The top 21 walk-in clinics in Toronto by neighbourhood
Toronto walk-in clinics can be hit or miss, so you need to know where to find a good one for when you'll need its services the most. Not all clinics are the same - some keep later hours, or are open weekends, while others specialize in certain types of conditions or treatments.
Here are my picks for the top walk-in clinics in Toronto by neighbourhood.
