What an amazing group of staff and doctors. I can’t complement enough about how awesome this place is and how caring they are. I would recommend this to anybody that has any kind of illness.


I got a covid test done here. Their sign in was a bit of a rig-a-ma-role but the nurse was very helpful and friendly. And altho the test wasn’t the most fun I’ve ever had it’s way better than getting it done at the health department! And it’s free! This is where I’ll go if I ever need another covid test done!


I’ve been using Axis since 2015 & really feel comfortable at the Pryor office. Over the years 99% of the staff has been excellent. ESPECIALLY the check-in staff at Pryor who are simply amazingly caring.
