People often put off going to the doctor when they lack health insurance. Unfortunately, waiting may mean the difference between a small problem and a life-threatening condition.
A Real Life Story:
A 33-year-old St. Lucie County woman was a frequent patient at a local hospital emergency room. Every few months this mother would go to a local Emergency Room with extremely high blood pressure – headaches and nausea – about to pass out! Her emergency room treatments were very expensive and waiting so long for treatment is dangerous.
Now, thanks to the HANDS Clinic this single parent has a medical home to address her chronic disease and she receives her medication in a timely manner. Today, she is able to care for her children and live a healthy, productive life.
