Can i go into a clinic by myself at age 15 in Minnesota?

Patient : I'm 15 and I live in Minnesota, my friends have been really concerned at my eating habits. I was wondering if I could go into a clinic without a parent present or If they would be notified? I feel obligated to go because my one of my lower ribs on the right side moves inward when I breath then cracks back into place when I exhale. I definitely want to check it out but I want to do it discretely. Is there any laws that would be in my flavor, where I could go in by myself?
Symptoms:  Cant keep food down
