Duane Reade Clinics, also known as DR Walk-In Medical Care, provide a range of medical services, including standard and advanced care, tests, screenings and vaccinations. Licensed physicians and licensed family nurse practitioners staff the clinics, which accept most major insurance plans. Duane Reade clinics do not treat life-threatening conditions.
Standard care services available at these clinics range from general check-ups, treatment for colds and sore throats to treatment of urinary tract infections and allergic reactions. Advanced care includes treatment of sprains and minor burns. The clinics offer various tests and screenings, including urinalysis, pregnancy tests, blood glucose tests and tests for mononucleosis, strep throat and influenza. Tests and screenings are available only as part of an examination. Vaccinations available at DR Walk-In include hepatitis A and B, pneumonia, shingles, tetanus and the range of childhood vaccinations.
Walk-in clinics do not treat major injuries, such as broken bones, and usually do not have x-ray capabilities. Most urgent care clinics do. While similar in ease of access and even staffing, depending on location and owner, walk-in clinics and urgent care clinics do not always provide the same range of services.
Take Care Medical Health, a subsidiary of Walgreens, provides the medical services at DR Walk-In clinics, and Walgreens operates convenient care clinics at over 400 Walgreen locations in the United States.
