Public Walk-In Clinic
NOTE: Due to a declining number of clinics offering walk-in services, we sometimes have high patient volume resulting in a heavy backlog, and at times it may be necessary to close the clinic early to accommodate patients registered earlier in the evening.
- Thursday 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm Open to the Public
- Saturday 9:00 am – 1:00 pm Open to the Public
