Become a patient

General procedure to benefit from Shepherd’s Clinic services:

  • New patients entering Shepherd’s Clinic meet with a primary care provider to have a com­prehen­sive health eva­lua­tion, including a full history and physical as well as age-appropriate scree­nings and disease-specific diag­nos­tic testing.

  • Follow-up visits are arranged with a primary care provider and with specialists based on needs iden­ti­fied at the initial visit.

  • Providers work with patients to prioritize health needs and to help access services at the Clinic, at Joy Wellness Center, at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, or in the community-at-large.

  • We work hard to ensure that patients have access to needed medi­ca­tions via $4 programs in the community, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal company charity programs, or on-site samples.
