Keeping you safe

Your safety is important to us. We’ve added new protocols to keep you and our staff safe. Please:

  • Cancel your appointment if you:
    • Feel sick.
    • Think you have been exposed to COVID-19.
  • Wear a face covering, it’s required. It must cover your nose and mouth while you’re in the office. Please bring your own. If you don’t have one, we’ll cancel your appointment.
  • Sanitize your hands when you arrive at the office.
  • Take a COVID-19 health screening questionnaire.
  • Practice social distancing and wait for instructions before approaching the counter.
  • Let us know when you make an appointment if you need to bring a translator, caregiver, or dependent.

Thank you for your patience during these difficult times. Our added measures come from guidance from the Governor’s Office, Labor and Industries, and Department of Health.
