"Was surprised to see you guys offering suboxone treatment! I've been seeing Dr. Gray for about 2 years and have been suggesting that they integrate it into their services. I have been doing it for about a month now and I am definitely impressed by the results."- A.W. / Google / Oct 03, 2021
"I have been a patient at BHFS for about 6 months now and although their service was top notch, I wasn't seeing phenomenal improvement in myself until they started their suboxone treatment with me. I feel like I am finally the man I am supposed to be. Very grateful they added this addition to their clinic as not many clinics in my area provide this service."- J.H. / Google / Oct 02, 2021

What Can I Expect During My Wellness Consultation?
In one of our comfortable treatment rooms at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, one of our skilled physicians will meet with you for your wellness visit or physical. You may be visiting for your own peace of mind or to meet the required needs of your insurance. During this visit, we will assess your height, weight, blood pressure, blood glucose, blood cholesterol, and more during a biometric health screening. Based on your blood work and what we determine during your physical, we can help you determine a course of action on how to maintain your overall health. Follow-up visits can also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.
