"We never turn anyone away," nurse manager Mary Dierdorff said. "We see anyone who walks in the door and accommodate any situation."
The clinic doesn't close for lunch, and shuts its doors only on Christmas and Thanksgiving.
The services are broad, she adds, offering family care from newborns to geriatrics. Patients can get X-rays, lab work, minor surgeries and laceration repairs, among other basic wellness checks.
For walk-ins or by appointment, it offers primary and urgent care, and accepts Medicaid and Medicare patients.
And Dierdorff, who has worked for the group for 26 years, can't say enough good things about the group's six physicians. The staff has a high retention rate, she said, and they've all developed longtime and close relationships with patients over multiple generations.
"We see the whole family," she said.
