First Try: Hanover Hospital Express Care

June 17, 2012 | Comment

One in a occasional series of places around Hanover I am trying for the first time

I woke up with a special Father’s Day present – pink eye. My right eye felt a little funny yesterday, but didn’t seem like it rose to the level of conjunctivitis. I knew as soon as I woke up I had been wrong.

So I get to add something to my First Try series that I never expected: the walk-in clinic in Grandview Plaza.

I have to say, I really enjoyed my experience, well as much as anyone trying to get a prescription for an eye infection can. They didn’t make me feel rushed, but everything moved along quickly. Within an hour, I had been seen by two people, handled all the paperwork and had the prescription in hand (picked up at Giant on Baltimore Street).

I can totally see how these clinics, whether it’s this hospital-affiliated one or the other place in town, can really help people. Otherwise, I probably would have waited a day and taken sick time to get an appointment at my family doctor or eye doctor. And parents in there with a sick kid – sick, but not vomiting – may have ended up at the ER or sitting at home wondering if something worse was afoot.
