Testimonials

Love this place

I love this place.  I think it is the best clinic I have been to.

Shelly

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.
