Excellent Services, Wide Variety of Services in one location, Caring Staff and physicians, [and] Excellent Education/ Resources for Native Americans. I would recommend this clinic to others!


I love the fact that the wait times aren't that long. They seem to stay on schedule and its easy to get a same day appointment. Jackie the women's health provider is easy to talk to and very informative. Over all it's always a great experience and would recommend this clinic to anyone looking to change their doctor.


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.
