RotaCare: San Rafael
RotaCare is a nonprofit corporation formed for the purpose of providing free medical care to people who have the most need and the least access to medical services. It is a coalition of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, interpreters/translators and other volunteers who provide free medical care to the medically underserved in a collaborative effort with Rotary Clubs, hospitals, clinics, community and social service organizations and service groups.
The San Rafael RotaCare Clinic treats patients with minor illnesses or injuries. Each month specialty clinics are conducted with specialists in dermatology, psychiatry, and ophthalmology. We also offer appointments for consultation with a licensed dietician and a diabetic educator. After an initial visit with a RotaCare doctor, referrals will be made as appropriate to the specialty clinic. We are starting a twice per month Transitional Clinic for chronic care patients who meet certain criteria. We have a "Healthy Living Program" and "Relaxation Techniques" classes. We also offer vaccinations and HIV testing on a monthly basis.
