The Free Medical Clinic of Darlington County is a wonderful asset to our community. I have found in my years of voluteering a wonderful avenue for growing in the opportunity to love my neighbor as myself. The best part of the clinic is that every patient and potential patient is treated not just with the dignity of being a human being, but with the care and concern of being a neighbor. By such an attitude of concern all involved, doctors, staff, volunteers and patients are brought together from all walks of life, not only towards the end goal of patient care, but towards the greater goal of neaghbor care.

The Free Medical Clinic of Darlington County is comprised of doctors, nurses, volunteers, and very few paid personel. The clinic is based on Christian service to the community and anyone who qualifies for health care that they cannot afford, the Clinic is there for them. It is for those who are uninsured, no Medicaid/Medicare and are either working or trying to find work. It has been a blessing for this county. We are proud of all the doctors and nurses who give of their time to provide the health care needed. Also, the medicines are free if they are available. If not, then the Clinic volunteers help find the drug companies who will provide the more expensive drugs. I cannot say enough about what this means to our community.

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

By the caring doctors and nurses who give up their own time to help the ones who are unable to help themselves right now.

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

Ask for more volunteers.

Volunteering with the Free Medical Clinic of Darlington County is one of the most meaningful and rewarding experiences of my life.
I have never worked anywhere that the love of Christ was so evident. The people who work there or donate to the clinic in any way do so for one reason only and that is the desire to help others.
The people who have need of the services there are so loving and patient with us when the needs are great and the wait sometimes seems long. The clinic provides a vital service to our community that can't be found anywhere else with the love and respect shown to all who come. Smiles and laughter and hugs are commonplace there.

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

I have seen the clinic grow physically and in patient numbers under the loving guidance of Kathy Baxley. So many people who would not have anywhere else to go for help, have received care and medicines and equipment that they desperately needed. Most importantly, the patients are regularly prayed for according to their needs.

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

Have more people experience the joy of volunteering with this clinic or by helping in anyway possible to keep it available to all in need.

I have volunteered in the Darlington office of the Free Medical Clinic since it was opened. I have been so impressed with the staff. Not only are they experienced and good in their professions, they are also extremely supportive of any patient who comes or calls the clinic. Everyone is treated with dignity and if they do not meet the requirements for coming to the clinic, staff refers them to other sources of help. Staff manage a large number of volunteer doctors, nurses and clerical people to make certain that medical needs of patients are met.

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

helping those folks who do not have insurance or means to pay for medical expenses to get first rate services in this area.

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

make certain that "house-keeping" personel is available more often.
