A clinic is a medical facility that provides outpatient services to patients for various medical conditions, illnesses or injuries. Clinics can be privately owned, run by a government or non-profit organization, or affiliated with a hospital. Some of the services that clinics may offer include routine checkups, diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, vaccinations, physical examinations, and health screenings. They may also provide specialized services like dental care, gynecology, and pediatrics. Clinics are usually staffed with doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who work together to provide comprehensive medical care to patients.
