Some frequently asked questions are answered below;
Q: How long will I have to wait to be examined?
A: This depends upon the number of patients that day and the number of volunteers available.
We try to spend as much time as possible providing primary health care. On some days a need
for patience is needed as considerable time may be required to process everyone. Quality
medical service is a desire of our staff. That takes a little more time.
Q: How many Doctors are volunteering to work at the clinic?
A: There are about 40 doctors involved at the clinic. Many are retired, but there are a number of doctors who are still actively practicing in the local community.
Q: Do I need to see a CHFC doctor to participate in the Drug Assistance Program.
A: Yes. To sign up for the Drug Assistance Program, a patient must see a CHFC doctor and the desired Rx drugs must be approved by that doctor. Note: Even if an outside doctor has already prescribed a medication for you, the CHFC doctor must still see you before any drugs may be
ordered by the Drug Assistance Program.
Q: Who runs the dental program?
A: There are a number of local dentists who have agreed to volunteer their time at the clinic.
A part time dental assistant is scheduling dental appointments.
