As a physical therapist here in North County, we have been voluntering to assist Project in providing services to their clients.
This organization serves a very important and much needed service to all of San Diego.
They are well organized, efficient and deserve increased revenues that will allow them to help keep the cost of medical down in San Diego.

I have seen indigent patients as a volunteer physician for the San Diego County Medical Society's Project Access. This charity is very well organized and effective at making sure patients receiving free care through their volunteer physicians and hospitals are truly in need and have no other resources. The patients I've treated are extremely appreciative and Project Access is indispensable in setting up the ancillary services patients need but cannot afford. This is a most rewarding endeavor, for the patients as well as the volunteers!

Our Surgeon volunteers her time to perform surgeries for Project Access Patients. It is extremely easy for our office staff to set up the Patient's consultation and surgery with the help from the Project Access staff. The Patients are always prepared and on time when they come to our office. It has been a pleasure to provide a much needed service to the Patients of Project Access. We enjoy volunteering to help people in our community and Project Access does an amazing job facilitating our volunteer services. Project Access is an asset to the people of San Diego.

Project Access is an amazing organization. They make it very easy for our doctors at ENT Associates of San Diego to volunteer and help the people in our community that dont have access to medical care.
We are proud to be part of such an organization

My job as a volunteer was a traslator, it's is so important than patients can understand their Doctor 's instructions of how to take care of themselfs after surgery, how to contact their Doctors in case of complications and follow up appoinments and or treatments.
I feel so good that I was able to help and be part of that important task.

Project Access San Diego makes a great difference in the lives of the uninsured in the county. Without Project Access patients in dire need of care would suffer, needlessly. I am eager to see how the program will grow throughout the community in the future.

As someone with health insurance, I can only imagine what it feels like to not have access to care. The Medical Society Foundation does a fantastic job providing assistance to those who cannot afford healthcare, helping families by allowing them to get back to work and take care of themselves.

During the healthcare debate I started to research what options are available to patients without healthcare and I came across The San Diego County Medical Society Foundation. What an amazing resource for people without insurance to gain access to specialized healthcare.

I often think what it would be like to have a specific problem and not be able to help and after reading about The Society Foundation they are doing incredible things to help people solve that problem.

Expand it to more communities.
