Testimonials

"[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."

Boyd S.

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!

Sonja

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.

OK Native Impact

One of the largest and most impactful contributions by 38 federally recognized tribes has been in health care. Oklahoma tribes make millions in payments to Oklahoma health care entities every year when a tribal citizen is referred to private health care providers. In addition, many tribes own and operate hospitals and health centers across the state that serve both Native Americans and non-Native American community members. Check out some incredible facts of what our tribal impacts to the state truly are! Click on the link below.
