About MinuteClinic - the US version of the Chinese barefoot village health worker ?

About MinuteClinic - the US version of the Chinese barefoot village health worker ?: "There’s really no secret behind MinuteClinic’s better approach to diagnosing and treating common illnesses:
* Quick (about 15-minute visits and no appointment needed).
* Affordable (treatments between $28 and $110, and reimbursed by most insurance plans).
* Convenient (open seven days a week, located near pharmacies)."
This is going to be serious competition for doctors ( family physicians). After all, most problems which cause a patient to visit a doctor are self-limited, and will fall into one of the categories MinuteClinic handles efficiently and inexpensively ! Is this the US version of the Chinese barefoot village health worker ?
