Synergy Health can coordinate care on your behalf with any appropriate consultant.
If you are like most, though, you don't want to drive one or two hours for specialty services if you don't have to.
There are several full time specialty clinics locally including gastroenterology, urology, orthopedics, and cardiology.
There are other specialists that are more scarce, available through weekly clinics locally or through telemedicine. We are actively working to bring more support services to our community.
Read below to learn more about services available in our community.
