On average, you have 3-6 weeks before seeing a doctor. They'll not give you more then 15 min and prefer 5 min and you have to be referred for x-rays and other treatments.Remember this is a POOR PERSONS clinic. Not some nice doctors office where you drop $150 to see the doctor. You WAIT and if you don;t have an appointment, you could be sitting ALL DAY waiting.PLus, you usually end up getting seen by a PA NOT the doctor and the PAs are leery of handing out any drugs...In fact, you could be in AGONY and they'll suggest naproxen....Be warned, they cheated the state and had to repay 72 MILLION. Think of that! They care so much, they had to pay a FINE for CHEATING the state. Then they have the GALL to say "We care"....

My husband went there for an urgent treatment for work related injury a year and a half ago,. I received a bill from there which should have been covered by L&I, I have already made around 10 phone calls to the clinics billing department and to L&I, to this day the bill is still pending and nothing has been resolved. Horrible experience and horrible customer service. Will never go back to them.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
