I have gone to a walk in clinic when I didn't want to wait days for an appointment with my Dr. There are no set appointments so you may have to wait a while and it is a crap shoot on which Dr. you will get. Can't be worse than your current one.
Thanks for this tip. I've thought of trying a walk-in before but wasn't sure what they would be willing to do for me. Were you diagnosed with a thyroid problem at a walk-in clinic or did you go in for meds/changes to your situation after being diagnosed?
