One doctor understood the challenge of the uninsured when it comes to medical services and care. He dreamed of establishing a free clinic in his community.
SLO Noor Foundation, told local news that he is trying to reach the middle class patients. "Part of the problem is with current insurance, the premium is getting higher, every visit costs a lot of money. I see a lot of people who do have a job they do have some income but they still cannot afford to get insurance, whether it's the premium or the co-pay," he explained.
The clinic will be the first clinic of its kind, "with so many services under one roof, offered free of charge, and being 100 percent volunteer run from the doctors to the front desk, aside from two part time positions," the local news article reported.
