Soon you will be able to get treated for chronic illness at your local Walgreens.
The pharmacy chain has expanded patient services at most of its 370 "Take Care Clinics" around the country.
So along with ankle sprains and sinus infections, clinic staff now treats chronic conditions like high blood pressure, asthma and diabetes.
Walgreens says the clinics aren't meant to replace more traditional medical facilities or primary care doctors, but rather provide walk-in service and quality care at night and on weekends.
