Testimonials

I was very pleased with my visit. It was easy to get an appointment in a timely fashion as well as [get] a courtesy call to remind me of my appointment. Jackie was easy to talk to and explained things in a manner I could understand. Jackie also gave me a almost daily updates on my lab work.

Sidna

Other providers choose not to accept patients with primarily soonercare, and its almost unwelcoming.  At the Little Axe Clinic, I don't experience that.  The services are excellent and patients are treated with the highest regard.

Melissa

The AST Clinic is top tier in service. They have quality medical professionals that talk and explain things in an understandable way. For sure 5 stars!!!!
