Hi! I don’t know if you’re wearing masks all day, but these little guys are supposed to take the pressure off your ears.

I made these acrylic ear savers to donate to anyone in the medical field who wants them locally. I’m going to drop them off at a contact at the hospital this week, but if you want some I’d be happy to drop them by! Just let me know 🙂

Operating as usual

[06/01/21]   WE'RE MOVING!!!

You may have heard the rumors...and it's true! We've outgrown our lil' building on 3rd street, so we are moving up the road and across the bridge to west Mount Vernon at 617 W. Division Street.

Along with this expansion, we will be changing our name to Valley Roots Family Care.

We cannot wait to show you around the new digs, and we will get that chance starting JULY 1st, 2021! That means, if you have an appointment on or after July 1st, you will need to go to our new location.


Who’s your family doc?

Vaccine appointments available for eligible Skagit County residents | 790 KGMI 01/21/2021

Vaccine appointments available for eligible Skagit County residents | 790 KGMI

If you are phase eligible and would like to schedule a vaccine appointment at Skagit Regional Health, please call 360-814-6300.

The Mount Vernon Haggen Pharmacy is also scheduling appointments and Island Hospital has started booking appointments for established patients or those who live in the hospital district.

Washington is currently in Phase 1B - Tier 1 of the phased approach and is accepting appointments for individuals 65 and older, or 50 and older if they live in a multigenerational household. Vaccine appointments are dependent upon vaccine availability and weekly shipments of vaccine from the state of Washington.

Vaccine appointments available for eligible Skagit County residents | 790 KGMI Those 65 or older, or those 50 or older who live in a multi-generational household are eligible to receive the vaccine, along with those in Phase 1A


We have received many calls, emails, and other messages regarding COVID vaccinations. Please read below to learn everything we know about vaccine allocation.

Covid vaccines in the state of WA are being given under the guidance of the Department of Health and the CDC. Guidelines list the order people are to receive vaccines and can be found for Skagit County at:
Currently there are very few clinics and pharmacies that are administering the vaccine as the supply is low. These locations are mostly out on the islands or in smaller rural areas with low access to care. We are moving to Phase 1b: tier 1, which includes people 50+ with a health condition, 70+, and now teachers. This begins Jan 26th. Please call the Skagit County Health Department at 360-416-1500 to get added to the list. Or you can go to In addition, there is hope that soon local pharmacies will carry the vaccine as well, but a date is not determined at this time. As more information becomes available we will post to our website. Please check the Skagit county website for updates as they will have any changes noted.


“Waiting Room Blues”



With the recent COVID-19 trend, we have made some changes to the flow of your appointments. Please bear with us as we navigate our new check-in system. Patience is low and frustrations are high, but if we continue to work as a community through this, the journey will be much more bearable.
With that being said, upon your arrival to the clinic, we ask that you remain in your car as our waiting room is now closed. This is an extra social distancing effort. There will be a sign visable from your parking space with a phone number and parking stall number. Please call the phone number provided (this line will be designated for patient check-in ONLY) and you will reach reception. Your nurse will be notified which stall you are in and come to you to take your temperature and show you into your exam room. Please limit guests at this time and remember that guests accompanying you to your appointment should expect to have their temperature taken as well. Copayments and other account questions/concerns can be addressed by reception at check out. Please remember to keep your mask on for the duration of your visit. We are also still offering telecare. Thank you all for your support and assistance with these changes. ❤️❤️❤️


These girls are DOMIN-ating health care AND Halloween! Well, all except Jamie would confused the tile game with the pizza chain. She tries. (We promise she’s better with medical billing!) Hope you all have a very happy and healthy Halloween.
We hope to “tip into” you soon!

David Benson, MD & Christina Jepperson, ARNP


Hi, all! We hope you are all doing well during this rocky time. Our doors are still open, and we are still doing telecare.

We'd like to take a moment to spread some GOOD news! We would like to welcome CORALIE MESLIN, ARNP to our small, tight-knit team here at David Benson's clinic!!! Hooray!!!
We understand that we've had limited availability so far this year, and we are taking steps to limit our patient need to utilize urgent care. Thanks for hanging in there with us! 😊
You may have seen some other new faces, as we've hired in reception and nursing as well this year. We are thrilled to have a few more hands on deck to assist in caring for our wonderful community of patients and friends.

