Volunteer Doctor Clinic Many local doctors donate their time and services by volunteerting on site at Health Care Access Clinic. These appointments are often used by patients who have medical conditions which need consultation from a physician. Patients will be seen by an ARNP prior to a visit with a volunteer provider.

This consultation is donated, however follow-up arrangements must be made between the client and the specialist. Medication Assistance Program Health Care Access Clinic realizes that some patients are unable to afford medications. Medication assistance is limited to Health Care Access Clinic clients and the prescriptions that they receive through our clinic or through a referral specialist.
There are three different options for medication assistance:

The physicians will donate portions of their samples to us for use by the Health Care Access Clinic patient. * Discount Vouchers Discounts are available at participating pharmacies with issued vouchers.
