Effective Monday April 27th our doors will be unlocked and we will be open again for Walk In Visits during regular operating hours at all 3 clinic locations. We have implemented extra precautions to ensure the safety and health of our patients and staff while in our facilities. We will continue to offer telemedicine for those that are at high risk or those that prefer this service. We want to thank the communities of Ringgold Flintstone and Lafayette for continuing to  bear with us thru the COVID health crisis. We will continue to exercise caution for the next several months but we believe we have reached a point where we can have some form of normalcy again in our offices. We look forward to seeing everyone! We have missed you!!

In an effort to keep our patients and staff protected from further spread of infection we feel it necessary to make the following temporary change. Effective Monday March 23rd, our front doors will remain locked at all locations and we will only be seeing patients in the office by appointment.  


We are strongly encouraging the use of telemedicine for all medical needs. You do not have to be a current patient. We can see new patients as well. 
Thru the use of your smart phone we are able to do a video visit and prescribe any needed medications. We can also arrange for any testing or labs to be done at our office. If testing is needed for COVID-19 we will do our best to help arrange for you. Telemedicine is simple and easy to use. By utilizing this service, you are protecting the health of yourself and others. This will also allow our employees to continue working and keep our small business going during this difficult health & financial crisis. 
If you have already tried telemedicine, please share your experience on social media, This will help others feel comfortable doing the same.
To schedule your visit, call any of our locations during normal business hours or you can click on the link below to be directed to our website where you can request a visit from there. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of Catoosa, Walker, and neighboring counties. We know many are sick, anxious and suffering at this time. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. We will get thru this together. ❤️

Fear not for I am with you, be not dismayed for I am your God, I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
