Walk in visits are welcome, but we can't guarantee that our staff won't be with another patient. We encourage you to make an appointment before coming to the health center to be sure someone is free to help you.

Childcare Policies

We’re unable to provide childcare at our health center. For safety reasons children need to be accompanied by an adult when they’re in the waiting room. Only infants can accompany you to the exam room. Please bring a friend or family member to be with your children if you don’t have childcare at home.

Only infants and toddlers in a car seat or stroller are allowed in the exam room. Please make arrangements for childcare for any other children.

Services Offered

You can fill your birth control prescriptions at our health center instead of the pharmacy. Birth control refill pickups are available during normal business hours except on Wednesdays. Wednesday services are by appointment only.

You can come to us for services that don’t require a medical exam. For example, birth control education and supplies; emergency contraception (AKA the morning after pill); pregnancy testing and counseling; STD testing, and testing and treatments for urinary tract infections.

Specialty Services

You may be able to get your birth control pills mailed to you. Ask the health center staff for more information.

Pills by Mail is available at this health center — a service that delivers birth control pills to your home each month. Ask the health center staff for more information.
