Athena Medical Clinic is a walk-in clinic for patients who need medical attention and are unable to receive the proper attention from their regular primary care physician or do not want to wait several hours at a hospital. While we also offer primary care and can schedule appointments, we understand that sickness or injuries can be sudden and do not operate on one’s schedule. Thankfully, we can offer immediate care by taking walk-in appointments. Depending on the patient’s condition, we can have the patient in and out within an hour. However, this can vary on certain factors. You may not be able to avoid unexpected illnesses and injuries in life, but you can avoid long waits in an emergency department by visiting Athena Medical Clinic.
From the moment a patient visits us to even after the patient leaves, we provide high-quality care and ensure the patient is able to continue whatever necessary treatment after visiting us. We can address a variety of conditions, including:
- Sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment
- Internal medicine (prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases)
- Preventative care
- Comprehensive physical examinations for school, sports, work or other functions
- Pulmonary function tests
- Flu and pneumonia shots
As a walk-in clinic, we understand that even minor health problems, such as a cold, can become cumbersome and interrupt one’s daily life. We can examine the patient’s condition and offer treatment recommendations for the best course of action. We are proud to provide patients with the comprehensive internal medicine they need. Depending on the condition, we can have patients in and out with the necessary treatment in under an hour.
Walk In For the Care You NeedIn the instance of a walk-in appointment, we have a team member at the front desk ready to help you receive the care you need. We will make sure you have everything you need to streamline the process. We not only have paper copies of the new patient forms in our office, but we also have online versions of the forms you can fill out beforehand. We will get you in to see the doctor as soon as we are able. If you are struggling with an illness or health condition that makes everyday functions difficult, do not hesitate to visit our clinic as soon as possible. Patients can schedule appointments ahead of time or walk in as needed.
We understand that schedules can be hectic with work, school, sports teams, extracurricular activities, family gatherings and more. Due to this, some patients may not be able to clear a specific amount of time in a schedule or match the schedule of a medical treatment center. We also understand that accidents happen and illnesses do not wait for the patient to be ready to get sick. Fortunately, patients can walk into Athena Medical Clinic without a pre-scheduled appointment. We will examine and treat the patient as soon as we are able. Once we diagnose the patient’s condition, we can administer or prescribe a treatment that works for the patient’s needs.
In some cases, the conditions we treat are not immediately life-threatening but can make life difficult. Some patients may attempt to treat the symptoms on their own, without understanding the actual issue. Other times, patients may feel silly at the aspect of taking their condition to a hospital; even though they need treatment regardless of the condition. We are here to help patients with medical conditions ranging in severity. By choosing to visit our clinic, you are walking into a facility with the necessary tools and skills to offer the necessary treatment for your ailment.
Instead of having to wait for your lab results to return from another location, we can get you the lab results as quickly as possible on-site. We can also continue to monitor a patient with follow-up visits if necessary. Our goal is to be able to efficiently treat our patients in order to send them on their way with a solution to their condition as soon as possible.
