Amherstburg has a population of 21,936 residents and is one of Southwestern Ontario's most charming historic communities. Residents of Amherstburg often find it challenging to access immediate medical care. There are only a few walk-in clinics in town and many have limited hours of operation. For instance, Amherstburg Medical Associates and Walk-In Clinic & Laboratory at 721 Front Rd S is only open until 3pm on weekdays and has reduced weekend hours. If you require medical care after hours, even for a minor health issue, your only alternative is to go to Windsor Regional Hospital at 1030 Quellette Ave and wait for hours to see a doctor.

Yes, doctors at the Virtual Health Clinic are taking new patients in Amherstburg. You can book an appointment with an online doctor in Amherstburg from the comfort and safety of your home through the Virtual Health Clinic. In order to meet with a doctor virtually, all you need to do is:
It is recommended to take your health card when going to a walk-in clinic. If you don't have a health card, walk-in clinics and other healthcare providers may ask you to pay for the services upfront, and you may need to seek reimbursement from your provincial health authority later. However, the reimbursement process and eligibility for coverage without a health card can differ among provinces and territories.
In Ontario, a walk-in clinic is a healthcare facility where you can receive medical attention without an appointment, typically for non-emergency issues. Urgent care centers, on the other hand, provide more comprehensive medical services for conditions that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening, often with extended hours and additional medical resources.
No, walk-in clinics are not free in Ontario. Patients may be billed for services provided at walk-in clinics, either through their provincial health insurance or out-of-pocket, depending on their eligibility and the specific services received.
