It's National Patient Recognition Week

This week is known as National Patient Recognition week. Central Ozarks Medical Center is dedicated to offering quality healthcare that works best for YOUR financial situation. In honor of this special week, our health clinics at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to point out a few things we try to do in order to accomplish patient satisfaction.

Our Patients Matter! Check out what we do in order to try and lead the way to healthier communities.

1. We accept patients with and without insurance and offer a sliding fee scale based on income and family size.

Your health shouldn't be dictated by whether or not you have insurance. Here's how our sliding fee discount program works:

Central Ozarks Medical Center offers a discounted fee to patients based on their household size and household income. The Sliding Fee Program includes fees for medical, dental and behavioral health services. 

To determine eligibility, COMC will need to ask you to bring in personal financial information.  Any information we ask you for will be strictly confidential.  None of your personal information, financial or medical, can be released without your written consent.  The information we are asking for is used solely to determine household size and household income.  Applications are effective for a one-year period.  Sliding Fee Discount Program participants must complete an application annually Discount Program applications must be completed, signed and approved prior to services being provided. All participants are asked to notify COMC of income changes as soon as possible after the change occurs.

2. We have many locations/services across the Lake of the Ozarks area in order to try and reach more people with different illnesses.

Our mission is to increase access to comprehensive primary and preventative health care and to improve the healthcare status of underserved and vulnerable populations in Camden, Laclede, Miller and Pulaski Counties. We have 5 health clinics throughout Richland, Camdenton and Osage Beach. For more information on our different locations, visit

3. We have offered FREE flu fairs in the past.

The flu has been spreading and we have offered flu fairs in the past to try and give people the chance at a FREE flu shot. Last year, we offered 3 free flu fairs in October, which took place in Camdenton, Osage Beach, and Richland.

4. Our belief is that it is not just what we do here at Central Ozarks Medical Center, but how we do it that makes all the difference.

Don't just take our word for it, see below for what some of our patients have said.

We Appreciate Our Patients & The Kind Feedback We Get From Them

"My daughter has a severe food allergy. The Drs. Warren are great when dealing with her and her issues. They are compassionate and treat you like family. Dr. Warren part 1 (Barton) always asks what we are reading currently as he knows that is what we do. Dr. Warren revisited (Ashley) is eager to learn and doesn't claim to know all. I would never replace them and fight with my insurance when they try."

"I have been treated very well by doctors, nurses and all the staff here. I like having a Lab in the facility so there is no need to make another appointment elsewhere."

"I've used COMC for more than 25 years for health care services. I've never had a bad experience or had any dissatisfaction with their care."

"I only use doctor Warren not sure what I'll do when he retires hopefully not for many many years. But he makes me feel comfortable and having crazy blood pressure and fibromyalgia I love that he knows my case and doesn't try and pass me off. We work together on this to try and give me the best life medically I can have. He is amazing. I love how he works with me with everything. We are a team and that's how a doctor patient relationship should be. Dr. Warren is the best."
