Testimonials

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.

"[I] used the small clinic south of Hwy 9 in Little Axe. I am very impressed witht he growth and the continued excellent care I have received over the years. The doctors, nurses, lab, wellness and pharmacy have been better than most in the private sector."

How can you tell if you're hitting the mark when it comes to good oral care? Generally, your 
teeth and gums should not bleed, be painful, or feel rough or sharp to your tongue.  Your breath 
should be fresh for at least a couple of hours after brushing in the morning and after having 
eaten breakfast. One of the easiest ways to prevent gum disease is to clean your teeth properly, 
so try these tricks for a healthier mouth.

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Kevin Young as our new Optometrist, who is already receiving high praise from the community.  More frames and lens options are now available thanks to our teaming up with Thundercloud Optical in Omaha, Nebraska.  Order placement and delivery can be expected to take 4-5 days now, down from the previous 10-15 days.

We are in the process of expanding the number of exam rooms at the Shawnee Clinic from four to eight.  We welcome Dr. John Jutting, MD to our medical staff, and will be bringing more health care providers on board to offer more services in the near future.

Our Shawnee Clinic Pharmacy is now filling prescriptions for all Native Americans, and is now open through the lunch hour.
