Latest Reviews, Comments, Questions for Toksook Bay Sub-Regional ClinicComment from Martha Oprisko:
I have been receiving my basic health care services from Tulip Tree since 2006 when I had no health insurance & I continued to use their services after I did have health care coverage. The staff is warm, friendly, & caring. It is sometimes hard to get in as quickly as hoped; but, they do try their best if you have a medical condition that is not severe enough for a visit to the ER. The only true disadvantage is they are not open on Fridays.
[How-ever, Deaconess has just opened a 7 days a week 8 am to 8 pm Walk In Clinic - not Urgent Care - that provides service to whoever choses to use them. If special tests are needed, it might be a better option to use the ER since they do not have X-Ray & other diagnositic abilities.]
Except for 1 instance, I am pleased with the care I've received.
The important thing to remember is - no matter where you go to receive care - it is your responsibility to make a list of your concerns, questions you would like answered, etc. because a Provider can only give a patient the best possible care if they are given input from the patient.
If you don't feel you are receiving the best possible care or the Provider is not or has not recognized an issue you have brought up; then, make sure you assert yourself by repeating or bringing up the matter.
If you are passive, then the Provider will do the best they can under the circumstances.
So speak up whenever you feel you haven't been heard or you don't understand what you've been told.
Providers are only human & they can't read your mind. Also, don't assume a message has been relayed especially if the subject isn't brought up by the person you are seeing. Again, the staff is also human & when things get busy/hectic things can fall through the cracks.
I highly recommend Tulip Tree.
