Can you please give a reminder on what medical access we have here on the Key Peninsula?

  • Yes! We currently have two clinics, a nurse practitioner, a monthly free clinic, a dentist, a chiropractor, a naturopath, and a pharmacy/drug store.
  • The two clinics are similar in that they are both federally funded clinics, meaning they are required to take Medicare but also take other insurances and have sliding scales based on income levels.
