Bethel Free Health Clinic, Inc.
Our Patients

Stories to share

Our patients are asked to complete a satisfaction survey so that we can continually be mindful of ways to better meet their needs.  These surveys are presented to our Board of Directors and to you on our Quality Assurance link. Patients (and their family members) and our volunteers are encouraged to share their experiences at our clinic.

When we receive stories, we’ll post here for you to read. 
On July 21, 2009, one of our patients completed the survey and left this message:
Here are some of the notes our patients left for us in 2013/2014
To whom it may concern,

I am unable to work due to many health issues and I am unable to get any insurance or Medicaid.  I have been well over a year without insulin for my diabetes and medication for my many other issues.
I have been very sick and desperate without medical care.  My best friend found Bethel Free Health Clinic on the internet.  I live in New Augusta, MS almost two hours away, yet they still welcomed me into this clinic.  They have literally saved my life!
Everyone here are volunteers and they all show the love of God!
I have been here three times in the last six weeks because Dr. Clippinger wanted to make sure he regulated all my meds to my needs.
Not once has anyone made me less then a worthy hungry being and that says alot!  So if not for this clinic I don't know what I would do.

I was a patient today at the Bethel Free Health Clinic. I've been experencing symptoms of hypertension. I had gotten sick at work and unfortunately had to visit the emergency room. The doctor advised me to get a follow up. I can here. I cannot afford insurance at my job and was unable to be seen at the Coastal Clinic. The staff/volunteers were great! Everyone was very plesant. Having this health care facility is a blessing to the community. Thank You!!

On December 31, 2008 (yes, we were open on New Year’s Eve) one of our patients sent the following email message:

subject: Gratitude

Today I made a visit to your clinic. I wanted to express how impressed I was with your facility.
The personnel you had working did an excellent job and I was in and out quicker than any doctors visit I have ever had.
The doctor was very thorough and answered all my questions, easing any concerns.
I would like to thank you guys one more time. Keep up the good work. God Bless you in the New Year to come.

To whom it may concern,

I have been being treated at the Bethel Free Health Clinic since possibly 2006.  This clinic is vital to the Gulf Coast area.  The people and volunteers that give their time are very appreciated and needed.  I believe if this clinic had to close it would be a great loss to the area. 
I also want to say thank you to all the awesome people that have assisted and been so kind and generous.

God Bless You All!
