On-site clinical services are delivered by a passionate team of Clinical Companions. All Clinical Companions are certified and authorized independent partnering clinicians from the community, but they are further versed in delivering culturally-sensitive, empathetic, and humanistic care at AMPHS. Your Clinical Companion may be a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, registered nurse, pharmacist, emergency medical services provider, or AMPHS community health worker based on your unique needs. Clinical Services are offered in the following departments:
General Primary Care / Preventive Health
Routine wellness and physical exam followed by counseling on lifestyle choices, social behaviors, nutrition, exercise, medication compliance, and other general health topics.
Comprehensive screenings including body-mass index and/or waist circumference; auscultations of the heart; assessing heart rate and rhythm; eletrocardiograms; and associated laboratory services.
Auscultations of the heart; assessing respiratory rate and rhythm, oxygen saturation, spirometry, and lung capacity.

Services marked with an asterisk (*) are offered in conjunction with our partner organizations rather than our independent partnering licensed individuals who offer all other listed clinical services. While AMPHS performs health screenings, other follow up clinical services are offered not by AMPHS directly but by our independent professionals who practice on site at AMPHS.
To prepare for your Clinical Services appointment, please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment time. In most cases, it is fine to eat and drink on the morning of your appointment, but for the most accurate screening results, try not to eat or drink anything an hour before your appointment. Also refrain from engaging in strenuous and labor-intensive activity within two hours prior to your appointment. Wear comfortable clothing - you may be asked to remove bulky and thick garments. Please make sure to complete all the forms and information requests if we have sent them to you.
When you come in, you will be greeted in your language of choice by a Health Advocate who will introduce you to AMPHS and what to expect for your visit. Your Health Advocate will also accompany you throughout your entire visit and serve as your language interpreter if needed. You will first complete some paperwork and take a picture with us for your medical records (this is only stored in our secure system for us to remember who you are to better serve you next time). Please let your Health Advocate know if you have any concerns immediately.
During your appointment with your Clinical Companion, you may be asked to perform a variety of tasks like sitting down, standing up, and laying down. You may also have a small sample of blood taken from your finger tip and have your mouth swabbed.
