It is important for ALL women to have regular health checkups. If you or a loved one are without health insurance, please give our office a call to discuss your options. If you are over the age of 40, you might be eligible for a health checkup with our office using the state Every Woman Matters program. If you are under the age of 40, we might refer you to the local Family Planning Clinic. Both Dr. T and Kelley volunteer at Family Planning where you can receive health screening and contraceptive services at free or reduced rates.
