In most cases, you will see your own doctor. There may be times your doctor is out of the office or has a full schedule. We may then ask if you'd want to see another doctor that day.
If, on rare occasion, we can't book an appointment for you at our clinic, we'll suggest you use an Everett Clinic Walk-In Clinic.OR

Our doctors and nurses are with other patients during the day. They will call you as soon as they are able.
If you call:
- From 8 to 10 a.m., we'll try to return your call between 12 and 2 p.m.
- From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., we'll try to call you by 6 p.m.
- After 4 p.m., we may need to call you back the next day. It will depend on your reason for calling and how urgent it is.
If you call after 5 p.m., we'll ask the on-call doctor to call you. The doctor will determine if you need to get care right away, or if you can make an appointment for the next day.
If you need care right away, the doctor will ask you to go to the nearest emergency room or urgent care clinic.
Please have the name and phone number of your preferred pharmacy ready, in case the on-call doctor needs to write a prescription for you.OR
