This place is wonderful. My family has been there for different reasons after loosing our health insurance and could not afford to obtain it on my own. The staff is amazing. These people truly care about our wellness. The clinic operates on donations, so if you or some one that you know can donate, this is a well deserved place. When I have the extra beyond basic expenses, ill do my part. thanks so much .

I feel that we are lucky to reside in an area served by Rotacare. My mother, who doesn't have health insurance or income, was seen at Rotacare three times. Although each time, there are different doctors and nurses, they are all polite, patient, and professional. The clinic is clean and organized. My mother is better now and I want to give my great thanks to the doctors, nurses, and sponsors at Rotacare Care Free clinic.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Mountain View

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep a file for each patient

I feel that we are lucky to reside in an area served by Rotacare. My mother, who doesn't have health insurance or income, was seen at Rotacare three times.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

They are all polite, patient, and professional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its serves area and improve its serves complicity

Ways to make it better...

we can make appointments online, or in other means (not stricted to call in during certain peroid of time).

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

patient are served by volunteers, which means not with consistent doctor/nurse.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the appointment scheduling should be made easier

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time

RotaCare is a tremendous organization that provides free medical care for those who can not afford it. I am a physician, who volunteers to see patients at RotaCare. I work with other volunteer physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, translaters, pharmacists, and students, all of whom are dedicated and committed to providing excellent care for these needy patients. I get tremendous satisfaction working at RotaCare, which makes me proud to be a physician.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely competent, caring, compassionate, and dedicated to providing high quality care for all patients.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
