Staff of Reproductive Health Clinic

Registered Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses provide professional care to the citizens of Linn County at our two clinics in Albany and Lebanon. Additionally, we have the support of bilingual Medical Assistants and Spanish translators available on most days in our clinics.

Confidentiality

All of our services are confidential. According to state law, reproductive health services provided to teens may be obtained without the specific consent of a minors parent. We do, however, encourage communication with parents on such an important subject. No information about you will be released without your written permission.

Birth Control and Female Examinations

The clinical staff will assess your medical history and assist you in your decision regarding the best birth control method for you. We provide a wide variety of birth control methods in our clinic. We also have available emergency contraception or the “morning after pill” in each of our clinics. Our Nurse Practitioners complete annual physical exams and evaluate the health of our female clients while promoting prevention and healthy living. Nurse Practitioners make referrals to other medical providers for follow-up care on identified health concerns. Oregon Contraceptive Care (CCare) is a program that offers birth control methods for women and men free of cost or at a discounted price.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Both men and women can be tested at our clinics for STDs. In most cases, women will have a vaginal culture taken for evaluation. Men can be tested for STDs using a urine testing method. If results show that you have an STD, you will be given treatment by our clinic nursing staff according to the CDC recommendations for treatment of the specific STD.

Pregnancy Testing

Pregnancy testing is available on a sliding fee scale and no one will be denied service because of an inability to pay. A nurse will provide you with your results and answer any questions you may have. If test results are positive, the Oregon Mother's Care program staff is available to help with the Oregon Health Plan Application.
