Walk-In Visits
Many of our FHCSD primary care clinics offer walk-in visits without an appointment. Wait times for walk-in patients may vary widely depending on the medical needs of other patients.

If there are more walk-in patients than the clinic is able to see, our medical staff will assess every walk-in patient and determine who may be seen that day. Those not seen by our medical staff will be encouraged to schedule an appointment for a subsequent day. Please note that our staff strives to communicate scheduling delays to our patients.

What to Bring
Please bring the following information to every patient visit at an FHCSD clinic:

  •  Your insurance card (if you have one)
  • The medication bottles of your current medications (including vitamins, herbs and dietary supplements)
  •  Your child’s immunization card (for pediatric visits)
