PM Pediatric Urgent Care, Tarzana CA - 18555 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana
The care was amazing from the guy who checked us in to Dr. Al, but the X-ray tech today telling my 5 year old to lie down and not move “or he will hold her head down” didn’t work for me. Being in the medical field, I can tell you that’s never ok. Especially with pediatrics who are already terrified. He was rude, unprofessional and must have forgotten he was dealing with a CHILD. I would give him a 1/5 and everyone else a 5/5.

David the NP has great beside manner. My dad generally is a very quiet guy and normally won’t talk to providers out of shyness. This was the first time I had seen him feel comfortable enough to share his symptoms with a provider.

Everyone was very helpful. I booked the appointment the night before for 9 o’clock when they open. I got right in and Dr. Emanuel came in. He was very thorough and answered all my questions and prescribe medication for me. I have been to urgent care a few times before and everyone is always so wonderful. I would recommend urgent care. I have insurance that covers everything. That was not a worry for me! I had booked my appointment the night before online.

Recent Walk-in Clinic Reviews (20)

First time being there, didn’t know they provided both tests rapid and pcr. Not sure if they do accept walk in but I think I would go there to make an appt or try to do walk-in if the wait times would be quicker. However, the people were helpful and nice.

- Verified patient on 12/24

I was a walk in. Gianni was great and nurse JAY WAS VERY NICE AND INFORMATIVE. WILL BE BACK

- Verified patient on 8/12

I was a walk in and everyone was professional and friendly and was happy to help as they were t busy ! It was great !

- Verified patient on 11/12

Came here for a rapid COVID test. I had an appointment at 8:20 and was seen at 8:25. The only negative was that it seemed a bit disorganized between people who had an appointment and walk-ins. Everyone kind of just asked around to see what time people’s appointments were and organized accordingly. Otherwise this was a super simple process.

- Verified patient on 12/28

I was a walk in, got to see PA in a reasonable timeframe, level of treatment was excellent, PA, diagnosed pneumonia administered a breathing TX and prescribed approx medication, email to my pharmacy very pleased with overall experience

- Verified patient on 5/18

I walk in with excruciating pain in right knee. After a wait time was taken to a space with a curtain. The assistant took my vitals. The Med students arrived to do pre exam. They were professional and pleasant. Unlike countless unpleasant doctors. Dr Bassi was cheerful, kind, and gentle. Everything you would want in a doctor. He made me feel at ease right away which calmed my fears. After the steroid injection I left still in pain. I struggled to my car still in pain. I remember thinking, l wish someone would have offered to help me back to my car It then would have been a perfect experience. The front desk witnessed my struggle to walk but insisted I walk to them to be given the post visit instructions. Perhaps I should have ask them to bring it to me. Empathy is practiced differently by healthcare workers.

We took my son, and it was a very nice experience, thanks. I just walk in, didn't make an appointment. Yes I will recommended. Waiting time was pretty good Yes it was

- Verified patient on 9/16

This is my favorite place to get care! The staff are kind and knowledgeable and the exam rooms are clean. However, the wait times since COVID have been a nightmare. They switched to all walk-ins now having to schedule an appointment time. They run out of slots so quickly that when I booked through solv somewhere between 3-5am, the earliest available appointment time was already 4pm! Also the ladies at the front desk used to be very nice but they are very rude now idk if they are overwhelmed or what but they aren’t as kind as they were pre COVID lol and that stinks when you already don’t feel good. The bathroom at the front was super dirty during our visit. Also, there should be more than just 1 bathroom out front. The water fountain is blocked off and they are charging $2.75 for literally the cheapest bottle water in existence! It isn’t even Aquafina or Dasani. This place has been a nightmare ever since COVID. We spent 3 hours there and 2 of those hours were spent waiting for care even though we scheduled online and we were on time, they were behind so we had to wait.

Same say walk in COVID test on 8-10 @ 6:00 pm was lovely. Though the sign said no walk ins accepted, the receptionist welcomed me with a smile and warm mood as she took my information with the registration form. The two nurses who tested me were awesome. Kind, quick, and kept me felt cared for since they recommended me to check for strep throat with my symptoms after my friend recently also got strep throat. Great service and would recommend anyone to attend.

