We are only able to offer a few specific services to the public at this time, which are provided on an appointment-basis ONLY and deemed urgent or emergent situations, until further notice.

If your appointment meets the criteria to be seen, we will contact you to confirm your appointment, otherwise please assume your appointment has been canceled.
