Walk-In Visit Q & A

When do I need a walk-in visit?

Ideally, you’d be able to schedule all of your exams and appointments to fit perfectly into your routine. But that’s not always possible. You might need a walk-in visit simply because you haven’t had the time to schedule your routine annual checkup. At other times, you may need to come in because you’re sick or injured. You might need a walk-in visit if you:

  • Have a high fever
  • Have a strain or sprain
  • Have pink eye
  • Are feeling sudden or ongoing pain
  • Are experiencing flu-like symptoms
  • Are showing signs of an ear infection or strep throat

At Basant Farghaly MD, Dr. Farghaly welcomes men, women, and children for walk-in and sick visits, so all members of your family can get the comprehensive medical care they need under one roof.

What happens during a walk-in visit?

Your walk-in visit is tailored to the issue or concern you’re currently having. In many cases, your walk-in visit can include:

  • Blood testing or urinalysis
  • Head-to-toe evaluation
  • X-ray or ultrasound imaging
  • Prescribing medication or changing the dosage of a current medication

If Dr. Farghaly is your primary care physician, it can help streamline your testing and treatment, since she already has access to your medical records.

How do I prepare for a walk-in visit?

If you’re sick or have an injury that doesn’t require a trip to the emergency room — such a broken bone or chest pain — you can certainly head right into Basant Farghaly MD for a walk-in visit during normal business hours. It’s helpful, if possible, to prepare for your medical exam by:

  • Making a list of your symptoms or concerns
  • Knowing your current medications, including over-the-counter varieties
  • Bringing in medical reports from other providers, like a recent emergency room visit

Dr. Farghaly will work to make sure your wait time is minimal. Her goal is to get you the care you need quickly so you can return home and recuperate.

If you need care right away, walk into Basant Farghaly MD or request a same-day visit online or over the phone.