Read below for a brief bio on Coralie Meslin, ARNP:

"I grew up in the area and love to play outside and take advantage of all the goodness that our corner of the world offers. As a family nurse practitioner I am committed to working with families across the lifespan and am looking forward to serving the community as part of the team at David Benson, MD, PLLC. My background is in harm reduction, which is all about meeting patients where they are at and working in partnership with them to restore function, build resilience, and live their lives to the fullest. I am creative and flexible, and committed to using shared decision making and evidence-based practices to inform the journey that my patients allow me to participate in. On a community level, I believe deeply in social justice and access to health care, and I volunteer my time both locally and abroad in order provide care and do my tiny part to tip the scales towards equity. For the last two years I’ve had the good fortune to participate in an annual trip to Nepal, working with a group of Nepali and Western clinicians as part of the Nomads Clinic, where we trek into remote areas and set up clinics for villages that don’t otherwise have any access to health care."


[03/12/20]   Hi folks!

We wanted to update our patients about how we have been operating with the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

We are still seeing patients here in clinic. We are a low volume clinic and have been taking extra measures for keeping our building clean. We welcome all patients coming in for routine checks and physicals, OB appointments, etc.

If you are having any cold or flu symptoms at this time, we welcome you to call our office at (360)428-1884, as we will be offering TELEMEDICINE. You will be able to speak to a nurse or provider over the phone and receive diagnosis, meds when needed, advice, etc.

Remember we are open, we are available by phone, wash your hands, and cough into your elbows! 03/10/2020

Frequently Asked Questions About COVID-19 (March 8, 2020) As the Department of Health responds to the COVID-19 outbreak in Washington State, we get hundreds of questions each day.


Hello dear friends!

This is a post from the CDC and Sedro Woolley School District.:

Please help stop the spread of germs.

We coordinate with the Skagit County Health District in protecting children from certain symptoms of communicable diseases. If your child has any of these symptoms, please keep them home, or make appropriate child care arrangements.

• APPEARANCE, BEHAVIOR – unusually tired, pale, lack of appetite, difficult to wake, or irritable. This is sufficient reason to keep a child home from school.
• EYES – red with thick green or yellow drainage may indicate a bacterial conjunctivitis.
• FEVER – child should remain home with TEMPERATURE OF 100 DEGREES Fahrenheit or higher. Child must be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine. Greenish nose discharge, and/or chronic cough – please contact your health care provider for a plan of action.
• SORE THROAT – especially with fever or rash. Children with possible strep throat should be seen by their provider.
• DIARRHEA – watery stools in past 24-hour period especially if the child acts or looks ill.
• VOMITING – within the past 24 hours.
• RASH – body rash, especially with fever or itching.
• EAR PAIN – student with drainage/pain/fever need to be seen by a health care provider. Student does not need to be excluded unless discomfort interrupts the learning process. Untreated ear infections can cause permanent hearing loss.
• ANTIBIOTICS – If your child has an illness that requires antibiotics, please check with your provider as to when the child may return to school.

Bringing a child to school with the above symptoms puts other children and staff at risk of getting sick. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, in the long run, this means less illness and fewer lost workdays for parents.

Please call your student's school to excuse the absence due to any of the above symptoms. Students showing any of the above symptoms will be sent home per district and state policies.

You can help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses like Coronavirus Disease 2019. Follow these simple daily precautions.



We weren’t the only ones with Halloween spirit yesterday! We LOVED seeing all of your costumes, and we were able to snag some pics of a few of them! Aren’t they just the cutest??
*posted with permission from their mummies*


We channeled our inner emotions here at the clinic and dressed as characters from INSIDE OUT!

....heavens, Jamie, will you ever be on the same page??? *characters* from Inside Out, not *literally* inside out...




It’s almost HALLOWEEN and we want to see all of your costumes tomorrow!! Remember to come to the clinic for trick-or-treating and to see what we are up to this year...

[10/24/19]   Here Ye, Hear Ye!

We've been getting a lot of calls about insurance for 2020. Exciting times.

Here's what you need to know...
We are NOT contracted with the following for 2020:

-Humana (unless it's a PPO)
-UMP Plus (this is a current option for school district & state employees)
-Kaiser Permanente Medicare Supplement (we are contracted with stand-alone Kaiser)

If you have further questions, give the office a call and ask for our billing expert, Jamie!
