Extended clinical hours

Our current space currently poses more than a few logistical and space challenges for our clinic. Below lists our current challenges where we currently reside:

Logistical Challenges

  • Switching chiropractic exams rooms into medical exam rooms twice a week

  • Our sub-lease is only available twice a week

exam room challenges

  • The chiropractic offices are carpeted which limits the level of urgent care that we can provide - nothing invasive can happen.

office and community space challenges

  • The Medical Director and Executive Director do not have offices. Currently our Executive Director works out of the attic.

  • Additionally, we do not have space to host community education and wellness workshops

LABORATORY challenges

  • Our lack of a full lab often makes things difficult when it comes to urgent care. We currently have a sink with some counter space and small refrigerator to store vaccines.

  • Treatment decisions in an office environment is often most accurate when certain labs are available (which include Point-of-Care labs such as hemoglobin, electrolytes, influenza, beta strep, glucose, pregnancy, etc.). An inability to get that kind of information on a timely basis is what often drives a referral to the ER—definitely something we want to avoid, if possible.

All of these challenges will be addressed in our impending move. We have 4 dedicated medical exam rooms with non-carpeted floors, a dedicated lab space, office space for our directors, and community space for our patients and volunteers.
