UB Clinics Offer Cost Effective Health Care

The UB Clinics are located on the University of Bridgeport campus bordering Seaside Park along the shore of Long Island Sound. UB Clinics represent the clinical teaching facilities for UB's College of Naturopathic Medicine, College of Chiropractic, Acupuncture Institute and Fones School of Dental Hygiene. Each of these specialty clinics are open to the public and offer affordable treatment options in these various disciplines at a fraction of the cost of comparable treatments with private practitioners. UB Clinics provide numerous opportunities for patients to experience medical and wellness care in one convenient location. The UB Clinics provide valuable healthcare services to upwards of 20,000 patients in the southern Connecticut region annually, including those who are uninsured and underinsured. In 2009, UB Clinics provided patient treatment and other health services valued at $1.4 million to the public.

 The University’s Naturopathic Medical Clinic is a complete outpatient medical center serving a widely diverse population where patients are treated by licensed naturopathic physicians assisted by interns. Facilities include exam-treatment rooms, laboratories, hydrotherapy facilities, rehabilitation equipment, and a comprehensive herbal and nutritional dispensary. The Acupuncture Clinic combines traditional Chinese Medicine, encompassing acupuncture, manual therapy, diet counseling, exercise and breathing techniques for such ailments as: allergies, hypertension, acute and chronic pain, migraines, back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel, stomach problems, gynecological issues, and more. UB’s Chiropractic Clinic is guided by the principle that the body is an integrated unit with intrinsic, self-regulating and healing mechanisms. Patients will find relief through a drugless, non-surgical approach to health care, including spinal adjustments, soft-tissue therapy, physiotherapeutic modalities, exercise, rehabilitation, and nutrition and lifestyle counseling. The Fones School Dental Hygiene Clinic offers examinations, X-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants, in its new state-of-the-art facility. Every client receives full evaluations through medical and dental history review and vitals, oral examination and cancer screenings, and dental and periodontal assessments. UB Clinics also offer radiology and laboratory services.

All clinics are located on campus, at the university’s Health Sciences Center, 60 Lafayette Avenue in Bridgeport. To obtain more information or make an appointment, please call 203.576.4349, e-mail [email protected], and visit www.UBClinics.org.
