HUNTERSVILLE – The MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinic inside the CVS at 7920 Sam Furr Road offers free A1c tests for diabetics through Dec. 31. The tests, sponsored by Bayer Diabetes Care, are available while supplies last.
MinuteClinic is open seven days a week, and no appointment is necessary. As part of the complimentary A1c test, MinuteClinic practitioners will check a patient’s vital signs, review medical history and administer the blood test. Results are available within five minutes and are discussed with the patient. A visit summary that includes the A1c test results is made available to primary care providers with patient permission.
