The Hope Clinic is a non-profit, internal medicine clinic.
Dr. William Martin at Hope Clinic is a no-nonsense kind of guy. When it comes to health care reform, that’s exactly what this mess of a country needs. Common sense. And a heart. In 2002, the internist had reached the point where he’d had enough of the restrictions placed on him by managed care. So the good doctor and his wife, Pam, opened the Hope Clinic in Lawrenceville. It cares for the uninsured, under-insured and indigent. There, practically every patient pays something, even if it’s just $5. Dr. Martin and an assistant see about 40 patients a day. Occasionally less. Oftentimes more.
About 7 years ago I personally was without any health insurance. Sick with a terrible flu, I was taken to Hope Clinic by my wife after being rejected for care at a local health clinic. For an unbelievable nominal charge, Dr. Martin and his staff took care of my needs. And just before leaving the good doctor asked me if I had ever had my blood glucose checked … I said "no," and he suggested we check it before I left. That as the day I found out I had diabetes. I had been having early symptoms for some time but thought they were related to something completely different. This story is exactly why so many people admire Dr. Martin … when he looks at a patient he sees a fellow human being in need, not a chart or patient number.
