In light of the unprecedented challenges our healthcare system faces with the COVID-19 pandemic, a ban has been issued on all non-urgent medical procedures, and at this moment we our state is under a shelter at home order. We have therefore had to close the office, and Dr. Baxter is on standby for anticipated shortage of medical professionals at Swedish Hospital Edmonds. As we do not know how long this situation will last, we request that you contact Dr. Baxter by email ( with any non-urgent questions. If urgent he will be available via the answering service.

We hope to schedule limited consultations directly with Dr. Baxter but will do them by phone. We will ask you to email photos ahead of time.

We ask for your understanding and patience, particularly from those of you who have scheduled procedures. We promise to get things up and running as soon as it is reasonable to do so responsibly. We value and need your support during this challenging time. Please keep in touch and stay well.
