Reviews for Volunteer Health Corps of Batonrouge
It was a pleasure to volunteer at Volunteer Health Corps. The staff were very pleasant and always upbeat. The staff genuinely cared for their patients. As a volunteer and student, I learned a lot from the doctors, who were eager to teach. This is great facility for the patients that use it and I am happy that I have knowledge of it and was able to experience all that they offer first hand.

The time I spent volunteering at this clinic was phenomenal. The staff was incredibly passionate and helpful. The doctors were extremely knowledgable and the nurses were very caring. This clinic is what this community needs, access to healthcare for the members of the community who are struggling finically. The patients were appreciative for the help they received. I know without a doubt that we improved the quality of peoples lives today.
My experience, as a Physician Assistant Student, at VHC was wonderful. I got some much needed patient care experience, interactions with physicians and other healthcare providers. I was impressed by the services offered to these patients and the level of healthcare provided. The physicians were friendly, and accommodating to not only myself, but the patients as well. I was really impressed by the facility.
Volunteer Health Corps was an incredible place to work! The staff was so helpful, and the coordinator, Tonya, was so informative and helpful as well. The patients were very appreciative and I love that they had a place to follow up. Would love to come back and help.
This is a wonderful non-profit health center. The staff was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them. Tanya, our coordinator, was amazing; she was very patient and informative and kept us moving! The patients were also so thankful for our help and thankful to have a place to go for their medical care. Will be back to volunteer again, LOVED this experience.

I volunteered for the first time at the Volunteer Health Corps of Baton Rouge today, and it was one of the best experiences I've gone through. All of the volunteers and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Everyone treated the patients with care as if they had known them for an extended period of time. I will definitely be back to volunteer for the Volunteer Health Corp of Baton Rouge next Tuesday!
