Walk-in/urgent care medical facilities in SoWal?
We are renting a house in Seacrest Beach for 6 weeks starting early September. Not that we really plan to have to use one, but we are wondering where there might be a walk-in or urgent care medical center in the area. Some Walgreens and supermarkets in our area (Tucson) have small clinics and there are a number of Urgent Care centers here. We always like to plan ahead, so any information will be greatly appreciated.

The Sacred Heart walk in clinic is actually 7 miles west of the hospital on the Okaloosa/Walton line.
Experience tells me you will drastically decrease the odds you will need to patronize a walk in clinc if you keep you and your kids ears DRY to fend off swimmer's ear

There's a great little place in Blue Mountain, on the north side of 30A where a nurse practitioner can handle many ailments. It's a $50 fee, cash, and well worth the money. I came down with a bad throat infection while on vacation...was in and out in 15 minutes with a Z-Pac prescription. My vacation was saved! No expensive fees, no waiting. I can't remember the name, but there's a sign out front. Maybe someone can jump in if they know the name.

I've taken my kids to Emerald Coast Urgent Care in Miramar beach several times too. They did stitches on my 3 y/o and did a nice job. Sometimes I think they're a little... err... not sure what to call it... maybe a little quick to think of the worst case scenario and apt to overkill on the treatment?? But, if you have insurance that you want to use, it's a nice place.CK

Dr. Bawa in Seagrove Beach/ Santa Rosa Beach
My family and I are patients of Dr. Bawa. He is a wonderful doctor and came highly recommended to us when we moved here. His clinic is behind Angelina's & their phone # is 850-534-4170. They accept most insurance plans and they take walk ins as well. Hope you enjoy your stay!

There's a walk-in just east of Old Fl FH, in a litle strip area. Hard to see, trees in front of it. Dentist office, Century 21, etc. Open from 9-5. Can't remember the name.
