Are the in store clinics trustworthy?

Like CVS... My son has had a low grade fever since Monday and we don't have insurance right now.

  • I went to one once when I was in college and the lady had no freaking idea what she was talking about. I almost died and had to go to the hospital because she used a little IPAD medical thing to diagnose me by asking a bunch of questions. This one was in a Mall.

  • I never heard of an in store clinic. I would just go tot a regular doctor or hospital just to be safe

  • No, I spent close to a 100 and the "doctor" couldn't even take my blood pressure and gave up after two tries and said "I'm just going to say it's fine." What if it wasn't fine!? I didn't have health insurance either so I went thinking it would be alright and I ended up having to go see a real doctor anyway because of how sick I ended up getting. Spent 98 at the in store clinic and another 20 on medication that they prescribe which did me no good.
