The quality of care and compassion is above and beyond other health care facilities I have used in the past.

Graciela F.

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!!!!


The receptionists are always cooperative and friendly to me. The nurses are friendly and concerned about my personal health issues and the doctor is friendly, helpful and a relief to me and my health care.

Survey Responses Needed

We are still seeking responses. The AST Health System is involved in the 2021 Community Needs Assessment Survey. We’d appreciate your help in this important survey. Generally, a community health needs assessment is conducted every three years to ensure we continue to address both changes and challenges facing the community’s health. This is meant to put a plan together to meet the communities’ needs identified by key stakeholders (Tribal officials, the AST Health System, and YOU - the patient)!
