Rafael Medicus Clinic
A good outcome from the Pandemic was the birth of our Telemedicine Services. Established patients who are unable to come to the clinic may set up a Telemedicine appointment with one of our providers. Please call our office (253) 474-5141 to be placed in an appointment slot for Telemedicine. Your prescription will be called in or faxed by our provider-on-duty. For those wishing opiate treatment and it is after-hours, the grant on overdose prevention is now over, so you will have to leave your name and number in our voicemail, or contact us through our webpage at www.rafaelmedicusclinic.com.
