Message from Heather Christensen: Friday Harbor Family Clinic opened in the spring of 2022 with the goal of providing traditional medical care to Island families that is both personal and easily accessible. The response from our Island community has been extremely gratifying. It is time for us to take a step back and assess whether the extraordinarily rapid growth of our practice can continue to meet those goals without some changes.
Therefore, effective December 1, 2023, we have made the painful decision to temporarily pause accepting new adult patients. There will be no pause in accepting pediatric patients from newborns through college age.
Quality of care, service, and access cannot be compromised. We are assessing what is needed to resume accepting new patients, and ask for your understanding during this period of transition.
The three of us are humbled by your support and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday Season.
