Hurricane Ian Update: 10/05/22
The Clinic is now fully operational and providing urgent care only in the Clinic. We are able to refill medications and are triaging calls and getting the doctors messages. Our focus is on immediate urgent patient needs. We’re also out helping in the community’s recovery efforts.
We have not yet determined when we will be able to resume “routine” appointments. When it’s appropriate, we will reschedule those patients whose appointments were missed and then begin to set new appointments. We appreciate your continued patience during this time.
IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, DIAL 911 FOR IMMEDIATE HELP!
