Canton CVS Opens Walk-In Health Clinic at Canton Center and Cherry Hill
Pharmacy on Cherry Hill and Canton Center roads offers basic services at walk-in medical clinic.
While illnesses, bumps and bruises are difficult to predict, a new service at CVS Pharmacy at Cherry Hill and Canton Center roads in Canton aims to make treating these afflictions quicker and easier.
MinuteClinic opened its seventh Wayne County clinic Jan. 16 at the CVS location, offering walk-in examinations for minor illnesses, injuries and skin conditions, as well as a variety of health screenings and vaccines without the need for making an appointment.
The CVS on 5 Mile and Sheldon roads in Northville also offers MinuteClinic services.
May Hang, CVS' state practice manager for Michigan, said the new service works as a supplement to one's primary care physician, offering basic services and the abiilty to write prescriptions any day of the week on a walk-in basis.
"We're like the first floor on an elevator," Hang said, performing initial tests and diagnosing minor afflictions or conditions while urgent care centers and primary physicians can conduct more in-depth tests.
Additionally, Hang said, the clinic offers wellness screenings, where patients can receive tips for lifestyle changes to ensure optimal health.
The clinic accepts most insurance providers and offers low-cost services for those without insurance. The cost for most treatments begins at $79.
Anna White, a family nurse practitioner at the clinic, said the clinic will write prescriptions for the pharmacy of the patient's choosing, including CVS' own pharmacy just steps from the clinic inside the store.
Patients looking to utilize the clinic can simply walk into the CVS location and spot the MinuteClinic kiosk, where they can fill out their information electronically and wait to be seen, Hang said.
