Review from Guidestar
February 9, 2011

I am a 79 year old retired general and vascular surgeon who was a board member of the San Diego County Medical Society Foundation until my three terms were up last September. I have personally assisted Patient Access San Diego, a program administered by the Foundation, in obtaining volunteer physicians and other providers of medical care for patients who are carefully screened for need. I attended a daylong Kaiser surgery center session where over 100 volunteers provided surgical services for people who could not obtain work without correction of their surgical defect. Throughout my career I made it a precept that those in need of surgical services should receive them from caring physicians and other medical personnel whenever they were unable to pay through no fault of their own.
As a child of eight I had free care from the County of San Diego for a serious injury to my right arm. We were poor, and the care was free. In large part it was this experience that prompted me to become a physician and motivates activities such as Patient Access San Diego.

This program has been in existence about two years and I wouldn't change any part of it. Many have been helped by its services (500 patients, 2 million dollars worth of services).

It is gratifying to see first-hand the miracles that happen for patients who otherwise would not have access to specialty or surgical care. The ability to talk, have a job or live pain free are all taken for granted until those 'gifts' are taken from us. How does one place a price on restoring a person's dignity--the simple answer is what Project Access does--they restore their ability to be independent and lead productive lives.

Our organization now has a place to send primary care patients, who do not have financial resources, for specialty or surgical care.
