An appointment is strongly encouraged to reduce wait times and to ensure smooth, quick service. Fill out our online form to make an appointment request, call 661.868.0701 to schedule an appointment, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although an appointment is not required to receive service, scheduling an appointment does ensure that your materials are ready for pickup and that you receive quicker service. Customers that arrive without an appointment may experience wait times and all materials may not be available.
