Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, wants to be your doctor, too.

In September 2019 the company known for its “Everyday Low Prices” launched Walmart Health, a primary care clinic, at a store in Dallas, Georgia. The doctor-run clinic, the first of its kind for the big box retailer, offers services like X-rays, annual checkups and dental exams.
