Hours/Services

Hours.  The Clinic is open on Tuesdays from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 5:30-8:00 p.m.  If a holiday falls on either of these days, the Clinic will be closed.  Weather may cause the clinic to close on a particular day, so please check our Home page for up to date information.

Because we are staffed by volunteers, we reserve the right to close the Clinic early if there are no patients.  This allows our volunteers to return to their personal lives for the night.  Please feel free to call to make sure we are open or to give us a heads up that you’re coming in.

 

Services.  We serve patients from all walks of life with no income limitation.  The clinic currently offers acute care services only, such as urinary tract infection, flu, colds, sore throat, and ear infection.  This involves short-term treatment for an injury or episode of illness.  We cannot treat chronic conditions which require long-term care.

Our services include:

–    Office visits
–    Minor procedures
–    Removal or freezing of skin lesions
–    Ingrown toenails
–    Suturing lacerations
–    Exploring for foreign bodies
–    Removal of sebaceous cysts

We use Path Lab for any lab tests deemed necessary by the doctor.  There is no charge to the patient for lab tests.

If you are unsure whether we can treat your medical problem, please contact us by email or by phone during Clinic hours.
