Welcome to Entira Family Clinics!

PATIENT UPDATE:
The MN Department of Health (MDH) has recommended all patients be universally masked. For the safety of yourself and our staff, we advise wearing your own mask (or other cloth face coverings such as a bandana or scarf) when you come to the clinic for any upcoming appointments.  The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Thank you. 

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE:
Currently, our North St. Paul clinic is now offering COVID-19 testing for patients who have symptoms.

• Patients need to call 651-788-4444 to talk to a Triage Nurse.
• After talking to a Triage Nurse, they will schedule a TeleVisit with the patient’s primary care provider.
• After the TeleVisit appointment, the provider will then decide if a COVID-19 test should be performed and inform the patient during this time.
• After determining if the patient needs a COVID-19 test, THEN the patient will be directed to go to our North St. Paul clinic for testing.

Please see this link for more information on testing locations. 
There are additional symptoms stated by the CDC, see below:

RESPIRATORY CARE CLINIC IS OPEN:
In order to best take care for all our patients in a safe environment, we have designed our Highland Clinic as a Respiratory Care Clinic open M-F from 9 am – 3 pm; hours may vary. Starting April 6, 2020, our Highland Clinic location will focus on taking care of patients who need to be seen for fevers, coughs, shortness of breath and sore throats, as well as additional symptoms. Please see link hereOur other 9 East Metro Clinics will be open for evaluations that require in person visits. Separating out clinics this way will help to decrease the spread of COVID-19. Our patient’s safety is our #1 goal and we feel this is in the best interest of our patients and staff to keep everyone as safe as possible. Our providers are on a rotation to service this clinic. You must have a scheduled appointment to be seen at the Respiratory Care Clinic by calling Scheduling at 651-788-4444.  Please see the Highland Clinic page for more detailed information.
