You don't have to be a patient to benefit from our services. We have a number of in-house services available for community members without referral. Many of our programs also provide community education through outreach.
To make an appointment for any of these services, call the front desk at 447-8900 and press 1. You can also call if you have questions about any of these services or would like to talk to us about community education, and our receptionist will direct you to the right person.
Have you gotten your flu shot yet? The flu shot is recommended for everyone over the age of six months, as early as October but anytime during the winter. Even if you're at a low risk of having serious complications from the flu, the vaccine can protect you from a really unpleasant illness, or make your symptoms milder. It also protects more vulnerable people around you from contracting the disease from you.
The flu vaccine is free for anyone with health insurance coverage, including Medicaid and Medicare. For those who are uninsured we offer the vaccine for just $20. You can make an appointment any day of the week, and it only takes about 5 minutes.
Family planning includes everything you do to control whether or not you get pregnant or get someone else pregnant. At a family planning visit, one of our nurse practitioners will meet with you to help you develop an informed approach to planning your family, and to provide you with the services to make this possible, including birth control, pregnancy testing, and vasectomy counseling and referral. Family planning visits also include general preventative health services.
If you are a patient, you can receive family planning services during a regular checkup, or schedule a separate appointment for family planning. Non-patients can receive family planning services here while continuing as a patient at a different office, if you prefer. Anyone under the age of 21 is welcome to visit the Teen Clinic for family planning services on Thursdays from 2:30 to 5:00.
Many family planning services are covered for free with any health insurance, including Medicaid. If you are uninsured or have a high deductible, you can use our sliding fee scale to pay for an appointment and talk with the provider you see about options to pay for birth control and other services.
HIV and STD screening
We can provide HIV and STD screening as part of your regular checkup, or you can schedule a separate appointment for a screening, whether or not you are a patient. Anyone under the age of 21 can also get screenings at Teen Clinic on Thursdays from 2:30-4:30 by appointment or walk-in. Screening includes treatment for sexually transmitted diseases as well as pre-test and post-test HIV counseling.
HIV and STD screening are covered for free through most health insurance. For those who are uninsured, we'll help you get the services you need regardless of ability to pay.
Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals
People with commercial motor vehicle licenses are required to pass a DOT physical every two years. Our DOT physicals include eyesight checks, blood pressure, and other health indicators that might affect your ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. If you don't pass, we'll work with you to develop a plan to get you back in business. Our DOT physicals cost $125.
Our food pantry is open to the entire community on a walk-in basis Monday – Friday, 9 to 4. You can also ask to use the food pantry during any appointment.

We have a federally-funded Navigator to help New Hampshire residents find and enroll in affordable health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace or the New Hampshire Health Protection Program (NHHPP), also known as expanded Medicaid.
