We received roughly four inches of snow over the weekend, which is fairly big news for this part of Kentucky.  It was the good kind of snow, too.  The snow was sticky enough to make into a snowman and was accompanied by weather warm enough you wanted to stay out and play.  Bubbles was thrilled with the opportunity to get out and play.

Saving Time with Walgreens' Healthcare Clinic Louisville Locations #HealthcareClinic #shop

She’s been cooped up for awhile now.  Actually, our house in general has been mostly on lockdown while everyone passed a stomach bug and colds back and forth.  I’ve only been hit with the cold part, which is fortunate because someone has to be able to keep everyone hydrated, clothes washed, and chicken noodle soup served up.

Walgreens Healthcare Clinics

I’ve always been thankful for Walgreens’ Healthcare Clinic Louisville locations, but even more so during the past couple of weeks.  Our local Walgreens is about a mile away – a quick drive, even on the day we had an ice storm and I couldn’t go more than 35 MPH on the way there.   Having one so handy has been a way for me to save time and keep costs low while getting everyone well again.

Bubbles was showing signs of a cold so I called our pediatrician to make an appointment for the next day, only to be told you can’t schedule “sick” appointments and need to call the day of.  (Is that normal?  I had never heard of such a thing before.)  It irritated me a little, because after we moved we are even further from their office, and I like to try and schedule our trips in that direction around school traffic, errands, the weather, etc.

The next day, Bubbles was sick to her stomach, which surprised and worried me.  Of course, the weather was in the single digits and the thought of trying to bundle up my poor baby and drive all the way to the pediatrician in the freezing cold didn’t sound like a good plan.  Then I remembered that the Walgreens’ Healthcare Clinic Louisville locations offered cold, cough, and flu treatment for anyone over the age of 18 months and they happily take walk-ins 7 days a week!

Find a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Louisville Location and Check Wait Times Online #HealthcareClinic #shop

Even though I knew I could just drop in, I always pop by the #HealthcareClinic website before I head out.  You can look up all the locations with an attached clinic, and even check the wait times right online.  I love that Walgreens values my time as a customer and a Mom and makes things as easy for me as possible.

Fortunately, I didn’t end up needing to take Bubbles in to see one of the Healthcare Professionals.  I did, however, need to make a run in to Walgreens pick up some additional toddler pain reliever.  When I did I found out that with purchase of my usual brand, I would get 5,000 Walgreens Balance Rewards Points.  I went ahead and picked up two and scored 10,000 points to use later.

Reasons Why This Multitasking Mom Uses the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Louisville Locations #HealthcareClinic #shop

When I’m trying to accomplish thirty things at once – like I know we all do on a daily basis – utilizing the Healthcare Clinic inside of a neighborhood Walgreens just makes sense.  Not only do I save time by getting checked out, then filling my script while I wait, I can also pick up our milk and tissues, too.  And because the clinics accept most insurance plans, I’m going to save money, too.

When would you use a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic?

  1. We love the Walgreens clinic! It saves me a lot of time to talk to a trained professional!

  2. A new Walgreens opened up close by recently. Haven’t had the need to try the clinic (knock on wood), but its good to know it is there when we need it!

  3. I’m Canadian but, my daughter got sick when we were in Florida and they were very helpful at the clinic/pharmacy. :)

  4. I just learned about their clinics and I think this is so awesome. Easy to use, affordable, and I’m with you… less waiting. Thanks for sharing the info.

  5. I love Walgreens and this service sounds like a life saver. Thanks for the info.

  6. I recently discovered the Walgreens Health Care Clinic in our neighborhood and I keep telling everyone about it.. this is the best thing since sliced bread.. hope we will never need it again, but GOOD to know it is there when we need it… great post.

  7. I love that they are open 7 days a week. And what a major convenience that the pharmacy is on site. I always hate having to go across town to get prescriptions after going to the doctor’s office — we’re usually ready to just go home. Walgreens is great!

  8. I love this, as a busy mom of 5 i would so use this!

  9. I love the Walgreens clinics for after regular doctor’s hours when a kid is sick but it’s not serious enough to go to the ER, but too serious to wait til morning. The Walgreens clinics are so handy then!

  10. I love that they have this! So much quicker than other options!!

  11. weekends. holidays. our copays are quadruple after 5pm. :(

  12. I wish our local Walgreens had a clinic in it. It would seriously be so helpful! I can count quite a number of times I could have used it and saved us money.

  13. I’d use it for the very reason you needed one. That’s ridiculous that you can’t schedule a sick visit at your doctor!

  14. I could use their clinic right now, because I have 2 sick kids.

  15. I love that you can check the wait time online. It is so nice that you dont have to wonder how long the wait will be.

  16. This is fantastic. I love that it is open on weekends.

  17. I love Walgreens! I haven’t had to use the healthcare clinic yet either, fortunately, but it’s nice to know it’s there if I ever do. I love the convenience of it! I have a heck of a time trying to get in to see doctors around here.

  18. this is a great money saver, a way to save and get great medical care.

  19. Definitely when I don’t have a Doctor’s appointment or the clinic is closed.

  20. MY mom lives just across the bridge from you in Indiana. She uses the local Walgreens clinics quite often.

  21. My regular family doctor the lines always take at least ONE full hour in the waiting room. It is absolutely horrible!!

  22. We don’t have Walgreens here but it sounds like a good way to get some health care.

  23. I hate the way doctors make you wait SO long for an appointment and if you REALLY need them, they’re usually booked or don’t take walk in appointments. This sounds like a really convenient option for you guys :)

  24. I’ve been suffering from a sore scratchy throat for the last week. I think it’s time to stop in at the Walgreens and get checked out!

  25. I’m in love with the Healthcare Clinics but that you can see wait times makes me love it even more! Now I know which direction to turn leaving my house! #client
