Our mobile clinic, affectionately named “Big Cat,” is a 43′ diesel-powered mobile clinic with two exam rooms that are well-equipped to provide primary medical care. We also have an SUV that allows us to visit sites when taking the Big Cat is not an option.
PRIMARY and URGENT CARE
We can help with the management of routine medical problems, chronic diseases and other requests that are ordinarily addressed at a family practice physician's office. The main difference? Our office is on wheels!
Screenings for common medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
We recommend that anyone needing pap smears, mammography, and other women’s health services contact their local health department.
We can help with minor surgery such as cryotherapy, repair of minor lacerations, mole removals, drainage of minor abscesses, wound debridement, nail removal, etc.
Elective minor surgeries will be offered as time permits, and will need to be scheduled.
We strive to find medications for our patients at the lowest cost possible. This is accomplished in a variety of ways including medication samples, pharmaceutical company assistance programs and at times, we may be able to cover the cost of selected generic medications for a limited time for our established patients.
Empowering through education; providing information about other outreach programs and services.
Christian-based counseling is offered when appropriate.
Crossroads works hand-in-hand with numerous mental health organizations.
Labs such as finger-stick glucose, urinalysis, and urine pregnancy testing are available onboard. Limited outside labs are performed at Crossroads Medical Mission for uninsured patients and processed through Quest Labs.
We refer patients to community health centers, health departments, mental health agencies, social services, and to other providers when appropriate. Specialist care through Appalachian Highlands Care Network/Project Access is available for referral as well.
TREATING DENTAL INFECTIONS
While we do NOT perform dental services, we are able to address the medical side of dental needs, such as treating an infection. We are more than happy to direct you to charitable and sliding fee scale dental clinics available in the Tri-Cities area.
