All visits will be conducted by appointment only so that ample time is taken between appointments for cleaning and disinfecting. Patients are asked to bring and wear masks for their visits. To accommodate our patients’ needs, we will continue to do tele-health visits. These are also scheduled visits. As of June 30, all clinic services such as mental health counseling, diabetic education, hearing screenings, have resumed vision clinics.
Due to the backlog of patients in our volunteer dental provider’s private practice, dental services have resumed, and we are working hard to schedule patients as soon as appointments are available.
Since 2018, St. Martin’s Healthcare has provided services to care for our patient's minds, bodies, and souls. Did you know that 20% of the population lives with a mental health illness?
We offer support for Panic, Fear, Depression, Anxiety, Abusive Relationships, Stressful Situations, and Lack of Coping Skills.
Mental Health Counseling focuses on using preventative measures and corrective measures to impact a person's life. That is to say, keeping the wires of the mind from crossing in the first place and trying to untangle them if they do. Based on patient needs, we have incorporated mental health counseling as a signature service at our clinic.
At each clinic visit, our patients are screened for depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Based on these scores and their assessment by the practitioner, meeting with our on-site volunteer counselor is a welcomed solution. Each visit is patient-centered based on their needs and situation. Medication can help, however, the optimal treatment plan is in combination with counseling. We have the patient success stories which validate this.
