How Can I Become A Patient?
Our patients are the reason Volunteers in Medicine was created. Our patients are the people we see every day in our community. Our patients work hard and are focused on doing their best to provide for their families. We want to help the working uninsured stay healthy and have access to primary care services.
The facility is not an emergency room or a walk-in clinic, but an appointment only primary care facility to provide preventative medical care to the local working uninsured. Patients will have to meet certain criteria. As part of the Volunteers in Medicine network, we provide care at no cost to our patients. We do not take any form of insurance and do not charge co-pays for our services. If you have a medical emergency please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
