We ask that patients wait in your car for appointments. Please call us when you arrive at 701-746-7521. When we are ready for you, we will call you and our nursing staff will direct you to check in and be brought back to your treatment room after reviewing a number of screening questions with you.

Please do not bring non-essential individuals with you to your appointments. Wash your hands in any restroom or treatment room; hand sanitizer is available to use as well. 

We are in the process of developing a telemedicine option and hope to train staff this week. Office hours may be reduced in the near future. We appreciate your patience.
