On Wednesday March 6th, 2013 our first ever satellite site officially started seeing new patients. Located at Community Food & Outreach Center(CFOC), this new spot will provide the same full-comprehensive medical services that we do at Orange Blossom Family Health Center.
Carol, who is featured in the above video, came to CFOC Wednesday morning to buy some groceries for the week. When Dr. Lindsey approached her and told her she could be seen by a doctor that day she became so overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement that she started to cry.
It has been over a year since Carol last saw a healthcare provider or was able to access her medication, despite having multiple medical issues. She explained that there were too many financial obstacles and barriers in her life, so she had to put tending to her health on the back-burner.
She was such a grateful and sweet individual after being seen by our on-site Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner that she started to cry all over again just describing her day with us!
