Thu, 08/31/2017 The annual Seattle/King County Clinic offering free medical, vision and dental care is  coming up October 26th through October 29th and is being held at the Seattle Center.  About the Clinic All are welcome!

Bring a current eyeglass prescription (no older than one year) to skip the exam and just get eyeglasses. MEDICAL: Physical exams, PAP smears, x-rays, EKGs, mammograms, ultrasounds, foot care, wound care, select lab tests, behavioral health, immunizations, acupuncture, naturopathic and chiropractic care, physical therapy consultation, nutrition and pharmacy counseling RESOURCES: Social work, help with health insurance, and more How Do I Get Into the Clinic? Get a ticket at the Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center. Fisher Pavilion opens each day at 12:30 AM (see seattlecenter.org/patients for a map and details). A limited number of tickets will be given out each day starting at 5:00 AM. The ticket is only good for that day. One ticket per person. The first patients will enter the Clinic in Key Arena at 6:30 AM. Entrance will be in order of the number on the ticket. How Should I Prepare for the Clinic? This will be a long day. Come prepared to take care of yourself. Bring food and beverages and any medications you may need throughout the day. DO NOT fast for lab tests. To get dental care, you must have blood pressure and glucose within certain limits. This is for your safety. Wear comfortable clothing. Leave pets at home unless they are service animals. A parent or legal guardian must accompany a patient under age 18. Exceptions may be made for youth ages 13 and above who are not in contact with a parent or legal guardian. Will Someone Speak My Language? Interpretation will be available throughout the Clinic. What Happens Once I Enter the Clinic? There will be a large number of patients. You cannot get both dental and vision care on the same day. Patients can wait in line for an admission ticket on another day for additional services. We will collect basic personal information including name, age, height, weight and medical history. In each service area (dental, vision or medical) you will wait your turn in line and will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be given a pass when you enter the Clinic. This pass will allow you to leave and re-enter the building for that day only. However, if you are in line for a service, you will lose your place in line if you leave the building. You will need to go to the end of the line for that service when you return.   What Services Will NOT Be Provided? DENTAL: Bridges, complex extractions including wisdom teeth, dentures, implants, orthodontics, root canals on molars, sedation, teeth whitening VISION: Contacts, sunglasses MEDICAL: Biopsies, casts, CT scans, stitches/sutures, immunizations for children under 18 years of age, admission to a treatment facility, MRIs, new prescriptions for behavioral health medications Narcotics will not be used or prescribed. Authorization for medical marijuana will not be provided.   if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Ballard News Tribune West Seattle Herald Add new comment Your name Comment About text formats Save if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Recent Articles Annual FREE medical, vision and dental clinic set for Oct. 26 through 29 at Seattle Center Houston and Harvey – a cautionary tale Rabid bat found at SeaTac park Harvest Full Moon Photography Workshop at the Seattle Chinese Garden The  West Seattle Transportation Coalition Light Rail Workshop shares their results Easy Street Records will convert former Corner Pocket bar into new music venue, restaurant/bar if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Trending Annual FREE medical, vision and dental clinic set for Oct. 26 through 29 at Seattle Center Houston and Harvey – a cautionary tale Rabid bat found at SeaTac park Harvest Full Moon Photography Workshop at the Seattle Chinese Garden The  West Seattle Transportation Coalition Light Rail Workshop shares their results Easy Street Records will convert former Corner Pocket bar into new music venue, restaurant/bar if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Tweets by WSSeattleNews Tweets by WSSeattleNews Footer Contact Advertise Monthly Archive Print Edition Terms Publication Info Contact Advertise Monthly Archive Print Edition Terms Facebook Page Follow Us  RSS  Facebook  Twitter © 2017 Robinson Communications Inc.
