SHOP: Walgreens Healthcare Clinic and the saga to fix my ankle...

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.


So, do y'all remember right before I moved to New Orleans I sprained my ankle when I was running some errands. Well I'm a whole four days into Law School and I'm already crafting a negligence suit against said store... I can see it in the law books decades from now. Law Student slipped on lettuce in the grocery store, sues for punitive damages and wins a million dollars. Totally right? Anyways, I digress. It's been a few weeks now and my ankle still isn't 100%, so I decided to head over to the Walgreen's clinic to get one of their providers to take a look.


The Walgreen's healthcare clinic is awesome! So easy, so fast (which is key for all of us these days), and did I mention it was inexpensive. I was in and out for $25 plus they gave me some free bandages for my foot!

All you have to do is walk in during normal clinic hours, and use the handy kiosk to schedule your appointment! You can see them for general wellness, illness prevention or even minor injuries like mine. 


Then you wait either in the little seating area or you could go shopping and the page you! I'll give you one guess as to which one I chose. 


I was in and out of the clinic in 10 minutes with my recommend course of treatment (rest, ice, compression and elevation or RICE if you're curious)



You can pay with any major credit card which is nice... and did I mention you can peruse the beauty aisle on your way out? Love it. 


The Walgreens Healthcare Clinic is awesome for a busy student like me. They respected my time and are open longer hours which is way more convenient. I don't have a primary care physician, but get what? You don't need one. Which is even better because I'm new to the area and haven't had a chance to set up regular doctors appointments. I'll most definitely be dropping by again for a flu shot, or even a minor cough or cold. Flu season is not that far away, so we all need to take care of ourselves now, and with a Walgreen's in every neighborhood you really have no excuse anymore.

Ohh, I didn't know Walgreen's had a clinic. We got to the CVS Clinic a lot. Super easy!

Holy monkeys! Lettuce? That's no bueno! I'm glad you're OK! And even more glad that you had such a great experience at Walgreens Healthcare Clinic!
