Geisinger Careworks Walk-In Clinic will open in the Weis Market Plaza at 604 Continental Blvd., Suite 100, Danville, PA, on November 3.  If you have an immediate need to see a provider but your provider is not available, Careworks offers healthcare when you need it most.  The clinic will be open every day from 10 am to 8:30 pm.  No appointment is necessary.
