If your child was seen at one of our Urgent Care locations within the last 48 hours and you have questions about your visit, please call 206-987-2211 during our clinic hours of operation. If you need an interpreter, call 866-583-1527 and ask for “Urgent Care scheduling.” Please note: we cannot provide medical advice over the phone.
