Walk-In Medical Clinics in Delhi


Frequently asked questions about Walk-In Medical Clinics

If you’re searching for medical care, you might be wondering “what is a walk-in clinic?” These are offices where you can see medical professionals without an appointment, whether or not you have a family doctor. Anyone who has a health card can see a doctor at a medical walk-in clinic. If you don’t have a health card, you can still see a doctor, but you’ll be required to pay a fee at a walk in clinic.

It can be difficult to know which walk-in clinics are open for in-person appointments. When someone searches for a“walk in clinic near me”, medimap.ca shows the walk in clinic wait time and the way in which a clinic is seeing patients; in-person, phone or virtual.

Medical walk-in clinics can add you to a daily waitlist to see a walk-in clinic doctor as soon as you show up in-person or call. Many clinics listed on medimap.ca offer online check-in so patients can simply submit a check-in request to add their name to the waitlist without physically visiting the clinic or calling ahead.

However, if you’d prefer to schedule an appointment for a future date/time rather than be put on the waitlist for the day, you can contact a clinic directly to book an in-person or virtual visit.

The following is not generally covered at a walk in clinic. Fees will apply if not covered by other health insurance plans (i.e. a work health insurance plan):

  • Doctor’s sick notes
  • Prescription medication
  • Some additional recommended treatments, like physiotherapy or chiropractic clinic appointments (some provinces cover some services)
  • Any tests or medical services not deemed medically necessary

Remember to bring your health card to the walk-in clinic to ensure your services are covered. Those without a health card can see a doctor but will be required to pay a fee. According to the Wellesley Institute, the average cost of a walk in clinic appointment in Toronto without Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) is $60.

In some cases, a walk-in doctor may suggest another diagnostic test, such as an ultrasound. In these cases, they’ll refer you to an appropriate centre or hospital nearby. As long as the tests are deemed medically necessary, they’re covered under your provincial health plan.

In some cases, a medical walk-in clinic near you may close earlier than its stated hours of operation. This is because some provinces set a maximum capacity for how many patients a clinic can see each day. Since the office can’t bill the government past a set limit, they shut down for the day.

To avoid being turned away, check walk-in clinic wait times on medimap.ca to see which clinics have already reached capacity and which are still open.

Traditionally, walk-in clinics were only offered in-person. The reason they’re called “walk-ins” is that you need to go to a physical location, join a waitlist, and wait your turn to see a doctor. Originally, provincial governments didn’t pay providers who offered virtual services, meaning there was less incentive for virtual walk-in clinics.

However, during COVID-19, virtual services became the norm. Today, every provincial government pays doctors to offer virtual services. As such, you can now easily book a walk-in clinic appointment that takes place over the phone or video chat.

Although in-person appointments are necessary sometimes, many concerns can be addressed virtually. Phone and video chats allow your doctor to verbally assess you or answer your questions. In some cases, a doctor may ask you to send a photo or show you the affected area on video.

Some virtual clinics work with doctors all over Canada. To speak with a local doctor, use the filters to find walk-in clinics nearby that offer in-person, phone, or video visits. Alternatively, you can also speak to the next available doctor via video call by selecting Virtual Care from the medimap.ca homepage.

A family doctor is your primary care provider for continuous care. This is the person you would make an appointment with if you have a new non-emergency health concern. If you don’t have a family doctor, you’ll need to find a family practice accepting patients. Each province has specific ways in which residents should find a family doctor.

To find a family doctor in your area, please visit medimap.ca and enter your postal code or city, and search for “walk-in clinics”.

Then on the search results page, click the link near the left of the screen which says “Are you looking for a family doctor? Click here to find one”. This will generate a list of clinics that have family doctors accepting new patients. You can give them a call to schedule a consultation.

Alternatively, each province has a resource to help people find a family doctor.
