Walk-In Appointments Offered by Some Primary Care Doctors
Source: Times Union

To compete with urgent care centers, some family practice facilities are extending their hours and adding walk-in appointments. Physicians at these clinics feel they are able to offer more comprehensive care to patients by keeping them from visiting other clinics who are unfamiliar with their particular health history.

Source: American Society of Anesthesiologists

Most children and even some adults have needle phobias, which can make it difficult for physicians to vaccinate patients. A new device presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2014 annual meeting shows how injections can now be painless. The device applies pressure and vibration during the injection, which decreases the perception of pain. Right now, it has only been used on adults, so more testing will need to be done on children to see if the product would help pediatricians.
