- As a reminder, if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and it is not an emergency, please call your Primary Care Provider BEFORE arriving at MLK OPC. Be prepared to answer the following questions:
- Do you have a fever, a cough or shortness of breath?
- Have you had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus? (Close contact means having been within 6 feet of that person for an extended time, or being exposed to their cough or sneeze.)
- If possible, please go alone to any appointments. Do not bring children, family members or friends unless you need assistance. Especially, do not bring anyone who has a cough, a fever or shortness of breath. A patient who is a minor may be accompanied by one parent or guardian.
- All patients and visitors will be screened prior to entering the facility. We thank you in advance for your patience as we aim to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
Pharmacy services remain open. Patients should call the pharmacy 5-7 days before running out of their medication to arrange for refills. Please ask a member of our pharmacy staff about potential delivery options. Our onsite pharmacy procedures have been revised to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Please visit our outdoor pick-up/check-in table located in the front of the MLK Outpatient Center entrance.
