Doha Clinic Operating Hours
Today I was coming down with some kind of eye infection so I decided to go to Doha Clinic to get it checked out. I was pretty sure it closes in the afternoon so I did an internet search to find their hours. No luck: their website required that I download Java just to go beyond their main page (no thanks), no other website had the hours, and even my Marhaba magazine didn’t have it. Strange. No wonder some people stumble onto my blog searching for “Doha Clinic hours”, it’s hard to find online.
Anyway I went this evening and saw the doctor. On my way out I asked reception what the clinic's hours were. It turns out it depends on the department as the various departments have different hours. So from Sunday to Thursday a department might be open (I'm going from memory here):
from 8am-12 then 4-8pm;
from 8am-2pm then 4-8pm; or
from 8am to 8pm.
I didn't even ask what the Friday hours were but I'm assuming they don't open until, at the earliest, 4pm. I'm assuming the Emergency Room is open 24 hours.
The 8pm is when they accept the last registration for patients to see the doctor that day, the doctors will stay until 9pm or longer to see all the patients who have registered.
So I guess your best bet is to just call to see when the department you want is open: 44384333
