We are so happy to have you back in person!

When you arrive, at either our satellite or main clinic location, you may alert our staff by calling or texting 360-738-6916 when outside, or coming into the lobby.

If you are calling to check in, please let us know:

  • Which spot number you are in (look up on the beams/the signage in front of each spot)
  • Which car (make and color) you are in

Technician appointments are so quick, that we still prefer to have clients wait outside/in the lobby, unless you are specifically told otherwise by a doctor/team member.

With full love and compassion,

Kimberly Barron DVM
