The Anacortes and La Conner clinics are now open for in-person care. Call our office to request an in-person appointment. 


We’re excited to share our plans for providing safe care and testing to our community. It’s vital that you do not delay any needed care. We are committed to your safety and our goal is to make our Clinic spaces the safest place you can receive care.

  • We will screen all patients for COVID-19 symptoms when scheduling an appointment and when you come in for your visit.
  • When you arrive for your in-person appointment, please call our office. We will come to get you from your vehicle, so you do not have to sit in the waiting room. 
  • Patients and teammates will be asked to wear a mask at all times 
  • We have increased Clinic cleanings before, during, and after clinic hours. 


Medical problems have not gone away since the arrival of COVID-19 and we have plenty of capacity both in-person and virtually to handle your needs. Routine preventative care visits are important to maintain. We want to keep you healthy and avoid preventable issues and unnecessary emergency room visits. 


Virtual Care
Virtual care is a simple, safe, and secure way for you to talk with your provider and care team without having to come into the Clinic. Virtual care will continue to be a convenient option for many patients, including those at higher risk.  


Testing
We encourage all patients with COVID-19 symptoms or concerns to seek testing. Ask us which test is right for you.

FAQs
What are the symptoms of the Coronavirus? 

  • Symptoms include fever, cough, low energy, and shortness of breath. Loss of smell, nausea, and vomiting also can occur. These overlap with typical cold and flu symptoms. Call if you have symptoms and we can arrange a virtual visit to evaluate your risk.

What do I do if I have coronavirus symptoms? 

  • If you have symptoms, isolation at home is advised for at least seven days following symptom onset OR until 72 hours after fever is gone and symptoms get better, whichever is longer. 
  • If you do not have symptoms but were exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19, you should quarantine by staying at home, avoiding public places, and monitoring your health for 14 days following the last day you were exposed to the ill person. 
  • If you develop mild symptoms, you should stay home and away from other people. If you develop symptoms that cannot be managed at home or you are at high-risk for complications (age 60 years or over, are pregnant or have other medical conditions), call us and we can advise you.   

How can I protect myself? 

  • To prevent infection, cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash; wash your hands often for 20 seconds with soap and water; and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.


Continue to be safe and educate yourself on the current situation. Let us know what concerns you may have so that we can best meet your needs. We are here for you!
