Clinic getting new name

Whidbey Island Internal Medicine in Coupeville is becoming WhidbeyHealth Primary Care Coupeville.

The change comes after Dr. Lee Roof’s March 1 retirement, according to a WhidbeyHealth spokesperson. The office is at 77 North Main St.

“Medical Internist Dennis Rochier, MD will oversee the transition as the clinic’s medical director. Dr. Rochier will be available to see patients at the Coupeville location twice per week, in addition to being available to patients at WhidbeyHealth Primary Care Freeland,” according to the spokesperson. “He will be joined by two WhidbeyHealth full-time providers to be named before the opening.”

“Dr. Roof’s office staff will remain at work with WhidbeyHealth.”

The clinic is closed through Tuesday, March 12, but is open for phone calls during this time. It reopens for clinic hours March 13.
