Mission of Mercy in Texas offers a wide range of services for their patients, from medical treatment to diagnostic and prescription services.
Collaborative efforts enable our patients to receive greater comprehensive medical care, including free surgery, lab tests and x-rays at a network of hospitals, private providers and specialists.
Continuing Care and Medical Services
Mission of Mercy has set-up its clinics to resemble that of a private primary care physician and to provide a continuum of care, not just emergency or screening services. We are fully equipped to diagnose and treat conditions ranging from acute to chronic illnesses. Like a primary care physician, Mission of Mercy doctors can provide basic care or specialty needs, including:
- Skin conditions
One of the most expensive aspects of modern medicine is the high cost of prescription medications. The free ongoing prescriptions we provide our patients enable them to maintain their health, thus, allowing them to return to work, care for their family, or resume school. Mission of Mercy's formulary contains over 225 types of prescription medications. Our patients receive their free medications on premises immediately after clinic treatment. Currently, over 70% of our patients have some form of chronic illness. Upon diagnosing a chronic condition, we schedule regular appointments at the clinic so we can effectively monitor their condition and continue to provide necessary medication. It is common for us to see a chronically ill patient every few months. Additionally, we are the most aggressive organization of our kind when it comes to receiving free prescription medications through the pharmaceutical companies' indigent drug program.
*Mission of Mercy dispenses free prescription medications only to patients treated at our clinics. We are not a general dispensing pharmacy and therefore can not fill prescriptions written by a private doctor that is not a volunteer for Mission of Mercy.
Although patients must visit one of our network hospitals to receive free lab and x-ray services, we do offer many on-site diagnostic services, such as:
- Blood Pressure
- Visual Acuity Testing
- Finger Stick Blood Glucose and Cholesterol
- Urine Dipstick Analysis
- Microscopic Wet Prep
- Potassium Hydroxide Prep
- Urine Pregnancy Tests
- Fecal Occult Blood
- Oxygen Saturation
- Peak Respiratory Flow Rates
