Due to evolving COVID-19 changes, Parnassus and Mission Bay clinic hours of operations have changed. Some services may be modified or reduced beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 until further notice.

For your safety and to minimize the potential of virus exposure for our patients and staff, we are screening patients via phone or secure messaging before scheduling any in-person appointments. As a result, we have temporarily disabled online scheduling of all in-person appointments and we are not taking walk-ins. You may schedule an online virtual appointment if you believe that you do not need to be physically examined in-person, as an initial encounter, or for general medical advice. If you believe that your concern requires physical examination, then you must call our office for to schedule an appointment.
