While masking is optional at all MWHC facilities, we prioritize the health and safety of our patients and staff. If you experience respiratory symptoms on the day of your appointment, we kindly request that you wear a mask to protect yourself and those around you. Additionally, we understand the importance of support, and you are welcome to bring up to two support persons or parents to accompany you inside the office.
