Please know that our staff is here for you. When you come in for an appointment, a urine sample may be required. If so, we have provided a red marker in the restroom to initial your sample if you feel you are experiencing any form of violence such as domestic or sexual. This provides our patients an opportunity to notify their provider of such concerns in a private manner. If anyone has accompanied you to an appointment, he or she will be asked to leave the room before discussing your concerns.
