The Presbyterian Medical Care Mission is a family clinic, and our two full-time physicians serve as general practitioners for our patients. Our services are available to people who do not have private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare.
After our patients have met with our program director and have qualified for our services based on household income level, they receive an appointment to see one of the physicians. From that point on, the patients will see the same physician each time they make an appointment. This allows for a continuity of care and for a strong patient-physician relationship to form. Our two physicians and three medical assistants see 40-50 patients each day.
Those interested in learning more about becoming a medical patient are welcome to call (325) 672-5601 to make an appointment with our program director.
Qualifying patients may be able to participate in our prescription program, which enables our patients to obtain a three-month supply of some medications for $3 per prescription. The Mission works with more than 15 pharmaceutical companies to fill more than 400 prescriptions for our patients each month. The fee covers shipping and handling.
Our Dental Clinic employs a full-time dentist and three dental assistants who treat about 20 patients each day. Services offered include extractions and fillings. The dental clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m., Closed Friday. The qualifying process at the Dental Clinic is separate from that at the Medical Clinic, so those interested in becoming a dental patient are encouraged to call (325) 677-3455 for more information or to come to the Dental Clinic from 2:30 to 4 p.m. on Thursdays with proof of income to qualify.
The Director of Spiritual Wellness is ready to receive prayer requests, pray with patients, and serve as a liaison between patients and local churches and other organizations. To learn more about this service or to speak with the Director of Spiritual Wellness, please call (325) 676-3104, Ext. 113.
