The clinic, which specializes in treating adult and geriatric patients, is open for appointments Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is able to offer a range of in-house comprehensive laboratory work and studies. The clinic is conveniently located in walking proximity to Knapp Medical Center, allowing for ease of transition for those patients who may have visited the hospital recently.

The compassionate resident physicians serving in the clinic are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to care for the patients of the Valley outside of the hospital setting and to provide regular evidence-based individualized clinical care in the outpatient setting.
