IMG provides a range of services that include but is not limited to, healthcare treatment programs, pharmacy (RX) services, case management, mental health, and substance abuse management. IMG focuses on providing the highest quality of treatment
and support services to ensure all at-risk individuals can receive healthcare services via our clinics and mobile clinics across Florida.

After a 20+ year career in healthcare and pharmacy executive boardrooms high school friends and co-founders, Clifford W. Knights II and Steve Vixamar developed Independent Medical Group in 2014. Currently, IMG employs 40+ healthcare professionals and has treated over 2,000 South Florida residents living with HIV, Hep C, or STDs. IMG has also joined forces with health clinics across the country, to offer COVID-19 testing via our mobile and brick-and-mortar clinics.

At IMG, we understand the challenges many of the underserved communities face in receiving quality healthcare. Our goal is to raise awareness of the treatment options available for HIV, Hep C, and STDs. As well as addressing the impact these virus’ has on individuals and communities that are not currently receiving treatment or may not have treatment options readily available in their community. With every new patient at IMG, we are on track to reduce the number of people in our community who are not currently receiving treatment for fatal viruses that have prevented them from living a healthy life. Since 2014 we have become the leading healthcare firm, delivering the highest quality of services to all.

Our goal is to help provide a cost-­‐effective and compassionate solution to healthcare services to rural and urban underserved communities,” Knights said.

IMG created a hasslee free healthcare process to access services via a mobile app, mobile clinics, telehealth and a usere friendly website. On our website, (www.letsprepnow.com), you have the option to order and receive Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a daily medication to prevent HIV prevention. The digital and mobile services allow at-risk individuals access to the healthcare services they need without the inconvenience of traveling and waiting for quality care. IMG is continuously building partnerships to create convenient and effective healthcare to provide treatment for HIV, Hep C, STD’s, and general health needs in underserved communities.
