrician who was on call. He had me hold the phone to him as he listened. He asked if I had a Nebulizer still (he knows our other son had asthma issues a while back & we had nebulizer for him) & said “I wish you lived nearby to a clinic to get him a treatment ASAP, but let me at least call in Albuterol to your pharmacy (Walgreens) and can you guys run out and pick it up?” We agreed and used Walgreens because they are always open the latest near us. He got his treatment, but had there been a Walgreens Healthcare clinic, I would have saved so much time and had him in ASAP!

  1. I Didn't Realize The Walgreens Clinic Had Such Great Service They Add That Personal Touch Of Actually Caring I Will Definitely Keep This In Mind Next Time God Forbid The Kids Have A Issue, Thank You!!

  2. We have utilized two different urgent care clinics in our area (for after-hours medical needs, of course – injuries and severe bouts of pneumonia never strike during office hours!), and both times the service was great, but the wait time sucked. And, we still had to deal with separate waits at nearby pharmacies for medication refills. We DO have Walgreens in our area, and I love that they have these health clinics! Whenever the next mishap occurs, I'll definitely check there first. 🙂
