We are now offering telemedicine visits! See the "For Patients" tab for more info.


COVID-19/ Coronavirus

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Advisory:

If you think you were exposed to COVID-19, contact Public Health – Seattle & King County by calling 1-800-525-0127 and pressing #. Unless it is an emergency, do not go to your nearest  emergency room without calling ahead, so they can take steps to provide  you with the right treatment and protect others from a possible exposure

Testing

While we are able to perform COVID-19 testing on a limited basis, the CDC has strict criteria for which patients can be tested. Not all sick patients will require testing. At this point, there is no rapid in-office test for us to diagnose COVID-19 or coronavirus.

Sick Visits

We follow office policies and guidelines set by the CDC to keep our staff and patients safe. To best protect you and your loved ones, we are taking significant measures  to prevent the spread of illness by having dedicated clinic hours for sick visits only, having all sick patients wear a mask upon arrival, and we now have  a separate sick visit waiting room. All patients who have a fever or cough are required to wear a mask while in the office. In order to meet the healthcare needs of our patients who  prefer to not come in to the clinic, we are offering telemedicine  visits. For more information on telemedicine or telehealth visits, please visit the "For Patients" tab.

Wellness Visits/Check-ups

Kids still need their regular checkups and we are here to help encourage healthy habits while they  navigate extended school closures.  When you are coming in for a well visit, you can be confident all high touch areas are sanitized after every patient, and there will be no sick visits during the same time you are in the office. We ask that if you  are coming in for a regular (non-sick) appointment and you are not 100%  well, to please change your appointment to telemedicine OR allow us to move your appointment time to a different hour in the day  to ensure there are no at-risk patients in the office. We have  temporarily removed all toys from our patient rooms, so if needed,  please feel free to bring your own.

How can you prevent the spread of COVID-19?

  • Please follow ALL of the recommended guidance for social distancing and do your part to help "flatten the curve" of cases.
  • Practice good personal health habits: wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds.  If they aren’t available use hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol. https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html 
  • Stay home when you are sick. Unless you require urgent medical attention stay home, take your immune support and rest.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth unless you’ve just washed your hands.
  • Get plenty of rest, drink fluids, eat healthy foods, get fresh air and manage your stress.
