The Pharmacy Clinic Will See You Now

Hundreds of clinics have opened in chain drugstores across the country and more are coming on line every day as the need for primary care grows and delays face those who need access to a doctor, as The Palm Beach Post reports.

Clinics in pharmacies tend to use physician's assistants and nurse practitioners,  both of whom are trained to assess and treat minor illnesses.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
