Can I come to the clinic to get a second opinion about my diagnosis?

Yes. Because of the walk-in format and time constraints, it may take more than one visit to complete the evaluation.  Always try to see the Provider that started the evaluation (suggested but nor required).  Please bring in medical records to make the visit more productive and to avoid unnecessary repeating of tests.

Can I always see the same Doctor?

Yes.  Our providers rotate between Clinics, so use the on-line calendar to see their schedule.  If your condition is acute and unstable, we request you do not delay care and recheck with the Provider(s) schedule that day. If this is a recheck for a Worker's Compensation Injury, we suggest you recheck with the provider who has been treating you.  Please call the clinic for further information.
