Coming Soon!

Eye Associates Northwest is happy to announce we will be upgrading our EMR system as well as patient portal and online bill pay options. The roll out for these updated patient interfaces will take place through November. During this time, the patient portal and online bill pay features will not be available while we get these systems back online. During this time, please call our clinic line or billing lines for assistance. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Health Safety Notification

Patients are required to wear a face mask while in clinic to protect other patients and our staff. Please wear your mask for the duration of your visit unless your exam necessitates its removal. We appreciate your cooperation.
