The Clinic has a Medical Director, Clinic Director, Registered Pharmacist, RNs, and other support staff as needed.

An RN will complete a nursing assessment. The assessment may include a review of your medical history and current medications. The nurse may take blood pressure
and blood glucose levels. After discussion of presenting clinical issues, the patient will be escorted to the pharmacy for medication refill, new prescriptions or wait to be seen by the doctor.
The patient may receive medication from our pharmacy supply. For more costly medications,
application may be made to a “Patient Assistance Program,” directly from the pharmaceutical company. After qualifying for these plans, the medications are shipped to the clinic and then dispensed to the patient at no cost. The doctor may prescribe a new medication or renew prescriptions as needed.
The clinic may refer patients that need lab work to Promedica as needed. There is no cost to the patient.
The Clinic can refer the patient for X-rays but Promedica provides the x-ray, but there may be charges for the radiologist’s fee.
The Clinic has a representative from Pines Behavioral from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
The representative can answer question about anxiety or other mental health issues.
They may also be able to refer the patient to outside agencies. Substance Use issues
can be addressed with the Pines representative.
Our Clinic funding has been an ongoing partnership with state and local stakeholders.

Our clinic writes grants to receive needed money from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (12 yrs.), Branch County United Way (16 yrs.) Branch County Foundation (10 yrs.), State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (10 yrs.) and Branch County Swap Meet and Car Show (5 yrs.).
We appreciate all the donations and memorials that have been received since 2002.
