COVID-19 information

Our patients' health and safety are our top priorities. We have thorough safety measures in place to protect you, your caregivers and our staff. Please visit our vaccine page for important updates about vaccine availability and scheduling. 

General Information   |   Vaccine 

Starting on December 6, we will require that all visitors accompanying patients to any SCCA clinic location provide proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have received a negative COVID-19 test result within the past 72 hours. Please note, patients do not have to show proof of vaccination or a negative test.

The goal of this new policy is to make our health care locations safer for our patients, who may have limited responses to vaccines or may not be eligible to be vaccinated due to their ongoing treatment.

A smoker until age 65, Bill Eberhart is grateful for routine screening that found his lung cancer early
A smoker until age 65, Bill Eberhart is grateful for routine screening that found his lung cancer early

When Bill Eberhart relocated to Sequim, Wash., from Hawaii, several years ago, he needed to find new doctors. Eberhart made an appointment with a new primary care provider, who asked if he was a smoker. “I used to be,” Eberhart responded, “but I haven’t smoked in over five years.” Still, when the doctor heard that Eberhart, 71, had smoked for more than 40 years before that, he immediately recommended lung cancer screening.

In 2016, Dr. Morhaf Al Achkar was in a unique position. As a primary care physician (PCP) at University of Washington Medicine, he knew he needed to act quickly when he started experiencing ongoing and worsening shortness of breath. An X-ray showed that his lungs were full of fluid, and a pathology report confirmed what he had already started to suspect: lung cancer. Within a month of his diagnosis, he was taking a targeted oral treatment, an option he was eligible for due to the ALK (Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase) gene found during his initial testing.

As the owner of a steel fabrication company, Cade Marshall gets dozens of requests for quotes every day.

In the spring of 2012, Maria Pearson was grooming one of her horses when he tossed his head to dispel flies and knocked Pearson in the chest, causing her left breast to swell up. A few months later, she fell off that same horse, broke her hand and tore her rotator cuff. It was a rough few months, to say the least.
