PATIENT ALERT:    

With the doctor shortage crisis, demand for medical care at our clinic has greatly increased. Through these difficult times, we’ve tried to deliver the best medical care possible to our community, being one of the few clinics who've never closed our doors to in-office visits since the onset of Covid-19. 

   

The walk-in doctors see up to 40 -50 patients daily (double that of some doctors doing only telephone calls).  

   

However, there’s a trend of a ‘flash- mob’ style of patients coming at the opening which is sometimes resulting in: 

   

      1)    the clinic may need to stop accepting patients within 1.5 - 2.5 hrs                        after opening and     

  

2)    1.5 - 3+ hour wait time.    

   

We understand this can trying, as we too are feeling the same experience. 

   

We ask that you please be understanding, respectful, and compliant with the receptionists - They are working very hard trying to balance patient visits with office capacity.   When the office has met or exceeded capacity, we will have to stop accepting patients.    

   

There is ZERO-TOLERANCE to any form of language or conduct to our staff that is considered abusive, harassing, or threatening, and for any non-compliance or defiance to our staff. 

   

Any such conduct as described above may result a permanent expulsion from the office. If there are safety concerns, we will contact the authorities for immediate assistance.    


Following regulations limiting waiting room patient capacity, you must be prepared that you cannot wait inside the office if there are patients ahead of you. When your turn to see the doctor is approaching, you will be called by the receptionist.
