Needed a rapid PCR ASAP. Plenty of appointments were available, booking was easy, and I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the facility was beautiful and clean, getting set up with the app was painless. Carbon Health definitely sets a new standard for urgent care in my book.

This was my first time at Prudent Medical and it was a fantastic experience. I had some ear and eye issues and they were prompt in checking me in and in seeing me. They were very friendly and didn’t make me feel bad for having something stuck in my ear. I would absolutely recommend this urgent care to others and would come back should I ever need it.

This was my first time at this care facility. When I arrived, I was greeted and made to feel comfortable. The wait time was just a few minutes. The Nurse who assisted me was very friendly. My wait time to see the doctor was less than three minutes. Of interest... I was not the only patient, however, I was made to feel as if I were. Very positive experience.

Walk-in Clinic FAQs

  • How much does a walk-in clinic cost in Seattle?

    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 Seattle?

    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 often used (too) 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.

  • Where can I find and book a walk in clinic appointment in Seattle?

    Solv allows visitors to book walk in clinic visits online with just a few taps. Same-day and next-day visit times are generally available, and you can search for real-time availability clinics.

Easy. Professional. So appreciated having a walk in testing option

- Verified patient on 3/15

No waiting at this walk-in place w/ my 6 yo granddaughter. The provider couldn't have been more calm and reassuring for her.

- Verified patient on 11/8

This was walk in but since I’m 92 and I can’t walk that far they came to the car. Very nice

- Verified patient on 9/21

I went for a Covid test as a walk in. There was no line and the staff were clear communicators and my test was processed rapidly. Thank you!

- Verified patient on 11/8

Easiest way to get tested. Little problem if you arrive by public transport or Uber as you need to walk in between cars to get to testing. But it was super quick and convenient.

- Verified patient on 12/30

So grateful to all of you that work here and take care of us. And thank you so much for providing walk in service. I could not find appointment times open online so I walked in. I knew it would be busy because of the holiday so I dressed warmly and showed up a half hour before the opening. there was a line of about 25 walk-in people ahead of me. I waited total an hour just because of volume of people walking in. So glad I went early. It was busy! But once it opened it was very efficient and quick and easy . Providers were kind and great. Bless you for doing what you do.

- Verified patient on 12/24

I saw the "Appointments Only" sign and drove past to check the schedule. Hoping I could be a "walk in". Earlier in the day I saw that there were no appointments listed for the next 2 days. But when i checked on line after driving past I got a notification there was an appointment in 10 minutes, which I took and got my test. Thank you.

Nice well planned event. Help offered every 15 feet up the hill. Staff asked if we had any question or needed paperwork. Once in the building the line spread out into the 20 groups at the sign in tables. I got extra help and signed in as a walk in to speed things up. Thanks again

- Verified patient on 1/23

I had an appt at 9:20 but there was a looong line. So that took 10 min to get processed. Would it be better to have one lane for appt and one for walk-ins? But please take a look at the layout of the results page. This whole story about the quality of the test????? I have to upload a picture of my test results!!! Instead of 1 pic I need 4 pics of Stuff that very few people care about. Put that stuff in a link! How can I put the important stuff on 1 pic to show at the airport in a foreign country? Needs name date tested date results and result and type of test. The test is filling. Please change that lay out

The walk-in appt only at UW was way better than the car line

- Verified patient on 11/16

I just found out this morn that I was exposed to a person who had tested positive and within hours in as able to get tested at a walk-in site. Thank your!

- Verified patient on 8/11

I love coming as a walk-in to get tested. This time with a scheduled appt and my son with no appointment. No wait at 9:45am on a Friday. Long line of cars, but we were in and out in 10 minutes. Thank you Covid testing staff at Aurora test site.

- Verified patient on 9/24

Very efficient walk in clinic in W Seattle ~ and results back in just 25 hours! Easy to access on~line info and follow up. Thank you!

- Verified patient on 10/26

Needed to get my 92 year old dad tested and they added him To schedule and came to car to test him since he couldn’t walk in Big relief!

- Verified patient on 9/21

Appreciate the kind staff with the increased walk in patients. They were very helpful and kept the line moving as quickly as possible.

- Verified patient on 12/24

The staff were very friendly and the environment was nice. It was great that it was walk-in, that's why I didn't have to make an appointment in advance.

- Verified patient on 3/18

This is a great place for care and I’m very impressed with the staff, their professionalism, knowledge, and kindness! My only complaint is that I was told that it was by appointment only when in fact they were accepting walk-ins. The wait was very long and I’m wondering if separate lines for appointments and walk-ins would’ve felt more efficient, honoring people who took the time to make an appointment while still accommodating everyone.

- Verified patient on 12/24

I was a walk-in and I was in and out in under 5 minutes. The facility was very clean and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable as well as very helpful.👍

- Verified patient on 11/9

My wife has been under the weather, made an appointment, and this facility allowed me to walk in and get checked too!

Walk-in Clinics in Seattle

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 Seattle?" 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.
