Your Doc’s In began after its founder, Dr. Walt Gianelle, recognized a need for more accessible healthcare in the area. Throughout his many years practicing emergency medicine at hospitals throughout the Shore, he witnessed many patients characterize the ER as their only option when unscheduled medical events arose. Dr. Gianelle envisioned Your Doc’s In as a way to bridge this healthcare gap by providing an alternative option to the ER for less serious medical conditions.


Dr. Gianelle’s initial vision was not only achieved, it even surpassed its original goals, as Your Doc’s In has been a tremendous success for the local healthcare community and has even been voted Coastal Style’s Best Urgent Care facility for the past four years. Since its inception, the experienced Your Doc’s In team has maintained a reputation for delivering the highest standard of care for residents and visitors to the Shore. 


Accessible, quality healthcare is still the foundation of the mission at Your Doc’s In. It provides easy access to high-quality care from a team of board-certified physicians and medical staff for patients who need to be seen in a timely manner but whose symptoms do not warrant a trip to the ER. With the capability to treat roughly 80 percent of what an ER can, Your Doc’s In delivers care for a wide range of non-life-threatening injuries for patients of all ages. It not only offers a necessary service to the community, it also has significantly reduced healthcare costs for patients.


Convenience is also a key benefit. Patients are never required to set up an appointment, and they may walk in at their convenience. To ensure proximity to patients across Delmarva, Your Doc’s In offers six different office locations, including West Ocean City, North Salisbury, South Salisbury, Cambridge, Pocomoke and Easton. 


The team at Your Doc’s In would like to remind the community that as the fall season approaches, so does the peak time for flu prevention. Your Doc’s In encourages people of all demographics receive a flu shot, especially pediatric and elderly patients. 


“The reality is the potential risks of the flu are very real and have hit close to the Shore community in the past,” said Dr. Gianelle. 


When flu epidemics arise, the detrimental effects to the community often include increased occurrences of missed school and work, as well as increased flu-related doctor’s visits and hospitalizations. The flu vaccination not only protects against four different flu strains but also prevents the spread of the flu across the community. Patients wishing to receive a flu shot may walk into any Your Doc’s In office location. As with all visits to Your Doc’s In, no appointment is needed. 


Your Doc’s In proudly provides free flu shots for all military veterans. Dr. Gianelle, a veteran himself, has always maintained a close relationship with and appreciation of the military. Prior to founding Your Doc’s In, Dr. Gianelle served for five years on the rescue team for the space shuttle Columbia’s test flights as a pararescueman in the U.S. Air Force. Several other members of the Gianelle family have also served in the military, including Dr. Gianelle’s oldest son, Michael, who has been deployed to Afghanistan twice. 


“I recognize the sacrifice military men and women have made for our country, and our free flu clinic is a service we are honored to provide the many veterans of Delmarva,” said Dr. Gianelle.
