Starting Saturday, Pella Medical Clinic is adding walk-in appointments.

They will receive those patients Mondays – Saturdays from 8 am – 7 pm and on Sundays from noon – 7 pm to better serve their needs. Some conditions that generally don’t call for an emergency visit, and can be handled in the Walk-In Clinic include:

· Upper respiratory problems
· Sore throat
· Ear infection
· Sinus infection
· Minor injuries
· Urinary tract infection
· Allergic reactions
· Minor rash or skin infection
· Minor burns
· Insect bites, minor animal or human bites
· Minor cuts, scrapes
· Fever
· Pink eye
· Flu symptoms
· Sprains

Patients are also able to reserve a spot for an appointment online. The system works similar to call-ahead seating at a restaurant, as they can choose an “approximate visit time” and hold their place in line. After an online reservation is made, the patient receives a reminder via text message to ensure they do not miss the appointment.
