'Little Clinic' coming to Suwanee Kroger store

SUWANEE -- A Suwanee Kroger will be the latest location for "The Little Clinic," billed as a convenient medical office open seven days a week with no appointment necessary.

A clinic will open Thursday at the Kroger store located at 400 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. The Little Clinic currently operates locations in Cartersville and Marietta, and will have six offices open for business by August.

"With the addition of four more locations in 2012, there will be a convenient location of The Little Clinic in several Atlanta-area communities," said Johnett Thompson, the Nashville-based organization's regional clinical director. "Our quality of care is further supported by our convenient and affordable services and we that these benefits resonate with our patients' busy schedules."

The Little Clinic locations are staffed with nurse practitioners authorized to diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common illnesses like bronchitis, sinus infections, seasonal allergies and the flu. They also offer camp and sports physicals, health screenings and vaccinations, officials said.

Offices care for everyone ages 18 months and up. They are open seven days a week and do not require an appointment.
