To locate or expedite a referral, please call Clinical Intake Coordinators at 206-987-2080, option 2.
Updated August 2022.
We are accepting new referrals.
Please submit a referral that is complete. This helps us schedule your patient’s appointment in a timely manner and ensure their first visit is smooth and productive.
We may not schedule patients until a complete referral is received.
