    The Little Clinic board-certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants are fully qualified to diagnose and treat common illnesses and minor injuries, prescribe medications as needed, conduct tests and interpret laboratory results, provide wellness and preventative care, perform physical examinations and health screenings, and administer vaccinations and injections. Our providers have direct access to collaborating physician relationships that support the delivery of quality healthcare.

    Our patient care technicians are the “face to the patient” to greet and assist with registration, establish the patient record, obtain insurance information, and collect payments to maximize the patient flow through the clinic. Other duties include administrative tasks such as answering the phone, ensuring a clean and sanitary environment, assist in obtaining patient specimens, provide potential patients with scope of service information, and in some cases, assist with information and obtaining vitals.
