Our family doctors provide a broad spectrum of care for our patients, including obstetrics (we deliver!), hospitalist, procedures, prevention visits, and chronic disease management.
We not only offer clinic services, but also admit our patients to either Sacred Heart or Deaconess Medical Centers in the case hospitalization is required.
We provide full obstetric services including prenatal care and delivery at either hospital. This provides mothers-to-be with the advantage of having their own physician know them before delivery, having that physician or a partner you are also familiar with deliver the baby, and that same well-known face see her and her baby for care after the big event!
We provide the following services in our clinic. All services are also offered for a fee for those patients that do not have insurance. Please contact our office for a current fee schedule.
We commonly manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, and musculoskeletal disorders.
Well-child exams, prevention visits for adults, driving certification exams, and sports physicals are all part of our spectrum of care.
For acute visits, we save same-day appointments for those last minute situations when you need to be seen right away.
We offer several specialty clinics within our own clinic. This entails bringing local specialists into our own clinic one to two times per month. This helps our patients to access specialty care when needed and also enhances the training for our residents. These are scheduled only for patients that have been seen in our general clinic and deemed by that provider to need additional evaluation. Clinics may change, but generally include: orthopedics, pediatrics, adolescent medicine, geriatrics, rheumatology, nutrition, psychology, chronic disease management, podiatry, gynecology and osteopathic treatment.
Resident physicians are on-call 24 hours per day to triage calls for patients. These calls are for urgent advice, such as whether to go to the emergency room to be seen. They are not for refills of medications, which must be requested during normal business hours.
We have University of Washington psychiatry residents and faculty also rotating in our clinic several times weekly.
PAML Laboratory has on-site lab testing within our clinic. This allows patients to get labs collected.
We manage some patients with chronic pain, but limit these services in order to better give our residents a full-spectrum of training. We are not currently accepting new chronic pain management patients.
