By appointment only. Four clinic dates per month.
What to Expect
We try to make our experience as much like a regular doctor's office as possible. Patients are greeted at our check in stations and might have paperwork to fill out while in the waiting room. A nurse will take you to triage- height, weight, updating medicine list, etc. You'll go to an exam room to wait for the next available provider. Based on each patient's needs, they might order labs or write prescriptions. We can draw blood for any regular labs in house and fill prescriptions that we have in stock. Some things we can't do at our clinic, but we'll walk you through whatever is needed for your care, including referrals or applications for financial assistance with pharmaceutical companies, specialists, or hospitals.
At this time there is a waiting list for dental care. After we receive an initial application or inquiry, patients are placed on the waiting list and prioritized by level of need and date of application.
What to Expect
When patients arrive at the clinic they are assessed by the dentist, x-rays are taken if needed, and the dentist develops a treatment plan. The treatment plan is then used by a variety of volunteer dentists to care for the needs of the patient. Many of our patients need cavity fillings or tooth extractions. We have limited appointments for regular dental cleanings. We are not able to provide dentures or partials at this time.
The pharmacy is open during every clinic for new prescriptions and refills for existing patients. Once a medication is prescribed, patients can call the pharmacy for refills as their prescription allows. Each pharmacist is licensed and provides educational information for patients as they receive new prescriptions.
Many medications dispensed at the pharmacy are received through Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) provided by pharmaceutical companies, which require proof of income. Each patient is assisted and guided through the application process to receive medications from various pharmaceutical companies. Generic medications are also available to patients at the pharmacy.
We do not prescribe or stock controlled substances. We do not fill prescriptions for patients seen at other clinics.
