Do I need to make a reservation?
We highly encourage you to make a reservation online to complete your patient registration prior to your visit.
Wait times are based on patient volume, so reserving your spot in line will allow you to fill out all necessary paperwork prior to your visit and keep you updated with wait times.

What if I test positive?
Stay home and isolate at least 10 days since your symptoms began, at least 24 hours since you last had a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications, and symptoms have improved overall.
