This was the first time I've ever had a provider actually take the time to answer all of my questions and not feel like I was being rushed out the door.

Lakewood Health System has expanded its Staples clinic hours to include evening appointments from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and  Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for walk-in visits.

The extended evening hours are essentially an extension of the clinic, so appointments can be made for the same types of issues someone might be seen for during regular clinic hours. No appointments are need for Saturday visits, which will be set aside for medical conditions that are not life-threatening but that require more immediate attention.

This increased access will provide more convenient options for you in times when you need it most.


Each of our family practice providers belongs to a care team, which is determined by the clinics out of which they practice. They see patients at our main clinic in Staples, as well as in the “satellite” clinics indicated by their care team name. Each care team includes physicians and advanced practice clinicians, as well as nursing and support staff, and LPN care coordinators. If you’re unable to see your primary care provider for any reason, you can make an appointment with another member of their team, and receive the same great care.

The care coordinators for each team will be the main contact for patients whose primary care provider belongs to that respective team. (Your primary care provider is the medical provider you see most often for your healthcare needs.) As a patient of that team you will have a direct phone number for your coordinators who will assist you with scheduling appointments, addressing questions or concerns, and gathering pre- and post-visit information.
