I needed to be seen by a doctor and had planned on visiting MedCheck Speedway since it is quite close to where I live.
I called ahead just to see how busy they were and was transferred to a nurse.
The nurse told me they do not do blood draws nor x-rays here and that if they were ordered, I would be referred to my primary care doctor, which I do not have.
I thought that one reason these types of clinics exist is so that people who do not have a regular doctor can be seen right away.
The nurse was also not very understanding nor accommodating about my condition and limitations that I expressed.
She made a point to say that if an emergency were to come in, they would go ahead of me.
She made no attempt to ease my mind about a long wait whilst feeling so terribly ill.
I ended up calling the Medcheck in Carmel, as recommended by a family member.
The Carmel location does indeed draw blood and offers x-rays when ordered by a doctor.
They were baffled as to why this Medcheck in Speedway had told me they do not.
I had a feeling I was going to need both blood and x-rays taken, which I did end up needing, so I am glad I did not waste my time nor put myself through any unnecessary stress by going any further than the phone call with the Medcheck in Speedway.
I was quite happy with my experience in Carmel. This location should take some lessons from them.
09-13 Editing to add that the Carmel location ended up being a complete waste of time as well.
Why do any of these MedChecks exist if only a Primary Care Physician can help you in the end? Don’t bother with either location.
