Location and Directions


For a small community hospital and clinic they are wonderful and caring. For the most part I have never had an issue with them and they are good to order any text or x rays in order to cover all the bases of a medical problems. Nick Lawyer is extremely caring and his bedside manor is the best. Now then I remember that we are all human so I don't look at unexpected issues to cause an ill report, I would recommend this facility to others and feel very blessed to have them in our community.

CFVH has lots of staff that still believe in the "CARE" element of healthcare, rather than "health management" which is what much of the world has become (Pretty hard to find a more caring provider than Nick Lawyer since he was mentioned earlier). Their providers and support staff are excellent as we've been regular customers with 3 boys and many trips to the ER and clinic. It's hilarious that someone would whine about waiting an hour to see a doctor in a non-emergency. That's the exception and not the rule in this place. - and try going to the hospitals in the big cities and see what kind of wait times we're talking for the sniffles. Seriously, if you're going to whine about the prices, then shop around (the next hospital is 80 miles away). Good luck. (a year ago)

I moved out of town 4yrs ago and I am still paying the bill's from that hospital. way to pricey for the services thay provide. Now I am paying a much smaller bill for way better services. (a year ago)

I waited an hour before my appointment. While waiting a walkin came in with a (bad Cold) and went on in ahead of me. I finally get in for my turn, Nick Lawyer comes in and asks how I am doing. I tell him about a couple prescriptions I need refilled and my knee has been hurting me. He then tell me that I have 4 things to discuss (includes new patient as 4th) and says he can only help me with 2 of the 4 and I would have to make another appointment for the others! I get talked into a wasted x-ray. In the end I had a $188 dollar bill for the visit and $160 for the x-ray. I went in for some cream and an inhaler and some advice like ice or wraps for my knee. P.S. prescription was sent to wrong store and incorrect amount and type. P.S.S. Was sent a new bill for $300.00 on just the visit minus what I paid already! They want more money..... (4 years ago)
