Walk-in medical clinics will be open with special hours to accommodate eclipse crowds.

They're for only non-emergencies such as burns dehydration and broken bones.

Casper doctors say their purpose is to provide the best medical care possible.

"People can get health care rather than having to go to the ER for stuff that’s less emergent” says Travis Scoresby with Wyoming Medical Center.

Saying wait times will virtually be nonexistent.

"We’re fully staffed and the wait time on Sunday is gonna be short."
Doctors at Wyoming Medical Center say if you have a minor injury or illness its best to seek medical attention at one of their walk-in clinics.

Dr. Andy Dunn and his staff wants "to keep the emergency room open for traumas, heart attacks, strokes, acute issues that need medical services."
