Northwest Medical Specialties

About Your Appointment

Northwest Medical Specialties believes in the value of preventative services. Preventative exams are an important part of providing high quality care to ensure our patients remain healthy. Northwest Medical Specialties is confident you will be satisfied in the care we provide.

When Scheduling an Appointment

To schedule an appointment, please call 206-668-1341.

When you make your appointment, let the scheduler know the nature of your health concerns. If you have numerous concerns, you may need more time than is allotted for a standard visit. We may be able to offer a longer appointment time -- ask if a longer appointment time is available if you think you'll need it.

If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please call us at least one business day before your appointment. There may be a charge for late cancellations or no-shows.

Northwest Medical Specialties' patients who are in need of hospitalization will be admitted to Northwest Hospital & Medical Center unless requested otherwise.

Visit types

Your insurance will be charged depending on the type of your visit: Preventive and/or Medical Condition. Charges for services are according to the visit type that appears in your medical record. Please do not ask your healthcare provider/physician or clinic to change the type of service billed if your insurance company denies payment. Patients are responsible for payment if your insurance refuses to pay for the visit.

Medical Condition Services

Services that are for the diagnosis and treatment of new problems or illness will be considered a medical condition service (not a preventive service) and may be applied to the deductible.

Preventive Services and Medical Condition Services Combined

If the Provider and patient determine both types of visits are required, your insurance may be charged for both a preventive service and for a medical condition service. Your insurance may require two copayments-one for the preventive service and one for the medical condition service.
