Latinos United of Carroll County, Inc.
The LUCC Clinic was established as a response to the community’s need for accessible and affordable healthcare and is dedicated to improving the physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being of the elderly, poor, and underserved growing Latino population. Realizing that Carroll County has a large impoverished Latino and African American population and that the poor often lack adequate healthcare, the LUCC Clinic was created to address these needs. After gaining city approval from the Carrollton Housing Authority, LUCC's Healthcare Clinic opened for service on August 23, 2002.
Our Clinic is our most successful program.
It was founded and it’s directed by Dr. González, a physician who has served the community for over 30 years. Our clinic provides medical assistance to adults and children with or without health insurance (we are unable to process your health insurance, but we’ll be able to assist you).
The current Nurse Practitioner, Ellen Kay Long is a graduate of the Emory University School of Nursing. She is compassionate to those in need, and has a great desire to educate patients about how to maintain good health. A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a Registered Nurse who has advanced education and training. NP’s are recognized as Advanced Practitioner Nurses.
The big difference between our clinic and others is that we really want to educate our patients. Better knowledge brings better choices taken on your health, therefore your life.
Additional services that we provide are:
Pregnancy Test, Urinalysis, Physical Exam ( school & work), A1C test, Electro-Cardiogram.
We have a partnership with the University of West Georgia's Continuing Education. Currently we are seeking to get classes in the evening as well.
