Professional, Comfortable, Easy
Home Towne Family Medicine is a new style of clinic that combines the latest technology, up-to-date medicine, comfortable surroundings, and attention to personal service. To make it easy, we offer evening hours, and can usually accommodate you on the same day if you call in the morning.
As you might have noticed, our cosmetic line of business, dubbed Home Towne Beauty, originally slated to open in April, 2020, has been postponed due to abundance of caution surrounding COVID-19. Watch for developments! For this and other great news, click here for details.
We are located near sunny Downtown Burien, close to Highline Medical Center. We are on the corner 156 Street SW and 3rd Avenue, one block west of the Social Security Office. For details of how to get here, please see details below.
You have all seen it, or heard others complaining about it. Doctors' offices with generic waiting rooms, where patients wait for hours, reading proverbial magazines from yesteryear, waiting for their names to be called, wondering when they would be seen. Patients who say they cannot get in to see their doctor for days or weeks.
We had such experiences too, and wanted to make Home Towne Family Medicine a different kind of clinic. We wanted to make patients comfortable and feel pampered. We want them to be able to say that they get the attention they want, when they want. Of course, we still want to deliver the most up to date medical care in the compassionate way that you expect from your old family doctor.
Independent, Yet Connected
Home Towne Family Medicine is an independent primary care clinic that is part of the diverse medical community of Burien. We have a close-knit relationship with and refer to other independent primary care and specialty providers in the area, as well as members of the Franciscan Medical Group. Our primary hospital is Highline Medical Center, part of the CHI Franciscan Health Network. When appropriate or by patient preference, we also refer to and utilize other specialists and facilities in the Puget Sound area, such as Swedish Medical Center and University of Washington Meidcal Center.
