Bernard Reynolds and his wife have two kids, ages 4 and 5, and getting the entire family into the doctor's office can be challenging.
"It's hard," Reynolds said.
The Reynold's family has a clinic less than a half-mile from their home, offering wrap-around services like pediatrics, dental, behavioral health, women's services and more, all under one roof.
"They are friendly. They make you feel welcome when you come in," Reynolds said.
In partnership with Mort Elementary, right down the street, TFHC's location in Lutz offers financial services, an in-house pharmacy as well as a sliding payment scale based on income.
The clinic's goal is to make it easier for families with kids in school to get the care they need while staying out of local ER's and other clinics.
"A heavy emphasis on pediatrics because we are so close to Mort," said President and CEO of TFHC Sherry Hoback. "We want to make sure the kids are staying in school because we know when they stay in school, and moms and dads don't have to miss work, that we have better healthier outcomes."
TFHC is opening its 16th clinic later this summer in Tampa near Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Habana.
