How do SMC patients receive medications?IMG 0118

Most patients qualify for Welvista, a non-profit organization that provides many brand name pharmaceutical drugs for low-income, uninsured patients. If you do not qualify for Welvista, Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) are often available for patients who may need a drug not available from other sources.

What happens if I need to see a specialist?

Outside referrals are always a last resort and are scheduled by the office manager. In some cases, SMC patients may be referred to Tidelands Community Care Network (TCCN) for assistance with specialty care. TCCN promotes medical-home relationships that lead to improved access to health management for under and uninsured patients.

How do I receive a TB test?

TB tests are only done on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because patients must return to the clinic for a follow up reading after 48 hours. Tests are free, however, we do ask for a $10 donation.

If you are an established patient, you do not need to have an appointment. If you have never been seen at SMC, you must first be seen by a provider and an appointment is required.

Is there a food pantry at SMC?

The food pantry is operated by local churches, not Smith Medical Clinic. Food Pantry hours are from 9:00 am - noon, Monday through Friday.
