We are proud to bring to the Native American community a new era of healthcare not only in the physical sense - with new buildings and facilities and technology - but in the philosophical sense as well. We are committed to setting in motion a new era of healthcare; one that will redefine the standards by which we have both received care and cared for ourselves.

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.



Outstanding facilities; everyone very polite.


Good customer service

Very good customer service.
