Primary Medical Care is the most visible and vital of all the healthcare services provided by Mercy Medicine Free Clinic. It consists of addressing many of the more prevalent health conditions that prevail throughout our region, such as diabetes and hypertension. We are fortunate to have a number of dedicated paid staff such as our nurse practitioners along with an outstanding group of volunteer physicians, a podiatrist, and a dietitian. Specialist care referrals are made as appropriate, usually with a patient copay.
The many indigent and working poor patients who come to us for dental services are unable to afford basic dental care. Dental care at the clinic consists primarily of treatment for pain and infection, including necessary extractions, and restorations (fillings). Dental care at Mercy Medicine Free Clinic is provided by volunteer dentists from our community. If indicated, we can help patients with the cost of dentures and partials.
In addition to its many other functions, the Mercy Medicine Free Clinic also features an on-site non-dispensing pharmacy. Also, the majority of the medications provided to our patients are obtained through The Medicine Mart, a local retail pharmacy, and through Welvista which is another nonprofit organization. All prescribed medications are free to our patients. The clinic does not have and does not dispense any narcotics.
Specialty on-site services now offered for our patients include podiatry, pain management, physical therapy, and nutrition counseling all offered by volunteer providers. Psychological counseling is provided by Highway to Hope through Pee Dee Mental Health.

This includes both over-the-counter and prescription varieties, even if they are unopened and unused. Also, we cannot take any prescription medical devices such as CPAP machines.
If you need to dispose of expired or unused medications, you can call your local CVS or Walgreens Pharmacy and they will direct you to their nearest drop off location.
Even though we can no longer accept these items, we greatly appreciate your generous spirit and thoughtfulness.
We can, however, still accept non-prescription medical devices such as canes and walkers. Please be sure to call the clinic before coming by with those items if possible.
