Men’s health clinic, translation services available in Dayton
DAYTON – The Community Health Nursing clinics throughout Lyon County offer many conveniently located and very affordable services for men, women, and children. The Dayton Community Health Nursing clinic at 34 Lakes Blvd. hosts regular appointment hours, as well as walk-in clinics, men’s clinics, and translation services.
Men’s Clinic Services: Because men are sometimes more likely to seek health services when “men’s appointment hours” are set aside, Dayton Community Health has added a new Men’s Clinic each Wednesday from 3:30-5 p.m., by appointment. The new Men’s Clinic will include the Community Health office’s usual services, including immunizations, HIV testing, testicular exams, sexual health screenings and treatment (urine test only), smoking cessation assistance.
Expanded Translation Services: All clinics in Lyon offer a free phone translation service as well. Any non-English speaking client can request the free translation service at any Community Health Nursing clinic. The clear policy and procedure already in place makes this a simple process when scheduling an appointment. On Thursday, Dec. 2 between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., the Dayton clinic will also have a Spanish language interpreter in the office.
Walk In Clinics in Dayton: Walk-In Clinic hours at Dayton Community Health are on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. – please bring your shot records.
