Please note, recommendations regarding COVID-19 from the CDC and King County Public Health are subject to change as frequently as daily. We will update this mailing as any major changes evolve (at a minimum of weekly) for the immediate future. Please refer to the CDC and KCPH resources above for most current information. 

Protocol for seeking care at Wise Patient:
Like all healthcare facilities we have an established protocol for appointments with symptomatic patients to minimize exposure to staff and other patients. Please contact us in advance of your appointment if you are experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath so we can best advise you and prepare the clinic to care for you. Additionally, we encourage patients to utilize Spruce & telemedicine resources to communicate with us.
