Clinic to change its hours

Area residents seeking medical services will soon be able to visit the Paynesville Area Medical Clinic every weekday evening. The clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Monday through Thursdays, starting May 3.

The clinic was formerly open on Friday evenings but not Thursdays. Patients not able to wait until Saturday morning for a clinic appointment will now have to come to the emergency room on Friday evenings.

Clinic hours on Fridays will be from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

On Saturdays, the clinic is open 8 a.m. to noon. The clinic staffing on Saturdays has been expanded to include two physicians instead of one, providing the opportunity for twice as many appointments.

Another change within the last year is staffing the clinic from 8 a.m. straight through the lunch hour until the close of the clinic. This allows patients who can't take time off from work to have an opportunity for appointments during their lunch break.
