Operating Hours

Until further notice, our hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience. As always, we have a doctor on-call 24/7.
 
Community Family Practice is canceling our walk-in clinic. In light of the C0VID-19 epidemic, we feel it is important to triage all sick patients over the phone prior to arrival in our office.

Please note that we will continue to offer scheduled same day appointments for acute problems, including sick visits and COVID-19 testing when appropriate. Please call us at 254-2444 for an appointment.

Televisits

Many insurers have relaxed telehealth requirements during the pandemic. We are offering phone and televisits to patients who meet criteria.

If you're scheduled for a Televisit, your provider will send a text message containing a link to your smart phone when they're ready to connect with you.  Phones should have video capability. 

PLEASE NOTE

We are asking all well and sick patients to call us from their car when they arrive for their appointment. This allows us to isolate all patients appropriately. Some patients may be evaluated outside or in their car.
 
Regarding COVID-19 testing: Call us for an appointment if you need COVID testing. We are prioritizing people with symptoms, people who have been exposed to a known case, and people who work in occupations where they have a high risk of exposure.
 
If you have COVID, you should stay at home and not expose others until it has been at least 10 days from the onset of your symptoms AND at least 3 days with no fever and improvement in any respiratory symptoms.

COVID-19 Vaccine Updates:

Covid-19 Vaccines Available Now:  Scheduling appointments to administer the Covid vaccine for 6 months through 17 years of age will begin Wednesday, July 6th, 2022. The only appointment times available are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 12:30-5. We have Moderna and Pfizer in stock.

05/2021 New CDC guidance has eased masking and social distancing restrictions for fully-vaccinated individuals!  Healthcare is one exception to that rule and CFP's policy remains that all patients, staff, and providers will remain masked and socially distanced (where appropriate), regardless of vaccination status.  For more information, please visit: https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/vaccines  

05/2021  We're excited to report that the COVID-19 vaccine is now readily available for ages 12 and up and that the vaccine is continuing to become more readily available within the community!  We hope to be able to offer that to our patients soon, but in the meantime, you can visit https://myspot.nc.gov/ to find a local vaccination site that offers appointments or walk-in COVID19 vaccines.
