The centers are comprehensive, multi-specialty primary care facilities offering affordable, accessible, high-quality medical and dental care. Our board-certified or board-eligible professional providers include pediatricians, internal medicine specialists, an obstetrics and gynecology physician who is a Fellow in the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, nurse practitioners, nurse mid-wives, and dentists.

The Health Centers also provide cutting-edge disease management and wellness promotion services to our patients. These services are an integral part of our approach to providing high-quality clinical care. They are an essential part of our interactions with the communities and neighborhoods that surround the Southside and Dodson Avenue locations.

Access to emergency care hospitalization or other specialized services is provided through our affiliation with the Erlanger Health System. We provide health care regardless of the patient's ability to pay.

Please call in advance to schedule an appointment. If you or a member of your family has an immediate health problem, please call early in the day to talk with a nurse. An appointment will be scheduled as soon as possible. Only a limited number of walk-in patients can be seen. If you have an emergency after regular clinic hours, call the Health Center's number. The answering service will take your call and forward it to the doctor on call. Referrals for emergency care and specialty care will be made as needed.
