Like the physicians office, all screenings are professional and confidential. Childrens services may include general preventative care such as hearing and vision testing, well baby checkups, and parent education classes. Local clinics provide education and services regarding a variety of things. They may raise awareness about health and safety through counseling and health fairs. Nutritional services, domestic abuse, diabetes, smoking cessation, and guidelines for development are just a few of the things that local clinics may be able to help with. Local clinics are not limited to preventative screening and education. Several services that are offered in labs and the physician's office can be done at the clinic. Blood tests, x-rays, and non narcotic drugs and prescriptions, such as antibiotics can usually be obtained. Depending on the size and area of the local clinic some may even provide mild emergency care. Some local clinics are specialty clinics. This means that they only offer particular services.

However, some services could be free of charge, depending on the service and when it is offered. Local clinics are not just for those who cannot afford services elsewhere.
