We are located directly west of the Joplin Plaza across the street from Tropical Tan. Parking is available on the north side of the facility or in the back. Entrance to the facility is in the front.
We recognize that many of our patients are caregivers and understand that you may need to bring children with you to your appointment. Children can accompany you throughout the duration of your appointment. If you require a sensitive exam, such as a pelvic exam, you may decide to have your child or children in the exam room with you or in the waiting room. Children 9 years of age or older may wait in the waiting room unaccompanied during your exam. Children under 9 years old must be accompanied by another adult.
You can fill your birth control prescriptions at our health center instead of the pharmacy. during all open hours.
You can come to us for services that don’t require a medical exam. For example, birth control education and supplies; emergency contraception (AKA the morning after pill); pregnancy testing and counseling; STD testing, and testing and treatments for urinary tract infections.
Although the Joplin health center is open two days per week, our Call Center is available Monday-Saturday at 314-531-7526.
