This North Hollywood clinic is the worse, I like the one in North Hills unfortunately to get an appointment I have to call the NoHo one and never can get an appointment no matter what time or what day I call and if I'm lucky to get one after weeks of trying they call me to let me know they have to cancel it because my doctor Is not there, I asked them to please accommodate me with another doctor and the girls response is for me to call next week.

In a city where hundreds of thousands of people remain uninsured, this clinic provides a haven. A beautiful, clean and welcoming building houses dedicated staff and physicians providing services to anyone who has a need. General medicine, pediatrics, pre-natal, dentistry, optometry, mammograms, HIV testing, counseling and nutrition are just some of the services offered to anyone who has a need regardless of their ability to pay. Each patient is treated with kindness and respect. As a Federally Qualified Health Clinic, 51% of the Board Members are patients of the ciinic which gives the Board a unique insight into the daily operations of the clinic. From the top management all the way through, this is a well run organization serving essential services to an under served community.

This is a very tightly run ship that provides an amazing array of important services to the community around it, with particular attention to the uninsured and the under-insured. Most offerings are priced on a sliding scale. Services include pre-natal, pediatrics, adolescent care, men's health, women's health, teen outreach, HIV testing and maintenance, a diabetes maintenance clinic, mental health, optometry, dentistry and others. The clinic has a vital and committed board and a strong staff. Great group.

A wonderful service to our community. As a Board member I can attest to the incredible integrity, ability and commitment of staff - medical and administrative - to serving those in need. Community Clinics are often overlooked as the essential providers of health care that they. Valley Community Clinic does invaluable work in this arena, and again, is led by remarkable staff and volunteers.
