Though they offer similar services, you can save 40% at MinuteClinic when compared to urgent care in Hamden. At MinuteClinic®, you can check the wait times at various clinics online prior to coming in to avoid the long lines that are common at urgent Care. The largest distinction, besides the cost and wait time, is that an urgent care has equipment to perform on-site lab tests and x-rays. If needed, your Hamden MinuteClinic health professional can refer you elsewhere for an x-ray.

When Should I Go to Urgent Care or Walk-In Clinic in Hamden, CT?

Urgent Cares and walk-in clinics are ideal for when you become sick or injured when your regular doctor is not available for a last-minute appointment. If you have a condition that you would normally see your doctor for, going to a walk-in over an emergency room is appropriate. While we treat sicknesses and injuries, our nurse practitioners and physician assistants are also able to administer a variety of vaccines if needed for work, school or personal reasons such as travel. You should go to an emergency room if you have more complex or critical needs that may require advanced treatments, including cases where surgery may be necessary. An example of some symptoms best evaluated at a hospital emergency room include chest pain, broken bones, or head injuries. Our Hamden walk-in clinic is ideal for treating minor illnesses , like ear aches and ear infections, however, in the event of a severe injury, please call 911 immediately.

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
