Glendale Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinics

Glendale, a burgeoning city in Los Angeles County, has an estimated population of about 200,000 residents. It’s is the third largest city in the county, but Glendale is home to just 4 urgent care centers.  Urgent care centers play an important role in the city, providing residents with health care for common illnesses and injuries that are not considered true emergencies. Some common reasons that people may visit urgent care or walk-in clinics include:

  • Ear pain
  • Painful urination
  • Sprains, shallow cuts, and other minor trauma
  • Persistent diarrhea
  • General cold and flu symptoms

Urgent Care GlendaleResidents of Glendale can also find another 6 urgent care centers and walk-in clinics the surrounding 20-mile radius. These are found in cities like Burbank and Montrose. However, reaching these other urgent care centers can be a hassle for many who don’t have a car or access to public transportation.

Thankfully, PlushCare offers an innovative solution to traditional urgent care and walk-in clinics. With just one phone call, you can talk to a top-tier doctor to receive care at any time of day. has a team of skilled doctors who can provide diagnosis, treatment, and prescriptions for medication entirely over the phone. Our doctors have all been trained at some of the best medical schools in the nation, including Stanford, UCLA, and Yale, ensuring that you get the best care without sacrificing convenience.

  2. Call back at your appointed time.
  3. Your doctor will diagnose and treat your illness or injury and prescribe any necessary medications.

The decreased resources has led to fewer doctors, making it harder to make appointments with primary care physicians. Urgent care centers and walk-in clinics have begun to sprout up throughout the country. Patients can turn to these services when they have common injuries or illnesses that need diagnosis and treatment. Even better, urgent care centers and walk-in clinics offer a viable means of accessing affordable health care.

Data from the United States Census Bureau shows that about 21.6 percent of residents under the age of 65 living in Glendale do not have health insurance. That causes many people to turn to urgent care when they get sick or injured.

Census data also shows that more than half (54.9 percent) of the population is foreign born. Immigrants often experience the most difficulties when applying for health insurance based on various linguistic, cultural, and social barriers. This leaves many uninsured and seeking alternate options for care, including urgent care centers and walk-in clinics. 

Glendale Urgent Care Wait Times

Walk-in Clinic GlendaleAll of this contributes to high demand for a very small number of resources, ultimately leading to long wait times and heavily congested waiting rooms. This is inconvenient, uncomfortable, and can even pose a health problem to more vulnerable patients. 

The wait times at urgent care facilities and walk-in clinics are generally lower than what you would expect in emergency rooms, but you still can’t always predict them.

The very nature of the service makes it hard for you to truly gauge the amount of time you need to wait. When people enter an urgent care facility, they are there to get a common illness or injury looked at. It’s safe to assume that most of the people waiting with you are dealing with something similar. However, you can’t predict the actual severity of any single person’s illness or injury.

This variation in severity is what often leads to unpredictable wait times. The urgent care staff may be forced to triage certain patients. This means they will prioritize patients based on the severity of their symptoms. Urgent care centers do not operate on a first come, first served basis. If someone comes into the clinic exhibiting more serious symptoms than you, they will probably be seen before you. 

Urgent care is also prone to daily surges. You can expect them to be busier from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, as people are getting out of work. Urgent care centers are often busier during weekends for similar reasons, though only 3 of the 4 urgent care centers in the city are open seven days a week.

Glendale Urgent CareUrgent care centers in Glendale can also succumb to seasonal changes. September marks the beginning of back to school season, which can often mean more illnesses for the family as kids interact with other kids and bring germs home. Cold and flu season, which often lasts from December to February, also leads to busier waiting rooms in urgent care centers. Summers may mean a reduced wait time, but you also have to contend with cases of overheating and general accidents as more people spend time enjoying the warm weather.

The overall wait time can fluctuate based on so many factors outside your control, but expect to wait anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour.

Wait times are a big inconvenience and generally uncomfortable, but for more vulnerable patients, they can present a health risk in the form of healthcare-associated infections. These are infections that patients develop while being treated for something else. For example, you may visit urgent care to get checked for the flu. You may be asked to wait for over an hour in a room with other patients who are sick with the cold. This leads to a high risk of contracting the cold, causing you to leave urgent care even sicker than when you entered.
