Most parents have been there. A sick child means sleepless nights and miserable days away from work and school. So an unplanned trip to the doctor’s office becomes an inevitable need for most parents and people. Because of the load of patients seen at the base clinic, a day-of or next-day appointment can be hard to come by. So parents are usually faced with the option of either waiting it out for an appointment, or having their child seen at an urgent care facility. Both options require long waiting periods and more frustration. No one likes having sick kiddos.
But what if there were another option? What about a Walk-in Clinic? Triple C Clinic, located in the Main Medical Building in downtown Minot, may have the answer. Nurse Practitioner Sue Collins opened Triple C Clinic a few years ago because she wanted more flexibility and to be able to serve people who really needed it without the bureaucracy of a large hospital organization. Sue offers care for pediatric patients as well as adults and has the luxury to provide walk-in care for anyone. Because she has a small practice, she is able to see patients with almost no wait times. As a nurse practitioner she can prescribe medication and send out labs. She said,
Triple C Clinic accepts many insurances and, although they are a non-network provider for Tricare, they will take the insurance. Non-network means military members and families may have to pay a copay and possible labs and other fees after Tricare is billed, but it may be a small price to pay for the hours taken up waiting at an Urgent Care facility away from work. Plus, the personalized care and easy access facilities is an invaluable perk in itself.
Triple C Clinic is open M-Thurs 9am- 4:30 pm & Fridays 9am -12pm.
Just walk on in, see Sue and get on your way to feeling better at the Triple C Clinic in Downtown Minot.
