Our Blog: To Your Health
As healthcare providers, we at The Oregon Clinic puts the well-being of our patients and our staff first. So, we are glad to be able to once again serve our patients with the care you and your family’s needs.
With Governor Brown’s announcement that non-emergency medical procedures can start again as of May 1, we will begin reopening for some procedures at most of our clinic locations.
When it comes to your health, we want to make sure you’re receiving the best quality care possible. That includes working with your other healthcare providers to make communicating about your care as easy and convenient as possible.
