Do doctors work on weekends?

Besides doctors at hospitals, do doctors in clinics work during weekends? I need to go see a doctor for checkups but I work 8-5 Monday through Friday and I don't think I can afford to take a day off from work. I found a program called "Doctors Care" but that's only available in the east coast and I live in California. So do I just need to keep searching for a weekend doctor or do they not exist in So. California?

Re: Do doctors work on weekends?

I don't know about California, and I don't know about clinics... but many private-practice MDs here keep late afternoon/early evening hours at least one day a week. My hubby's primary doc takes appts until 6:00 on Tuesdays, and his eye doc stays until 7:00 one night a week.
Call around some offices and ask.
