What can you expect when you come to the clinic?
If you have no COIVD-19 symptoms and schedule an appointment at the clinic, come in the front door to check in as you normally would. Please stop at the station in the entry, sanitize your hands, and put on a mask. If you wore your own mask to the clinic, we ask that you either switch it out for the mask provided or simply place the mask provided over your mask (this helps us ensure masks are meeting medical standards).
When you get to the desk they will ask you basic screening questions. If you are symptom free, you will be checked in and immediately shown to a room. Your provider team will see you.
What do you do if you are not feeling well and need to be seen?
If you are not feeling well, please call the clinic. The front desk will schedule you with a provider for a telemedicine visit. The provider will contact you for the visit. The provider will determine if they can treat through telemedicine, clear you to come in the clinic, or set up to see you outside.
If you do not have access to a phone, please come to the clinic and ring the back door bell and we will be happy to serve you.
