Social Services

  The Robert C. Byrd Clinic seeks to provide holistic care to their patients and families. We recognize that the patient is more than their illness. Patients and families may experience difficulties in their lives that impact their health, their ability to cope with their illness, and recovery. The Social Services Department at the Robert C. Byrd Clinic provides a wide variety of services to patients and families with the goal of supporting the patient to improve their psychosocial situation so they can focus on their health and wellbeing. Patients and families are often referred to the Social Worker by the medical provider but patients and family members can also contact the Social Worker to schedule an individual appointment separate from their appointment with their medical provider.
