Frequently Asked Questions

Do you see pediatrics?

Absolutely! We see patients of all ages. Family practice is care throughout the lifespan. For specialized needs, we will you refer you to a specialist.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Country Doctor Community Clinic and Carolyn Downs Family Medical Center are not walk-in clinics. However, walk-in patients can be triaged by our nurses and potentially worked in between scheduled appointments. Scheduled appointments will take priority. Due to the unpredictability of walk-in volumes, you may end up with a long wait. Our After-Hours Clinic operates on a walk-in basis only and is open daily to serve you — weekdays, 6–10 p.m, and weekends, noon–10 p.m.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Please bring your insurance cards, medical coupons (if any), previous medical records and immunization records and your current address and phone number.  New patients must bring the completed registration form. (Click here to download registration form).

What if I am late or miss my appointment?

If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment you may be asked to reschedule. If you do not show up for your appointment without cancelling in advance 3 times in 6 months you will not be able to schedule an appointment.  You will still be seen, but as a walk-in, waiting until a provider has an opening in their schedule.

How do I get my prescriptions refilled?

Please call your outside pharmacy to request refill(s) for all prescriptions filled outside of CDCHC. If the prescription is from our in-house pharmacy, please call one of our pharmacy lines to request your refill. For Country Doctor Community Clinic pharmacy, call (206) 299-1618. For Carolyn Downs Family Medical Center pharmacy, call (206) 299-1935. Please allow 48-72 hours to refill your medication. You may need to make an appointment or obtain lab work for your refill(s).

How do I get my lab, X-ray, or ultrasound results?

We will contact you regarding all testing reformed at our office. If you have not heard from our office about your lab results, please call our main number.

How do I obtain my medical records?

If you need your medical records sent or received, please fill out a Medical Records Release of Information Form. You can download the form from this site or request a form from your clinic's Front Desk or from your medical assistant. You can also make your request directly from our Medical Records Department.
