Making Your Health First Priority
You have all seen it, or heard others complaining about it. Doctors' offices with generic waiting rooms, where patients wait for hours, reading proverbial magazines from yesteryear, waiting for their names to be called, wondering when they would be seen.
We had such experiences too, and wanted to make Home Towne Family Medicine a different kind of clinic. We wanted to make patients comfortable and feel pampered. We want them to be able to say that they get the attention they want, when they want. Of course, we still want to deliver the most up to date medical care in the compassionate way that you expect from your old family doctor.
Independent, Yet Connected
Home Towne Family Medicine is an independent primary care clinic that is part of the diverse medical community of Burien. We have a close-knit relationship with and refer to other independent primary care and specialty providers in the area, as well as members of the Franciscan Medical Group. Our primary hospital is St. Anne (formerly Highline Medical Center), part of the Virginia Mason Franciscan Health Network. When appropriate or by patient preference, we also refer to and utilize other specialists and facilities in the Puget Sound area, such as Swedish Medical Center and University of Washington Medical Center.
Professional, Comfortable, Easy
Home Towne Family Medicine
We are a new style of clinic that combines the latest technology, up-to-date medicine, comfortable surroundings, and attention to personal service. To make it easy, we offer evening hours. For more urgent matters, and can usually accommodate you on the same day if you call in the morning.
As Whitney has changed career paths to pursue new challenges, we are sadly to announce the conclusion of the beauty side of our offerings, effective immediately. Thank you for all those who participated in our 'Refresh' venture.
Virtual, Late, and Same Day Visits
We are committed to keeping our patients healthy, and virtual visits provide an alternative when you cannot be in the clinic physically. Usually virtual visits are conducted via Updox, our patient portal. Although we are not an urgent care clinic, we do have after-hours appointments on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays to at least 8 pm. Although Dr. Choi will likely be more booked up with Whitney gone, please let our staff know if you need an urgent appointment, and they can always squeeze you in with our 'No Patient Left Behind' policy.
With the departure of Whitney, we sadly have to also say goodbye to our pediatric patients. Without her, we cannot keep up with the increasing administrative burden of keeping vaccines on site. Families in her panel will be reassigned to other clinics, especially pediatricians.
Preventative Care and Chronic Care Management
At Home Towne Family Medicine, we focus on Preventative Care. Most insurances have preventative visits, and we encourage all to take full advantage of them. For those Medicare and Medicare Advantage patients with chronic conditions, we recognize that more time and energy is needed than depending on the occasional, often event-driven visits. To this end, we have partnered with COSAN to coordinate care. They help us offer more focused time for those who need it, and provide and adhere to a comprehensive plan of care.
