"Building relationships...providing great care!"
ACCESS Family Care Medical & Dental Clinics came about from the vision of some forward thinking community leaders, in the mid 1990's.
This vision led to a small medical clinic in Pineville, Missouri and has grown to a mission carried out by more than 200 employees, in seven counties.
It is remarkable what a small group of people can do, when they try! As Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
