We stay up to date on the most current evidence based guidelines and research in order to provide you with high quality and cost-effective care- avoiding unnecessary testing, treatments, and referrals. Multiple studies have shown that much of what is done in modern American medicine is unnecessary and offers little to no benefit to the patient. We hope to try to break that trend, and be as much of a “one stop shop” for your health care needs as we are able to.

FCHC partners with multiple healthcare providers in the area to provide affordable and Christian-centric counseling for our patients, both insured and uninsured. We are working to have a counselor volunteer with us one day a week. We are also pursuing grants to fund at least part time mental health services at FCHC. Please pray that God will allow us to expand our services to provide more comprehensive care to you!
The United States is currently suffering from an epidemic of patients dying and having adverse effects from using controlled substances such as narcotic pain medications and certain anxiety medications. Many of those who suffer the ill effects of these medications are not abusing them, but taking them as prescribed. Although there are times when a short-term prescription for a controlled substance is necessary and helpful, we do our best to not prescribe these medications in keeping with the old adage “First, do no harm.” Increasingly the research shows that long term use of these medications is not beneficial for most who take them, and often do more harm than good, and for this reason as a general rule we will not provide recurrent prescriptions of controlled substances at FCHC.
