If i see one i usually end up seeing the whole family shortly after"the monon health clinic sees people with and without health insurance.antoinette vi-yay helps in these cases.she says access to quality health care is key."families come walking here so i feel like to have to drive 45 minutes or more to get health care, that's time out of work time out of school and we have the school right next door.
That saves families so much time and money"just in the past year they have seen more patients from all over the surrounding area.and this is just the beginning."this is a positive, positive thing for the community."