I was there for an covid test first of all. I arrived at 4 as a waitlist walk in, with was ok. I want on when I saw 4 ppl and one family go ahead of me when they arrived after me. The staff kept pulling names to pull to the back and one of them literally picked up my card, looked at it, put it back in the pile and grab another persons card in front of my face. At this time it has been an HR since I arrived. I asked a staff member how do the figure who comes back first? She said, “well normally we take care of the visions with appointments first then side walk ins between.” So I told her, indigo needs a better system because it was really rude what happened in front of my face and to me. You need to get TWO baskets that are labeled “appointments” “walk-ins”, so the customer doesn’t feel neglected or rejected waiting their turn. If you do that then the client be less stressed. Please get a new system

All in all it was a good experience. The hour and a haf wait time was kinda annoying I would hate to think how long I would have had to wait if there had been walk ins. But I would recommend Solv Helth care facilities and will be using them for any future needs. I felt that the Doctor that was assigned to me was very professional at the same time very friendly. I even had my covid results before I left the parking lot, that was fast.

- Verified patient on 12/25

Quick and thorough! So glad I reached out when the walk in was not an option.

- Verified patient on 4/13

Your Solv App messed up big time. I went on the system early Sunday evening for an appointment for Monday at *** am. That's what appointment time I chose because it was one of 2 appointments left. I show up at *** and when I check in the lady says nothing to me about checking me in as a Walk In? An hour and a half later I walk up and ask what's going on, I had an appointment at *** and she says oh I checked you in as a walk in. No I have an appointment at ***. She then ask if I received a text for the appointment? I looked and nothing was sent to me. As I'm waiting for over an hour and a half now, another lady walked in and said she has an appointment and she said she did it with her phone and the lady says we don't show an appointment for you. She was going to get checked in as a walk in also but when she found out people have been waiting for an hour and a half already she declined and left. Your Solv App Sucks!

- Verified patient on 9/20

Me and my 3 kids was an walk in I got there at 12:45 walked out at 2:45 so it wasn’t that bad

- Verified patient on 8/7

Not one concern besides wait time, but that is expected due to being a walk-in and the times we are in

- Verified patient on 3/10

Everyone was very friendly and kind. Wait was no problem especially since I made an appointment online and was able to fill out all paperwork and even payment information while at home so that it processed automatically once my appointment was done. Great experience. Would highly recommend people making an appointment and filling out information beforehand because a lot of people do walk ins.

- Verified patient on 8/11

Friendly and attentive front desk staff . Check in was easy and I was a walk in patient. Co pay cost was fair .. I brought both my kids to be seen . Nurse and doctor were professional, kind and efficient. I would return again and I would recommend AME because process is easy and med service is good .

Walk-in Clinics in Los Angeles

Nowadays, convenience reigns supreme. In a world when "next day shipping" is being surpassed by "same day shipping," who wants to wait weeks for an appointment with their primary care physician? There are several types of walk-in clinics, including urgent care, pediatric urgent care, retail clinics, and others. These convenient care sites offer qualified providers who can diagnose and treat a variety of minor injuries and illnesses on the same day. If you've ever wondered, "Where can I find a walk-in clinic in Los Angeles?" you've come to the right place.

When you need medical help right away, the last thing you want to do is travel to a neighboring clinic just to find out it is closed. It was such a waste of time. Instead, look for a walk-in clinic that is currently accepting patients. It's sometimes more important that the location is "open now" than how close it is or if it has good patient feedback. It's conceivable that all you want is a quick diagnosis and treatment so you can get back to your normal routine. Based on your area, Solv has compiled a list of walk-in clinics that are now operating. The most relevant, closest, and highest rated results are automatically shown first for your convenience.

Walk-in Clinic Guide

In a recent survey conducted with the Urgent Care Association, Solv found that patients were waiting an average of 24 days for appointments with their primary care provider. In a world of instant gratification, consumers demand more. They demand now. If you want to watch a movie, you download it in minutes or stream it instantly. If you need groceries, you can pick up your phone and have them delivered to you within the hour. If you need restaurant reservations, you find one with availability, book online, walk in minutes later and sit right down. Healthcare shouldn’t be any different.

That’s why walk-in clinics have been growing at a faster pace than any other healthcare service in the United States. And it is why healthcare consumers search for “urgent care” more than 5x more than “primary care” or “family doctor,” combined. These consumers are highly actionable, searching with high intent terms like “walk-in clinic near me.” They want same day access to quality healthcare providers when they are sick or injured - after hours, one weekends and on holidays - without the cost and inconvenience of the emergency room.

Walk-in clinics typically treat minor illnesses like the flu, sinus infections and strep throat, as well as minor injuries like cuts, scrapes and burns, making these clinics ideal for diagnosing and treating non-emergent healthcare needs. Urgent care centers, which are one type of walk-in clinic that usually have medical doctors and x-ray equipment on-site, expand even further on these services. And at a growing rate walk-in clinics are offering preventative care services including annual physicals and well visits, flu shots and other immunizations and vaccines, taking on the role of primary care provider for the tens of millions of consumers that don’t have one.

