Walk-in medical clinic near Oak Park, IL?

Is there a decent walk-in medical clinic (i.e., urgent care center) near Oak Park, IL (Chicago area)?

I'm posting this on behalf of my wife, new-xero (I'm korpios, and I just burned an AskMeFi question last night); she's pretty sick right now due to a panic attack and the aftereffects, and we were hoping to find a walk-in clinic within reasonable driving distance. We're loathe to use the emergency room unless we're forced; she probably just needs a prescription for some benzodiazepines. Any suggestions? Yelp isn't really helping.

There is a Resurrection Health Care Immediate Care facility on Cumberland (aka First Ave.) just north of Lawrence Ave. About 20 min from Oak Park.

timsteil: It turns out we've been there before; they were absolutely awful. :-/ Anything not in the Ressurection chain? I'm almost ready to take her to the ER; this makes me miss the health care options in our previous homes (Lawrence KS and upstate NY).

Try Advocate Good Samaritan in Downers Grove.

We ended up going to a Physicians Immediate Care location in the Loop area (spotted in a Yelp discussion), as it was the only place we could find that was still open; they were prompt and professional. It was a 20 minute drive, but worth it in this case; we'll likely use them again in the future.
