HOW AM I CHARGED?

It is important to note that it currently costs The Clinic approximately $132 per patient visit, but we have no set fees.  However, we believe that patients should take some responsibility for the cost of their medical care.  Therefore, our patients are asked to contribute to the extent that they find affordable with the understanding that their contributions help insure that The Clinic remains accessible to them and to the community at large.

All we ask is that a relationship, built upon mutual respect, be observed as we see to your needs and those of your loved ones, and that you contribute as generously as you are able.  If you are truly unable to afford anything at all, your care is free and will be administered with dignity and respect.

WHAT DO YOU OFFER?

The Clinic offers quality medical care to those with no medical insurance.  This is provided by physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses in an atmosphere of caring and respect for each person and family.  We do not accept Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance.

MUST I RESIDE IN PHOENIXVILLE?

No!  However we do have geographical boundaries within which a patient must reside in order to be treated.

Our service area is approximately a 10-mile radius surrounding Phoenixville and it comprises 34 townships/municipalities in Chester and Montgomery Counties. Examples are: Schwenksville to the North; King of Prussia to the East; Malvern/Paoli to the South; and Exton/Eagle to the West. If you are in doubt whether you are in our service area, please call The Clinic to confirm your eligibility.

WHAT KINDS OF MEDICAL CARE CAN I RECEIVE?

Just about anything you would find in a family practice office and more!

  • Routine physical exams for adults and children.
  • Treatment of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
