Take Care Clinics Now Offering Nebulizer Treatments
Posted Aug 27 2009 11:36pm
Walgreens’ Take Care Health clinics have added nebulizer treatments to the list of services they provide.
The clinics, which are run out of Wallgreens, currently offer a lot of routine services at a very reasonable price, including treatment for minor injuries or illnesses, adult vaccinations, physical exams, and a range of diagnostic tests including those for pregnancy, tuberculosis, and flu. You can even get a skin tag or a wart removed there. All their services and some of the prices are listed here.
The company says it has added nebulizer treatments in direct response to feedback and because respiratory diseases are so common.
Take Care’s staff already treat patients with bronchitis, asthma exacerbations or other respiratory illnesses. “Offering nebulizer treatments at Take Care Clinics across the country provides our nationally certified clinicians another tool to ensure individuals and families can receive clinically appropriate care where and when it’s needed,” said Sandra Ryan, RN, MSN, CPNP, FAANP and chief nurse practitioner officer for Take Care Health Systems.
These clinics are a Godsend during such hard economic times. If you’re paying your own health care bills, it’s hard to imagine where else you could get a physical exam for $60.
And, as I noted in an earlier post, Take Care clinics are also offering free health care to some jobless people. You can find out if you qualify for the program at www.takecarehealth.com, or by calling l 1-866-Take-Care (1-866-825-3227).
