The Macon Volunteer Clinic allowed me and my peers to volunteer in the dental clinic as students. I believe that we all enjoyed the experience. All of the patients seemed very satisfied with their care as a whole. The clinic was organized and well run and maintained.

I volunteer here regularly and the people who volunteer are super! Everyone is here to help our patients, who all hold jobs and work hard, but do not make enough money to afford health insurance. Our patients are very grateful for the medical, dental, ophthalmic, and mental health services we provide to them at no cost. Volunteer doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, dentists, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, ophthalmologists, phlebotomists, medical students, college students, as well as support staff (office workers) all come together to help keep our local population healthy and productive. It's a great place to work!

I began volunteering at Macon Volunteer clinic because I love what they do - provide health care for people who are working but simply can't afford health insurance. What I have found since I began volunteering there is that I also love the amazingly kind, committed, and hard-working people who work there. It is a privilege to be a part of something that does so much to serve the community, and a pleasure to work with such great people.

It was truly an honor to volunteer at this clinic. It was my first time ever volunteering but it was a rewarding first time. Everyone was so helpful and passionate about helping and volunteering. It made it easy to get into the flow of things. It's good to know that there are people out in the world that still care about other people.

This is my second year to volunteer at the Macon Volunteer Clinic and, as we help patients get their papers in order to become eligible for care, I am aware more and more how important the Clinic is to so many people who are working (some more than one job) but not able to pay for health insurance. The clinic is filling a great need in Macon and the volunteers and full-time staff are caring and concerned. The patients are grateful and fortunate to have such wonderful care.

I love working with the volunteers and staff and really appreciate their efforts. The doctors and nurses go above and beyond what is expected to serve their patients.

It makes you remember why you do what you do. The patients that come to the volunteer clinic work hard to provide for their families yet are not able to afford the insurance or healthcare they need. Seeing the gratitude these individuals have for the care you provide them is priceless.

They really benefit the local Macon community! There are so many Maconites who are hard workers but are not afforded the opportunity for health insurance; however, they can be seen by doctors at this clinic free of charge.

I was privileged to work for Macon Volunteer Clinic for 2.5 years, and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. MVC is a true gem, a beacon of hope in the dark depths of poverty and sickness, for Bibb County. Because of MVC, residents are able to receive medicine; medical, dental, and eye care; surgeries; mammography services; ultrasounds; and much more...free of charge! Dr. Henley's vision of bringing together the medical community to serve the working uninsured could not have matriculated in a more sincere, caring way.
