- We are able to perform nasal swab testing for COVID-19 in office, however testing at other sites (e.g. DOH drive-through or Seattle Children's) has a much quicker turnaround time. - Visit https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/COVID19/TestingforCOVID19 to find a site near you and to browse the FAQs. - Testing at Seattle Children's does require a telemedicine visit with us first. Antibody Testing - If you would like a blood test to determine if you have antibodies or have questions about COVID-19 antibody testing, we are offering 15 minute telemedicine visits for this service.

What to expect at your visit
We have implemented some clinic changes given the COVID-19 pandemic to try to minimize risk to you and our staff. Many visits can be done using telemedicine and your provider will let you know if an in-person appointment is required. For those patients who need to be seen in-person, we have implemented some changes in order to keep everyone as healthy as possible. - First, we are doing the first part of the visit over the phone. This will take place from your car when you arrive. - Second, we are following recommended healthcare guidelines and ask that all adults and kids over age 2, regardless of vaccination status, bring and wear a mask while in the clinic. We will be wearing one as well. - Last, if any member of the household is feeling unwell, has a fever or cough, or has had a fever or cough in the last 72 hours, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment.
We are currently seeing all ages for their check-ups. When you are coming in for a wellness visit, you can be confident all high touch areas are sanitized after every patient, and there will be no sick visits during the same time you are in the office. We will minimize your time in-office and work to keep everyone safe by following the procedures above.
