It has come to SLEC Management’s attention that applicants are sleeping on the sidewalks and stand-ins are being offered for a sum of money by individuals not affiliated with SLEC. In order to avoid unscrupulous practices and for the safety of everyone, SLEC will no longer accept walk-ins and will only accommodate applicants with appointments in the clinic.

Please book your appointment by online registration at our website

Thank you.
