Medical Clinics

Our clinics are designed for low-income individuals and families, who may not have insurance coverage or be able to afford “out-of-pocket” expenses. Generally, they are ineligible for Medi-Cal coverage, yet do not receive health insurance through their employers.

Both Clinics are open Monday through Friday. Services include internal medicine, gynecology, breast care, dermatology, nephrology, diabetic care, endocrinology and optometry, podiatry, nutritional counseling, pulmonary, mental health counseling and other specialties, plus health education.

Dental Clinics

Free Dental Clinic services are offered in both Medical Clinics and include fillings, cleanings, extractions, and root canals. Services are available by appointment only and require prior registration. Call (650) 347-3648 to register for Dental Services in San Mateo, or (650) 341-4081 ext. 4005 for the Redwood City Clinic.

Who is Treated? 

Patients of our clinics are the working poor. They tend to earn just enough income to be ineligible for Medi-Cal coverage, yet do not receive health insurance through their employers and cannot afford to pay for “out-of-pocket” health insurance. Often these residents are forced to seek treatment at local emergency rooms and become saddled with medical bills that they are unable to pay. Samaritan House’s Free Medical Clinics fill this gap in healthcare access for the uninsured and save emergency room resources for emergencies.

Professional Medical & Dental Volunteers:

Thanks to its innovative volunteer-based model of service, Samaritan House’s clinics are able to treat such a large number of patients with a very small paid staff. Almost all of the medical and dental doctors and assistants are volunteering their time free of charge. These individuals, either retired or currently practicing medicine and dentistry, want to serve their community in their limited spare time.
