Same Day Clinic

Same Day Clinic available for urgent needs

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.

When you know you need to receive medical care right away and it is not a serious emergency, Riverwood’s Same Day Clinic inside our Aitkin Clinic is another option of care. Riverwood emphasizes seeking care with your primary care provider or care team first. However, the Same Day Clinic is a trusted option when access may be a barrier to address your timely concerns. You can be seen by a nurse practitioner or physician assistant for non-emergency illnesses, injuries or urgent needs with the following options.

  1. Walk in for a face-to-face visit.
  2. Call ahead for same day appointment availability. Scheduled appointment times vary and are available face-to-face or  virtual care video visit.
