WHEN IS THE OFFICE OPEN?
Regular clinic hours are Monday through Wednesday from 8am to 5pm and Thursdays from8am to 2 pm. We take our lunch from 1pm to 2pm so patients can schedule appoints during the “usual” lunch hour from 12pm to 1pm.
DO YOU SEE EMERGENCY PATIENTS?
Yes we do. For the patients in our practice, emergence care is available 7 days a week. We can also see emergence patients who have not been seen on our office as time is available during regular clinic hours. Give our office a call at 360-457-5152 to see if we can help you.
