Emergency or walk-in—making the right decision
The Sanford Walk-in Clinics are not intended to be a substitute for an emergency room. In a true emergency, dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. The Sanford Walk-in Clinics are not intended to treat chronic conditions or serious medical conditions. See your personal doctor in those cases.
