Dental Services

  • Appointments are scheduled only for patients with current certification who call (864) 512-7807.  Call the same phone number to cancel. The Free Clinic offers a few walk in slots most days. Due to limited dentist availability, if patient does not show (“no shows”) for an appointment, he/she must wait 12 months to schedule the next appointment.

Lab Services

  • All lab tests except for simple tests such as blood glucose checks and urine dipstick are done at AnMed Health Lab Services.
  • All new patients must get lab tests done for initial screening before being seen by a doctor. These routine tests are a part of the new patient process and are ordered upon acceptance as a new patient by the Intake Coordinator.

Pharmacy Services

  • Anderson Free Clinic runs a Pharmacy with a formulary that while limited, allows for treatment of most conditions presented by patients. The pharmacy does not carry any controlled substances.
  • The pharmacy only fills prescriptions for patients seen at the Free Clinic or by a Free Clinic referral doctor.
  • The Pharmacy will make all efforts to provide same day service for antibiotics and emergency situations, but due to the high volume of prescriptions received, routine prescriptions take two days to fill.
  • Patients pay a $2.00 dispensing fee per prescription to help offset the high cost of running the pharmacy. The pharmacy is managed by a paid pharmacist, and the clinic must also purchase a license to operate, vials, bags, and labels in order to fill prescriptions and buy medications which are not available through prescription assistance programs
