When you make an appointment, you will be booked with the medical professional who has the right skills to meet your needs. You have a team supporting you!
  • Does NFCHC have a walk-in clinic?

  • What if I miss an appointment?
    Clients are asked to make every effort to keep appointments and to be on time. If you cannot make an appointment, we request a minimum of 24 hours notice. By doing so, it opens appointment spots for others who need to see us.

    We ask that you give us one week's notice for any prescription refill. Please ask your pharmacy to fax the refill request to our office for the specific prescription you are going to run out of.