Walk-in Clinic Services & Pricing

Walk-in clinics, which include urgent care, retail clinics and others, are a convenient resource for consumers needing treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. Services that you would normally receive at your primary care office are usually available at a walk-in clinic including annual and school physicals, flu shots and immunizations, treatment for illnesses including colds, flu stomach pains, sinus and ear infections and more. Depending on the type of clinic you visit, you could also be seen for injuries such as burns, bites, sprains and breaks. As for cost, without insurance, you should expect between $75-140 for your visit, plus the cost of any labs, tests or images.

Insurance & Payments

Nearly all walk-in clinics take commercial insurance and many (if not most) will take medicare. As such if you have insurance coverage, you can expect the financial experience to be similar to visiting a specialist where you have a co-pay, usually $25-50, due at the time of the visit. Any additional lab work, x-rays or other tests performed will be billed against your insurance first and any supplemental balance due will be invoiced to you after the fact. Without insurance, you’ll pay a visit fee between $75-140 at the time of your visit. This is typically 25-50% more than your primary care provider, but usually the convenience is well worth the additional cost. If you are interested in a telehealth or video visit, your cost could be as much as 50% less than an urgent care, you could be diagnosed and prescribed medication and you’ll never have to leave your home.

    Walk-in Clinic Hours & Wait Times

    Every walk-in clinic - even those part of the same group or brand - may have different hours. While they are meant to be conveniently accessible during times when your primary care provider is not, that’s subjective and highly variable. A traditional formula, however, is that most walk-in clinics are open 6 to 7 days a week usually between the hours of 8 am to 8 pm. That could shift to nearly any 8-12 hour period between 7 am and 10 pm. You’ll even find some clinics open 24 hours a day, similar to an emergency room. As for wait time, most patients report waiting between 15-45 minutes on average, but that can certainly vary, as well. It’s usually best to find a walk-in clinic near you to either confirm the hours online, or call the clinic directly to verify. Or, you can book a same day doctor appointment online with Solv.

    Walk-in Clinic FAQs

    • How much does a walk-in clinic cost in Los Angeles?

      There are no real industry standards, so not all walk-in clinics are the same in terms of services or pricing. Even though the clinics will charge different prices, depending on location, the base prices range between $75 and $125. That is for the normal services and not specialized ones. You should expect to incur additional costs if you require a special service or medication such as a lab test, an X-ray, or an immunization shot. These may range between $50 and $150, again depending on location. Of course, these costs apply only when you are paying in cash as opposed to using your insurance policy. If you are walking in with insurance, on the other hand, you can expect to co-pay around $20-$50, depending on location, your plan and whether you are in network with the provider.

    • Is insurance accepted at walk-in clinics in Los Angeles?

      Each insurer determines if their plans cover walk-in clinics or not. Your insurer may not cover that, which is the reason why you should always call ahead and be sure before walking in for treatment with your insurance plan. Most plans cover that though so it is highly likely that your nearest walk-in clinic will say yes when you call to find out if they accept insurance plans.

    • Is a walk-in clinic a substitute for a primary care physician?

      While walk-in clinics treat most minor injuries and illnesses, it is generally not a good idea to substitute them for a primary care physician. These facilities exist to supplement, not replace, primary care providers which may be closed in the evenings or on weekends and holidays. Using a walk-in clinic as your primary care provider may limit your access to healthcare due to the lower capacity of these facilities compared to a regular medical facility. Additionally, you may have trouble seeing the same provider visit to visit, so they may have very little awareness of your medical needs on an on-going basis.

    • What’s the difference between an urgent care and walk-in clinic?

      Walk-in clinic, urgent care center, convenient care clinic, immediate care clinic, and retail clinic are terms that are (too) often used interchangeably, creating confusion amongst patients. In essence, any healthcare facility that lets patients walk-in to get treatment without an advance appointment could be considered a walk-in clinic.

      An urgent care center, on the other hand, is a subtype of the walk-in clinic model that generally provides expanded services and extended hours. Retail clinics, which are another type of walk-in clinic, offer fewer services compared to the former. In addition, they are located inside of retail outlets or pharmacies, typically staffed by a nurse practitioner and generally cheaper than walk-in clinics.

    • What is a walk-in clinic?

      Walk-ins is a term used to describe a wide variety of clinics that accept patients without prior appointments. Different types of walk-ins include retail, urgent care, occupational medicine, and primary care clinics that offer walk-in hours. Even though it is difficult to calculate the exact number of walk-in clinics that exist in the United States given the variable and vaguely-defined nature of the category, 15,000 facilities are estimated to be around. While the majority of the facilities are government, charity or foundation, offering free services, many are private, providing extremely affordable rates.
