Will minute clinic deal with parasites?

Will minute clinic deal with parasites? It's pretty obvious I have hookworm because its all over my cheek meat. I don't have insurance and really need this treated fast so I'm kinda panicked. All I need is an albendazole prescription.

Hello and welcome,

I appreciate your concern,

Hookworm infection can be easily confirmed by a test performed on a fresh stool sample,which in case of the infection, shows eggs of the parasites.
So most probably they will test you in the minute clinic and if you're positive for the parasitic infection,they'll give you a prescription for albendazole.

I hope this is helpful,

Wishing you the best of health.
