Occasionally we have the ability to take a walk-in patient, when a no-show or cancellation occurs. Walk-in appointments can never be guaranteed, and when available they are given out on a first come, first served basis.
All services provided to Good Shepherd Clinic patients are free of cost.
Free medications are not guaranteed. We work to provide patients with low-cost medications in a variety of ways. We prescribe $4 generic prescriptions whenever possible, provide access to pharmaceutical prescription assistance programs (which allow eligible patients to receive their medications for little to no cost through the drug companies), and we also provide free doctor’s samples as available.
We have very limited specialty services and referral capability
