Meet the MPFC coronavirus testing team!

Our lastest adapatation to the COVID-19 situation is the creation of a dedicated coronavirus testing team and clinical space. Call and speak with the testing team nurses who are well-versed in coronavirus test mandates and questions. After speaking with us, or following a virtual visit with a MPFC provider, visit our relocated drive-up testing site next to the new portable trailer to the left of our main entrance. This service is available only to established patients of MPFC. Looking to become an established patient and take advantage of this option? Call us and we can set up a telemedicine appointment and help you get started.

Mandates got you musing? At MPFC we have simplified the coronavirus testing process for our asymptomatic patients.

Our staff will collect and submit your sample to the laboratory with the fasted turn-around time and notify you of results as soon as they are available...so you can get back to living.COVID 19 test for web 356x220

Wear your mask to MPFC!

As part of our efforts to keep our community healthy and in keeping with CDC guidelines for healthcare facilities, we are requiring all adults to wear facemasks while at MPFC. Children over age 2 are also encouraged to wear a mask. Feel free to wear your own (we love the creativity and self-expression) or we will provide you with a mask when you arrive.

Childhood Vaccination Rates are Dropping in the COVID Era

Yikes! COVID-19 has led to a significant DROP in childhood vaccinations. Let's work together to avoid a resurgence of vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles and meningitis. We are here to answer questions about whether your child is due for vaccinations or a check-up. And our office is screening, masking and accommodating sick and well patients separately in accordance with State and CDC recommendations so we all stay healthy and strong.
