Looking for a non-sketchy, reputable urgent care walk-in clinic near downtown LA. Need a cortisone shot and painkiller. Thanks!

Health Care Partners across Olympic from the Regal Cinemas at LA Live:
Address is: 929 S. Georgia St., Los Angeles, CA 90015 This obscure street is W of Figueroa, E of the 110, N of Olympic and S of 9th; there's a parking lot between the urgent care and Olympic, and the under-construction Marriott Courtyard is right there.

I'll be frank: it's kind of beat up. But they've been perfectly fine when I've needed them. My GP practices out of the health care center connected to the urgent care.

I asked a friend in LA who recommended Hollywood Walk In Clinic, but I don't know how accessible that is for you.

And as I'm sure you're aware, when you go to a doctor and begin a conversation with "I need a painkiller," you may be viewed as opiate/drug-seeking and sent away without anything, so consider how to better phrase what's going on, where the pain is, how long you've had it and what treatments have worked in the past.

They're not downtown, but if you can make it over to the LAX area I've been very happy with a place called New Care Clinic. I've never had a wait, they're nice, they seem to know what they're doing and they're pretty affordable. It's not a sliding scale, but I had a visit that included a urinalysis recently and I think the whole thing cost me about 70 bucks.

Hollywood Walk In hooked me up when my insurance hadn't kicked in yet and I had that horrible dry cough that was all over last year about this time.
