Essentia Health extends hours for back-to-school physicals

As summer slips past, students are gearing up for school and the fall sports season. Part of that preparation includes physicals, and Essentia Health will offer evening appointments and walk-in availability to make it as convenient as possible for students to get ready for another school year.

From Aug. 6-8, these four Essentia clinics will feature extended care from 5-8 p.m.:

  • West Duluth Clinic, 4212 Grand Ave, Aug. 6 
  • Hermantown Clinic, 4855 W Arrowhead Rd, Aug. 7
  • Lakeside Clinic, 4621 E Superior St, Aug. 8
  • Proctor Clinic, 211 S Boundary Ave, Aug. 8

While an appointment is not required for these walk-in physicals, patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis, so making an appointment could save valuable time. To do so, or to schedule a physical during regular clinic hours, call (218) 786-8777.

Reminder: Essentia offers back-to-school physicals, by appointment, at all its primary care clinics. They also are available at Essentia’s walk-in care locations without an appointment.

Wondering whether your physical will be covered by insurance? Essentia encourages patients to check with their provider ahead of time.
