Northtown Medical Clinic


Important:

Due to unexpected physician illness (non-COVID related), the clinic is CLOSED to in-person medical visits until further notice.

TO OUR FAMILY PRACTICE PATIENTS: if you wish to contact the doctor with an urgent medical concern, please text the doctor's cell phone number with your name and your request (such as prescription renewal, urgent medical problem, etc.). Your understanding is greatly appreciated as the doctor is still recovering from illness and may take 3-4 days to respond to your text.

TO OUR WALK-IN PATIENTS: We are temporarily suspending walk-in patient visits until further notice.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to return to our regular services in early November. This website will be updated regularly with new announcements.

If you have a medical emergency please proceed to the Emergency Room. For patients awaiting urgent test results, please see another walk-in clinic and request a copy of the results from the lab or radiology clinic where you had your test done. Otherwise, please go to ER.

FLU SHOTS: Due to physician illness, we are not able to provide in-person flu shot visits until early November. We encourage everyone over the age of 6 months to get their flu shot this year, unless you have medical reasons not to receive the immunization.

FLU SHOTS FOR FAMILY PRACTICE PATIENTS: this year you may contact your pharmacy or another walk-in clinic to receive your flu shot (if you are eligible). Otherwise, please contact our office or text the doctor if you would like to make an appointment to receive the flu shot from our doctor in November (or possibly earlier depending on circumstances).

FLU SHOTS FOR WALK-IN PATIENTS: We regret that this year we are not able to provide flu shots for walk-in patients due to physician illness. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and hope to resume our regular flu shot services next fall.

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, our clinic is now offering telephone appointments to make sure that we continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using telephone for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come to our office.

Some health concerns can be addressed with telephone appointments alone, but in some cases our doctor may ask you to visit a hospital or other health care facility for a physical examination (if necessary). Please call our office during our telephone hours to confirm if a telephone appointment is the best option for you.
