Parkview is committed to providing excellent care and part of providing excellent care is meeting patients right where they are in their health journey, in-person or virtually. When experiencing a minor illness or injury, seeing a medical professional at the start of symptoms means feeling better sooner. Virtual care gives patients increased access to quality healthcare, connecting patients to providers using an internet connection.

With Parkview MyChart’s Virtual Walk-in Clinic, users have round-the-clock access to a primary care provider. If you are hesitant to use virtual care options or prefer traditional in-person visits with a provider, here are three key reasons why you should consider Parkview’s Virtual Walk-in Clinic when you need same-day care.

Reason No. 1 – You can see a primary care provider when it is convenient for you – anytime, anywhere.

Can’t or don’t want to wait for an appointment at your doctor’s office? Don’t need the level of care an emergency room provides? Traveling anywhere in the U.S.? The Virtual Walk-in Clinic is available 24/7 including after-hours, weekends and holidays. A video visit not only saves time but also saves the hassle and expense of driving to a clinic. You can even schedule a same-day appointment for a time that works best for you.  All you need is your Parkview MyChart account and a smartphone, computer or tablet.


Read No. 2 – You can receive the same quality care as you would in person.

The Virtual Walk-in Clinic offers the same high-quality care you expect when visiting a traditional walk-in clinic. Receive same-day care for non-urgent health conditions including:

  • Cold
  • Cough
  • Flu
  • Pink eye
  • Sore throat
  • Sinus infection
  • Allergies
  • Skin irritation
  • And more.

Our Virtual Walk-in Clinic providers have access to your medical record and medication history and are equipped to treat and diagnose non-emergency medical issues. Prescriptions are even sent to your preferred pharmacy.

Reason No. 3 – You can avoid potential exposure risk.

Put yourself at ease by seeing a provider in the comfort of your own home, office or hotel room with a video visit, instead of sitting in a clinic lobby with other patients. This reduces your risk of exposure to germs and viruses.

The next time you are faced with a non-emergent medical issue and need same-day care, consider the convenience, quality and comfort available with a MyChart Virtual Walk-in Clinic video visit.
