Novant Health Express

Express clinics offer convenient walk-in care, with extended weekday and weekend hours, to treat common illnesses and minor injuries for those ages two and older.

A nurse practitioner or physician assistant can diagnose and treat medical conditions, prescribe needed medications, conduct work and sports physicals, and provide wellness screenings and vaccinations. Novant Health physicians provide medical supervision.

Express clinics are not equipped with X-ray machines and staff does not conduct any invasive exams, set broken bones or apply stitches. The clinics can perform "point of care" tests such as cholesterol screening, rapid strep tests, or blood glucose.
