Take Care Health Clinic at Norwood Walgreens

Recently, one of our commenters posted a glowing review of the clinic now operating at Walgreens on Montgomery Rd. (see this July 17 blog). Wanting to know more, one of us picked up a brochure at the pharmacy yesterday and found that Take Care Health Systems operates a growing number of these clinics at Walgreens stores throughout the U.S. In no way are recommending their clinic to our readers, but we thought it would be worthwhile to at least draw attention to:

1. The cost and payment for being seen by a nurse practitioner: $59 to $74 unless your insurance company can be billed. Check this list to see if your insurer is included.

2. Treatments and services: respiratory illnesses, skin conditions, minor injuries, vaccinations, physicals, diagnostic testing

3. The clinic hours: Mon-Fri 8:00 am-7:30 pm; Sat-Sun 9:30 am-5:00 pm

4. The toll free number for Patient Support : 1-866-825-3227, seven days a week. The Patient Support Center is open 8:00 am to 9:00 pm EST, Monday through Friday; 9:00 am to 6:00 pm EST on Saturday; and 10:00 am to 6:30 pm EST on Sunday.
