Behavioral Care

Behavioral Care: Coping with the stress of hectic, demanding lives can sometimes be difficult. Our psychological frame of mind impacts our physical health just as physical conditions impact our emotions. HealthLinc’s behavioral health consultants (BHCs) are here to help you with:

  • Anxiety
  • Other conditions that may be impacting your health
  • Making healthy lifestyle choices, especially if you need to manage a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure


Our BHCs (Porter-Starke Services, Swanson Center, and Oaklawn) work in our clinic alongside the providers as part of your care team and help develop your health goals. Their services and any treatment you might receive are confidential, just like all your medical information.



Vision Care

Caring for your vision doesn’t begin and end with eyeglasses, contact lenses, and corneal modification surgeries like Lasik. There are many things you can do to maximize and protect the visual tools you currently have. An essential component of healthy vision is a regularly-scheduled comprehensive eye examination. Optometrists are specially trained to detect and treat problems and conditions of the eye and can help you get the most from your vision. HealthLinc provides the following:
