*Separate entrances & marked parking areas exist for WELL and SICK visits. Once arrived and parked at AAC, we request that all patients wait in their cars and call 952-943-8200 to let us know that you are ready to be seen. At that time AAC staff will direct you to the appropriate entrance and meet you.

*Well Child Checks/Sports Physicals are currently being scheduled in the clinic for ALL AGES.

*All other visits will continue to be screened at the time of scheduling to determine if a telehealth or clinic visit is appropriate.

*All visits require screening prior to being scheduled - WALK IN VISITS, and Saturday clinic hours remain unavailable at this time.
