    I read your article. Being a clarkvillian and in need of some health care(as I do not have insurance) I was pretty impressed by what this health center had to offer. I need a GYN, I called the Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center to make an appointment. They told me they do not have a GYN. My friend called and told them she needed to see a GYN and my friend has an appt. tomorrow! I called them again and they Never answer the phone! I left them a message with my name, what I needed and my phone number and have yet to hear from them. I am going to go with my friend tomorrow and talk to them in person! But I have to say my impression right now is not too high of Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center. Is it because they see people with no insurance? I have looked every where including our local health dept. for some help with my medical condition to no avail!!!!
