The Robert C. Byrd Clinic has added additional hours and health care providers in order to be more accessible to community members.
More evening appointments will be offered with walk-ins welcome until 6:30 p.m. on weekdays. Monday through Friday additional nurse practitioners will be able to serve patients’ medical needs, with at least one medical provider on call 24 hours a day.
Patients with general questions about the Robert C. Byrd Clinic can message the business directly through the clinic’s Facebook page; however, private medical issues will not be addressed due to HIPAA privacy concerns.
