Our Clinic Services
Examination is provided to our patients by physicians, residents, and medical students who volunteer their time at Manos Juntas Clinic. The examination consists of check-ups and management of chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Our physicians treat arthritis, urinary infections, and heart diseases among others. The Manos Juntas Clinic welcomes all who present in need of healthcare service.
Thanks to the Diagnostic Laboratory of Oklahoma (DLO) we are able to provide laboratory testing to our patients. Since 2006, DLO has been donating their services to our Manos Juntas Clinic. This contribution has been of incredible help and one of our most important inputs. It allows us to have better control of chronic illnesses. It has enabled us to monitor efficiently the status of diabetic and lipid management. With the lab test reports we have been able to prescribe medications that must be monitored for side effects.
The Manos Juntas Pharmacy is stocked with generic medications needed for chronic disease management. The medicines are purchased wholesale and provided in adequate quantity. Pharmacists and volunteer students distribute the medicines to our patients and maintain adequate inventory on just-in-time basis. We have an electronic medical record that serves as a prescription and inventory ordering tool.
The Manos Juntas Clinic provides high quality healthcare free of charge to needed individuals, but our resources are limited. Our clinic works in collaboration with other free clinics and medicine schools in the region for specialty referrals when needed. Depending on the diagnosis and proven limited resources of our patients, we make arrangements with specialized physicians.
