ABOUT US

 

ACCESS Family Care Medical & Dental Clinics serve southwest Missouri residents with high quality primary medical and general dentistry care.  We have behavioral health and pharmacy services, for our patients.  One of our most popular and utilized areas of service is obstetrics and gynecological care.  Our OB / GYN care allows us to provide you with medical care, at the most important moment of your family's life!  We have hospital privileges; which allows us to give care from the moment you learn you're having a child and up to delivery!  We provide treatments for a wide variety of chronic diseases, including Diabetes.

On the Dental side, we do most all types of general dentistry!

OUR HISTORY

ACCESS Family Care Medical & Dental Clinics came about from the vision of some forward thinking community leaders, in the mid 1990's.

 

This vision led to a small medical clinic in Pineville, Missouri and has grown to a mission carried out by more than 200 employees, in seven counties.

 

It is remarkable what a small group of people can do, when they try!  As Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
