The Walk-In Health Clinic provides fast and focused health care throughout a broad spectrum of services. We offer quality and affordable health care daily, and even on most holidays. Most insurance providers are accepted. Our services are convenient for travelers and out of town visitors. The Walk-In Health clinic is also great for anyone without a local healthcare provider, or anyone who can’t wait for an appointment with their regular primary care.
*We do not have on-site x-ray. While this may seem to be an inconvenience, Mt. Baker imaging has multiple convenient locations nearby and can offer the highest quality service for our patients. We read the result online shortly after and work with their radiologists to coordinate care and referrals if needed. We find that this arrangement is the safest and offers the best outcome for our patients.
What we do best:
We are a preferred, in-network clinic for the following insurance carriers. Cash pay patients are welcome and we offer services at a discounted rate to pass on the reduced administrative costs. The cost of an office visit varies depending on the complexity of the visit and additional services recommended by the provider, such as labs and imaging. Please call if you'd like an estimate of typical costs.
**Payment in full is expected at the time of service for private pay patients.
