These physicians have given of their time to provide medical care to Free Clinic patients — patients who have no insurance and very little income; patients who do not have the ability to pay for medical care and who would not be able to see a physician if not for the willingness of these doctors to volunteer their time. Quite often these volunteering physicians come straight from the hospital or their private practice office (where they have already put in a long day of work) to continue seeing patients at the clinic for several additional hours in the evening.
Volunteers are the “life-blood” of the Free Clinic. Through the coordinated effort of volunteer physicians, nurses, and clerical volunteers the clinic staffed 3,000 medical visits in 2011.
A special “thank you” goes out today to these doctors that honor their profession and their community by giving of their time and talents to the Free Clinic of Rome. Happy Doctor’s Day!
