primary care program

The primary care program provides access to healthcare for acute illness, chronic disease management and preventive care services. 

We provide medical visits with a doctor or mid level provider at minimal cost to the patient and the community. 


For more information contact the clinic Office Manager at info@christclinickaty.org

pharmacy and medication assistance

Medication assistance is a critical piece of quality care for those who are uninsured. A patient who received a diagnosis and treatment plan needs to have equivalent access to necessary medication . The pharmacy and medication assistance program provides access to medications at low or no cost to patients through a multifaceted approach.

on site labs

The on-site lab reduces patient barriers (such as transportation, high cost and additional time off work) from

interfering with precise, accurate and comprehensive care. Patients are asked to cover the cost of their labs.
