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.

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.

Melissa

An overall positive experience! Beautiful facility housed with friendly professional faces and care!
