Before Your Visit

Before your very first visit to Physicians East, we ask that you complete and review the following forms. This will expedite your check-in process and reduce your wait time.

What You Can Expect

Because we are a walk-in clinic and aim to provide comprehensive care to every patient, wait times can vary.  We will do our best to serve you as quick as possible.  You can call ahead to check on approximate wait times before your visit.

Depending on the nature of your visit, our medical provider may recommend blood tests or x-rays.  Many lab tests are available right away, but some will take a few days to process.  X-rays are reviewed immediately by the providers for rapid diagnosis.  Final reports which are read by our radiologists or specialists, take a few days to process.

We pride ourselves in providing timely tests results both in-person and through after-visit phone calls from our nursing staff.  You will know “what we found out.”

After Your Visit

The provider may recommend follow-up visits. These can be performed at the Urgent Care Center or at your primary care provider's office. You can discuss your preference with the provider during your visit.
