Review for JUDEO CHRISTIAN HEALTH CLINIC INC, Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Judeo Christioan Clinic was the first real medical experience that I had as a premed student. I was first involved as an interpreter/help with whatever was needed, and I did that for a little over 4 years. Then I became a medical student and I have been helping see patients there this last year. This clinic and its goals have been one of the main drivers in my desire to become a primary care physician. I have had the privileged to work with under represented and under served minorities and I have been able to see, first hand, the difference that we are making in these patients lives. Everything from lifestyle changes, BP/glucose maintenance to cancer treatment and surgeries, have been offered to our patients thanks to the gracefulness of our volunteers and of our great donors. I have been able to learn a lot about what medicine is like, the many health disparities present in our community, the huge impact that primary care/lack of has on patients, and I have been able to see the results and improvements that come about when physicians, nurses, social workers, and people in our community volunteer for the benefit of others.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The feedback and gratitude that the patients give us.

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

exceptional. They were personable, candid, caring, smart, giving, great mentors and teachers.

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

expand the coverage to many more patients that need assistance still. Provide shorter waiting times for exams, follow-up visits.

Ways to make it better...

No changes.

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

Sometimes it could have used a few more volunteers, but the ones that are present always come through.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
