The Iowa City FMC is the premier health services site for uninsured or under-insured patients in Johnson County. Patients are treated with dignity and respect, and examiners work with patients to develop treatment plans. As a volunteer, I know my time is always put to good use, from explaining medical documents to patients, to interpreting for non-English speaking patients during a visit, to helping patients schedule follow-up appointments. The ICFMC staff makes the clinic a fun and welcoming place to volunteer, and I always look forward to being there!
The Iowa City Free Medical Clinic provides support and health care for those who are unable to receive care due to limiting factors such as scheduling and expenses. Everyone who visits the clinic is equally welcomed and treated with respect. The volunteers who offer their time and services are always happy to be there.
The staff at the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic are amazingly dedicated. They go above and beyond to work to provide top-quality medical care and help patients continue to access essential medical services. Their passion for what they do shows in thier interactions with both patients and volunteers and it has been a privledge to work with them and learn from them.
As a volunteer at the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic I've been given the opportunity to interact with the staff and patients who present to the clinic. The staff working the clinic are extremely welcoming to all patients. Patient privacy is respected by workers and volunteers alike. Patients are told honestly what they can expect from the clinic (treatment, care, help finding insurance). The clinic offers a variety of services for both acute and chronic health problems. Different services (ex. dermatology, physical therapy) are available at certain times throughout the month.
I love volunteering at FMC. It's such a positive environment, and it's so clear that volunteers, examiners, and staff strive to make patients feel as comfortable as possible. It's a great organization that is doing a lot for the people in our community! I'm proud to be a part of it!
