Come visit our clinic at 2045 Dixwell Avenue near Hamden High School and Lake Whitney.

Respecting patients and providing upstanding service

Too many people have become disillusioned with medical care. For example, they must wait seemingly forever to get seen and fork over an arm and a leg for the privilege. They have no idea going in how much their treatment may cost and if their insurance might accept it.

These issues aren’t as much of a concern at our MinuteClinic®. We welcome walk-in patients seven days a week, meaning that you could be seen within minutes after noticing a weird rash or realizing that you burned yourself a bit while cooking. Look over the approximate wait time online to see how long you might need to wait. You can even check our price list online before coming in to see how much your treatment might cost. We welcome uninsured patients, and if you do have insurance, you can run a preliminary check online to see if we accept your plan (we accept most!).

It gets better. If you prefer to plan ahead instead of walk in, you can frequently schedule same-day and different-day visits via the clinic website.

Other benefits of our clinic include:

  • Location inside CVS Pharmacy® for one-stop access to prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and other health care items
  • Online payment portal and mix of payment options—check, cash and credit card
  • Availability evenings and weekends
  • Option to have a visit summary sent to your regular doctor (with your permission) so everyone is on the same page
