does anyone know how to get in touch with whoever funds tug river clinic? they are turning people away because they cant afford to pay there bills. that cant be right. what about people that need there medicine? I thought you could be seen at tug river weather you have money or not. can someone clear this up for me, or give me a number i can call to see if this is legal? how is someone goin to get there medicines if they cant afford to go to the doctor?

Tug river clinic used to be a respectable place to receive medical help and so on. Those that have worked and paid tax dollars do get turned away, if you receive medicare, like from the welfare & ssi. you will be seen first. Gary WV used to be the place of choices to live and work, but as it is hard to believe, it also has went to the dogs.

Tug River is not a free clinic. You go to the Dr. you have to pay. But they do offer a sliding scale. Most low income people only have to pay $5.00. Tug River does alot for McDowell County. They give out school clothes and school supplies (even towels and wash rags) when school started. They just had a "free dental day" where anyone could come in and receive free dental care. i heard approx 75 people took advantage of that. I've seen them give away bicycles to the needy, Alot of times we get mad and have to thrash someone or someplace, but you're mistaken about
Tug River.

"Knowledge is power" !!! I support my county and Tug River.

yeah right. if the nurses like you, you get seen, otherwise you dont get to see anyone. and they say the candy lady aint giving candy any more, thats bull, she's still giving it.the lab is a bigger joke than the nurses. i wont be going back to that clinic, i'm goin to princeton where they have REAL doctors, not just nurses that THINK they are doctors
