As we continue to operate under the Coronavirus situation all healthy patient visits will be done by appointment only. This would include all physicals, i.e. firefighters, spouses, retirees and school/sports physicals.
Under normal times we would allow patients to wait to see if an opening occurred so they could be seen, but currently we are not allowing anyone to sit in the waiting room that does not have a scheduled appointment. If you do arrive to be seen as a healthy patient and do not have an appointment our front desk staff will work with you to find an opening that works for you. Better to just call first so as to not waste a trip over here.
The only exception to this will be lab draws for upcoming scheduled appointments. Providers are still encouraging firefighters to have blood work done up to two weeks prior to their appointment.
If you need an appointment for a school physical or a pre-operation clearance physical please do not wait until the last minute to call for an appointment, appointment slots are limited to clean exam rooms and available providers
We apologize for any inconvenience this may pose to you, but your safety is paramount.
A new process we have established for sick patients is to have you wait in your car after check in until your room is ready. And as before all rooms will be sanitized after each patient.
As a reminder the Wellness Center hours will be 8am-7pm Monday thru Friday and 9am-4pm on Saturday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Remember wash your hands frequently and practice social distancing, wear face coverings when necessary and for those of you on the trucks please use your PPE at all times and practice good hygiene!
