The primary mission of our behavioral health consultants is to encourage patients along their individual journeys by promoting their strengths which help them to have better overall health outcomes.
For individuals who may need additional support (such as chronic mental health/substance abuse issues or a crisis), the behavioral health consultants will refer to our Behavioral Health department or to outside psychiatric services if needed.
Telehealth visits are a great option to meet with a Sam Rodgers provider from the comfort of your own home. However, not all medical needs can be addressed during a telehealth visit. We use a technology called Doxy.Me for our telehealth visits. For more information, please visit our full Telehealth (will hyperlink) page or call to discuss it with a member of our team.

Our priority is the health of you and your family. You are safe in our hands and your information is confidential.
We respect diverse values, beliefs, and feelings, and can provide care in multiple languages. Our staff, nurses, and doctors share the same diverse backgrounds as our patients and understand your life experience.
We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you apply or we will determine a cost based on your income and family size. We will never deny health care if a patient is unable to pay.
