San Jose Clinic

Free Clinic is Wednesday 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Please call (408) 715-3088 to obtain information.

Sign-up Instructions: Our clinic does not take any appointments over the phone. Patients need to come to the School Health Clinic on Wednesday morning and get in line, in order to get a ticket for that evening's clinic. The tickets are handed out by a RotaCare volunteer, usually at about 7:00 a.m. The number of available tickets will vary, depending on how many volunteers are working on that given day, but it usually ranges from about 24 to 32 tickets. Patients who receive a ticket will then need to return to the clinic at 5:00 p.m. to be seen by the Medical Provider.
If you were unable to line up early to get a ticket, you may still stop by the clinic during the day on any Wednesday to see if tickets are still available for that evening’s clinic.  We post a sign on the fence outside the School Health clinic indicating whether or not tickets are available.  If they are, you may go inside and ask for one. 

Please note: that we do not prescribe narcotics for chronic use, and we do not store any narcotics at our clinic.  Also, we are unable to perform examinations to determine disability or to complete disability forms.

New Collaboration in 2016

Diabetic Care Partner

RotaCare San Jose has partnered with Dr. Barsoumian's office. Dr. Barsoumian has agreed to take our diabetic patients  referrals, patients in need of a diabetic retinal screening exam can do so at his office. Up to about a year ago we had a volunteer Ophthalmalogist, which is a much needed Specialty here at our clinic. As of 2016, 87% of San Jose clinic's patients are diabetic and they most definitely need their eyes checked at minimum every 2 years.

Operation Access (OA) Teams up with RotaCare San Jose !

RotaCare San Jose Free Medical Clinic is very pleased to have forged a new partnership with Operation Access. Operation Access (OA) is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco that provides outpatient surgeries to those uninsured/underinsured patients in need of vital surgical and specialty care. OA has invited Santa Clara County free clinics to send referrals of patients in need of cataract surgery, hernia repairs, or colonoscopies.  Patients eligible for these services are those whose incomes are at 250% of the Federal Poverty Level, do not have private health insurance, and are not eligible for MediCare or MediCal. 

We’ve recently referred eight patients and all have been seen for one of the surgeries listed. We hope to continue to collaborate with Operation Access again in the near future.
