What is Immediate Care or Walk-In Care?

Urgent Care Ft Walton Beach, Destin immediate care, Navarre walk-in clinic, Niceville urgent careImmediate care and urgent care clinics are also referred to as Walk-in Clinics. Immediate Care, or walk-in care, provides health care services for illnesses and injuries needing urgent care and are often used when you are sick or injured and cannot get in to see your primary care doctor.

White-Wilson Immediate Care accepts walk-in appointments, or you may choose to call and schedule an appointment. We are open seven days a week in Fort Walton Beach; Monday through Saturday in Navarre and Niceville; and Monday through Friday in Destin.
Our Immediate Care Clinics are here to treat your urgent care needs.

White-Wilson's Immediate Care Clinics treat walk-in patients for a variety of urgent care needs. Similar to urgent care, immediate care clinics provide an alternative to going to the Emergency Room for minor injuries and illnesses.

Immediate care typically offers the same services as an urgent care. However, it is important to note that your insurance company may have different benefits for urgent care than immediate care.

Immediate care facilities, similar to urgent care clinics, specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of non life-threatening illnesses and injuries included but not limited to:

  • Urgent illness
  • Flu, cold, strep throat, Upper Respiratory conditions, etc.
  • Injuries such as sprains and strains, contusions and lacerations
  • Skin conditions
  • Motor vehicle and Workman's compensation accidents
  • New onset inexplicable pain and discomfort
  • Minor outpatient surgery for wounds, lesions or foreign body removal

Immediate care treatment is available for individuals of all ages; however, it is not intended to be used instead of the Emergency Room. For example, if you have a fever in excess of 104 degrees and the fever is accompanied by other serious symptoms like vomiting, dizziness, confusion, chills, etc., you should forgo immediate care or urgent care, and go directly to the Emergency Room. Ultimately, the purpose of immediate care services are to provide patients with robust, quality and urgent care, eliminating the time and expense associated with an Emergency Room visit.

Immediate care clinics are often confused with urgent care clinics since they both operate like a walk-in clinic. Although urgent care physicians and immediate care physicians can typically treat the same ailments, your health insurance benefits may vary. Unlike urgent care clinics, immediate care clinics charge similar to a standard doctor's office visit. Additional fees may be incurred for any lab, imaging or procedures needed at the point of service.
