What to Expect
Epic, Our New Electronic Health Record, Launched October 3
We are excited to launch Epic, our new electronic health record! You may notice us doing things differently, such as using more electronic devices and less paper. As always, your safety is our highest priority and we are here to answer any questions you may have.
If you have an upcoming appointment:
- Make sure to be at the registration desk no later than 15 minutes before your appointment. This may mean that you need to arrive at the clinic location 20–25 minutes before the appointment, so you can complete parking and entrance procedures before registration. This will help us ensure that your visit can begin on time.
- Bring your current medication list so we can check our records carefully and make sure everything is correct.
COVID-19: What to Expect for Your Child’s Safety at In-Person Appointments
We’ve made a lot of changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from covid-19. Every patient is allowed to have a maximum of one parent or caregiver accompany them. Everyone else, including siblings of any age, may not come along. When you come for your appointment, you will see that we’re requiring everyone to wear masks at all times, cleaning check-in and registration desks between visits, screening for symptoms at all entrances and have set up our spaces to encourage social distancing. Watch what to expect at your clinic visit during your COVID-19 (video). Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place.

- Please bring your child’s testing records, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or 504 plans and report cards from your child’s school to the appointment.
- Ask your child’s primary care provider to fax your child’s records to us at 206-729-3063.
- Before your child’s appointment, we will set up a 1-hour discussion to better understand your goals for the evaluation. Often, we will schedule it as the first part of your appointment.
- Learn more about what to do before your appointment.
- We review the results and may gather more information from your child’s provider or school.
- We will schedule a follow-up visit to talk about results and recommendations. This visit may or may not include your child depending on what we decide during your first visit.
- After we talk about the results, we will mail you a written report. This report is confidential and only shared with schools and other providers if you and/or your child (13 years old or older) sign an “Authorization to Exchange Patient Health Information Form.”
- Based on your child’s needs, we may work with their healthcare team or attend school meetings like those that could help your child qualify for an IEP or 504 plan. Schools use these plans to outline help and services they can provide to your child.
- To help determine how your child is doing, we may need to do more evaluations to compare to the first results.
- Find your location in our map and directions section.
- Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to allow time for registration.
