Norman, Oklahoma (August 10, 2016) – The Absentee Shawnee Tribal Health System is excited to announce a new, convenient location for Optometry. Effective August 22, 2016, the ASTH’s Optometry Department will be located at the PlusCare Clinic (building), 15702 East State Highway 9, Norman, OK, across from the Little Axe Health Center. However, patients will still have the ability to call the same phone number 405.447.0300 to schedule appointments.
To celebrate this new expansion, Health Administration would like to invite you to the Grand Opening ceremony to be held on Tuesday, Sept. 20th at 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the new location. There will be an opportunity to tour the modernized facility and have some light refreshments.
This exciting move is all in effort to better serve patients and provide the best eye care experience our patients expect. Our commitment to you and the community has never been stronger; and this move allows for more space, additional exam rooms and a larger optical area with a great selection.
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.
