I came to Families First because I had a horrendous toothache. The dentist took care of me right away. I qualified for the sliding scale. I have been cared for very well for maybe 5 or 6 years now and making an appointment is quick and easy. No stress to see my doctor, in fact I look forward to appointments and getting better. –Richard Young
