FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
MAY I WALK-IN FOR A VISIT?
Unfortunately, no. Our clinic is staffed by volunteers. They let us know when they are available and we schedule appointments in those time slots. Once you qualify as a patient, we would be happy to schedule an appointment for you.
I CAN'T MAKE IT TO MY SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Please contact us as soon as possible if you know you will not be able to come for an appointment. This allows us to schedule another patient, who needs care, with our volunteers. If you miss 3 appointments, without canceling them at least 24 hours ahead of time, within a 12 month period, you will be dismissed from the clinic program for one year. At that time former patients can be re-screened for clinic services.
HOW DO REFERRALS TO OTHER DOCTORS WORK?
We work with several volunteer specialist in the community. These providers volunteer their time and resources as their schedules allow. Patients are referred on a case-by-case basis.
DOES CROSSROADS CARE FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT OR PRESCRIBE NARCOTICS?
We do not. We realize that we have patients living with pain and we will do our best to connect patients, who have verified diagnoses, to resources in the community who might be able to help but it is a specialty that is outside the scope of this clinic's practice.
Patient assistance programs (PAP) are programs set up by pharmaceutical companies that offer free medicines to individuals who are unable to pay for their medication.
Eligibility varies program by program based on your household income and assets.
