We are proud to bring to the Native American community a new era of healthcare not only in the physical sense - with new buildings and facilities and technology - but in the philosophical sense as well. We are committed to setting in motion a new era of healthcare; one that will redefine the standards by which we have both received care and cared for ourselves.

Testimonials

Very impressed with the service provided by the Doctor, technicians & staff that were in attendance. I appreciate the level of care I was given. Thank you.

 

Elizabeth F.

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.

Good customer service
