Testimonials

Love this place

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

Shelly

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

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.

Are you at risk for diabetes, have diabetes or know someone who does?  Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes and affects millions of Native Americans. Many people are unaware that they have diabetes or  pre-diabetes. Native Americans are twice as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than others. Some common signs and symptoms include:
•  Frequent infections
•  Blurred vision
•  Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
•  Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
•  Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

This past month has been a very great month for all the health programs. We have be reorganizing some of the programs and adding a few more benefits for the tribal members. In the Shawnee Clinic, Dr. Walsh is a part time internal medicine physician who is slowly building up her practice. Because of this, there are many patients still waiting to get appointments and because of the need for another provider, we are going to add a full time physician in Shawnee. We are currently advertising for medical providers and hope to have someone hired by the end of the year. This will help to add more patients to the Shawnee location and have a full time medical provider in the Shawnee Clinic that help with the patient load currently being carried by Stacy Curtis, PA. Once we get a physician hired, we will make sure to announce this in the tribal newsletter.

Each and every day we get up and do all the things we need to do to prepare for the start of our new day. Such as take a shower, brush our teeth, comb our hair, shave, and get dressed. How many of us sing a little song or take a small amount of time to play an instrument like the piano or guitar or just set back and enjoy the beauty of music. Music appreciation is one method that can relax you from a long day at work or school and is a real life changing tool.

I work with elders and their grandchildren have told them that music has changed their lives & helped them to make a hard day easier and a more enjoyable day. Studies have shown that children that have music in their lives have a much better attitude in school and at home. Child care and children’s health vol.7 October 5, 2012 http://www.gpo.gov/

The Great American Smokeout will be observed on November 15, 2012 and is supported by individuals, organizations and businesses across the United States. This day provides an opportunity to join literally millions of other smokers in saying “no thanks” to cigarettes for 24 hours. As many as one-third of the nations’s 46 million smokers could be taking the day off from smoking. The Great American Smokeout inspires and encourages smokers to quit for one day. Booths will be set up at the Shawnee Health Center and the Little Axe Health Center with opportunities to learn how to quit tobacco and to make a long-term plan to quit for good.
