At Community Health Center of Snohomish, we provide extensive medical care in all of Snohomish County and surrounding areas. We offer medical attention in seven different locations, strategically located to provide easy access to all families in Snohomish.
Why is Medical Care Important?
Medical attention is extremely important at all times, not only during accidents or emergencies. Access to basic healthcare is vital for children and adults to live healthy lives and achieve their full potential.
Besides treating illnesses and injuries that are already apparent, our medical care professionals can work to prevent, detect, and treat problems that are not yet manifesting any symptoms. By “catching” these illnesses early on, we can prevent them from becoming more serious. Regular medical care also helps guarantee that your children are growing and developing healthily.
Primary Care Physicians
Primary care physicians can be considered the cornerstone of medical care. These doctors work as a first point of contact for persons with an undiagnosed health concern.
At Community Health Center of Snohomish, our primary care physicians are able to identify and treat large a spectrum of common medical conditions. In the event that you need specialized assistance, your primary care physician will be able to identify the need for and refer you to a specialty doctor.

Pediatricians specialize in taking care of children of all ages, from toddlers and newborns right down to young teenagers. At Community Health Center of Snohomish, our professional pediatricians provide medical care to children of all ages, including older teenagers who have slightly different needs and younger kids alike.
We provide medical care to address physical ailments and mental well-being as well. Our behavioral health experts focus on studying emotions, behaviors, and biological clues that affect your ability to function in everyday life.
Behavioral health covers a huge scope of conditions and diseases that can be treated with therapy, medication, or a combination of the two. Note that unlike mental health, behavioral health takes into account non-biological factors that may influence or even be the root cause for certain conditions. These ailments include, but are not limited to:
Stress and stress-induced disorders
Psychiatric medical care is very similar to behavioral health because they both address homologous disorders and conditions. The main difference is that psychiatry covers both mental and behavioral health disorders, and can propose a combination of different techniques that help improve the overall mental and behavioral health of individuals. Some of these can include:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Other alternative therapies
At Community Health Center of Snohomish, we have found that one of the best ways to treat chronic and recurrent health conditions is through nutrition. Specialized dietary modifications can help patients with common chronic conditions such as high cholesterol, unhealthy sugar levels, and elevated blood pressure.
Besides treating any conditions, our team of nutritionists can help you adopt healthier eating and exercising habits. Keep in mind that we don’t only consider the physical aspects surrounding your diet, but we also look at personal and emotional aspects that help mold your entire lifestyle.
If you have a non-urgent medical problem that needs to be seen right away, please call our clinics at any time of the day. If our clinics are closed a provider will be paged immediately to help you.
