Services

His Hands Free Clinic offers a wide variety of services designed to best fit the needs of our community. All services are by appointment.

Medical

Primary care: We have licensed and experienced healthcare professionals who can treat you as a primary care doctor. If you need to see a specialist, we can provide you with a referral. A visit to the medical clinic shouldn't cost anything. If a lab or x-ray is ordered, Mercy Medical Center and Unity Point will assess your ability to pay for services. If a medication is prescribed and you cannot afford the cost, His Hands will cover one month of that medication.

Chiropractic

Our licensed chiropractors are available to diagnose and treat disorders of the spine and musculoskeletal system. A visit to a chiropractor costs nothing. Our chiropractors volunteer with us as their schedules permit at various times throughout the month.

Dental

Please call His Hands to be placed on the dental waiting list. Our dental coordinator works on Tuesday and Wednesday and will schedule patients according to their level of need.

Please understand that we experienced a very high volume of dental calls. Currently, the wait can be up to 2 months. We care about your situation and will schedule you as soon as we can.

Prescription assistance

His Hands has a medication room. Whenever possible, we try to fill a prescription out of our current inventory or to write prescriptions for medications that are on the $4 generic lists. For ongoing prescriptions needs, we will refer you to available programs.

Spiritual support

Prayer is not required for our patients to receive care, but we offer it freely. Our prayer support volunteers are available to listen to you and pray with you. We do not judge, lecture or even discuss a patient's religious background. We are simply here to care about you and to share in your journey.

Women's Health

Our licensed and experienced physicians provide pap smears and breast exams. Mammograms are referred out to local hospitals and the costs are most often fully covered. If a lab or x-ray is ordered, the Mercy Medical Center and Unity Point will assess your ability to pay for services. If a medication is prescribed and you cannot afford the cost, His Hands will cover one month of that medication.

Durable Medical Equipment

His Hands receives gently used medical equipment from all over the community: hospitals, doctor's offices, and community members. If you need equipment, please call and see if we have what you need. If you would like to donate medical equipment please drop if off during clinic hours.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapist volunteers once a week. Please call for an appointment.

Patient Advocate
Social work services

Our Patient Advocate works whenever a medical clinic is scheduled. Please call to make an appointment, if possible. Walk-ins can be accommodated most days. Our Patient Advocate assists patients to find a primary care doctor, sign up for insurance and provide referrals to services including, food, clothing, shelter, counseling and other basic needs.

Mental Health

Our licensed and experienced mental health provider is available once a month. Typically appointments fill up very quickly. We will do our very best to accommodate needs based on the providers availability. We refer to community resources as much as possible

Optical

Optical services are provided off site at a licensed and experienced optometrist's office. Patients need make an appointment to see a medical doctor first and then they will be referred to see an optometrist.

About your visit

You don’t need to bring anything to your visit, but there are a few things you can do to make your visits efficient and productive:

  1. Make an appointment. Walk-ins to the clinic are not turned away, if there is room in the schedule. Priority is given to our patients with appointments.
  2. Keep your appointment. If you find that you have a conflict, call us AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so that we can schedule another patient. Please do not miss your appointment without calling us.
  3. Write down any symptoms or questions ahead of time. It is easy to forget things when you are at the doctors office.
  4. New patients come early. We have our new patients fill out a health history form that can take some time. Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes early to complete this form.
