Water Street Health Services provides a free medical clinic designed for local men and women who both meet income requirements and don’t already have a healthcare home. Our free medical clinic’s staff is here to help meet medical needs by offering everything provided at a local doctor’s office.
We will help you take all the steps you need to get your health back on track, from regular check-ups to free medication and even onsite lab testing. All patients are evaluated based on income, insurance, and needs, before a personalized medical plan is created to help you live your healthiest life!
More than anything we aim to be a relational, top-notch medical facility that puts the individual patient first. That means giving you as much time as you need with a doctor. It’s important to us that you feel comfortable and take plenty of time to discuss your medical history with a doctor so we can best support you.
Our aim is that each patient feels fully cared for and treated as an individual. We never want you to feel like just another number or just another patient at our free medical clinic, but rather a vital member of our Water Street community.
