Duane Reade may still seem like it really does have a pharmacy on every corner of New York City, but none of those drugstores is going to house a clinic anymore.

The New York City Department of Health says the move is not likely to have dramatic impact because “the vast majority of primary care visits occur in non-retail clinic settings.” A letter Duane Reade sent out suggested that former patients take their business to another retail clinic—or to urgent care providers CityMD and MedRite Urgent Care.
