A few months ago I returned from a trip to Disneyland and came home with a wonderful gift…pink eye! I’m sure after touching every hand rail in the park, I was bound to catch something. I used quite a bit of hand sanitizer but to no avail. And, of course when I woke up on a Saturday morning is when the symptoms began. My only option was urgent care or a clinic at a drugstore. Well, I went to a drugstore clinic and was really disappointed in the wait time and the lack of waiting room.
I wish I would have known about The Little Clinic. They have 10 locations throughout the Phoenix area. The Little Clinic is owned by Kroger so they want their customers to be healthy and happy. Here are some of my favorite features and conveniences of The Little Clinic:
- No Appointment is needed
- Most insurance plans are accepted
- Open 7 days a week
- You pay a PCP copay and not and urgent care copay
- There is a patient care tech to help sign you in
- Large waiting room (my past drugstore clinic experience, I was crammed next to the greeting cards!)
The Little Clinic even does sports physicals! You can print a $5 off coupon HERE that is valid for any sports physical from July 8-22, 2012!

I would try a Little Clinic, especially on a weekend with a child. Nice that they don’t urgent care fees too!
I think it’s very convenient.

I’ve taken my daughter to The Little Clinic for pink eye. They were so wonderful! I checked her in on a touch screen computer and had a very short wait. The doctor was incredibly helpful and so sweet! Would definitely go back.
My husband recently used a clinic inside a CVS and really liked it so I think I am more open to using one in a grocery store.
I would try it, especially considering that they are open on the weekends.
I think it’s a great idea, and I love that it’s a PCP copay.
I think it’s a great idea, very convenient to visit a medical professional at a short notice while grocery shopping and picking up the prescription at the same time!
Seems like a good idea to me! I like the convenience of having a clinic at the grocery store. That way, you can pick up meds, food, and other supplies at the same time!
I just checked and it doesn’t look like there are any Little Clinics in Tucson, but we do have Fry’s stores (and we would use that gift card lickety-split). 😉
I would love one in the store. I’m there every week so it wouldn’t be out of the way to go. A great idea.

Great to know that we are only paying PCP copays here…Thanks for the info! Love the idea of it being inside Fry’s.
I would try it. Weekends are always when the kids get sick. kristin

Sounds very convenient, and if there are shorter waiting lines, that would be awesome!
