My health is top priority. My needs are always meet. I feel I can express my feelings and be heard. I really appreciate it.


Love this place

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


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 goal of the Community Needs Assessment (C.N.A.) is to plan, prioritize, and budget for the healthcare delivery for the community and assess those needs on a periodic basis to ensure services and resources are concentrated where they should be. This is identified by the community serviced by the healthcare organization as necessary for improving the health of all community members via the evaluation of new technology, services, or products available to the community.

Help us help our community by taking a quick survey, online or at our upcoming Health Awareness Fair.
