"The quality of care that you see at a retail clinic is equal or superior to what we see in a doctor's office or emergency department. And while there is a worry that they will prescribe antibiotics to everybody, we see equal rates occurring between the clinics and doctor's offices."

-Dr. Ateev Mehrotra, associate professor of health care policy and medicine at Harvard Medical School
