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

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.


Introduction to the Discharge Nurse Team

I would like to introduce everyone to our Dynamic Duo Discharge Team, Lead Discharge Nurse, Norma Miron-Conk, RN and Sergio Gonzalez, RN. Norma has been volunteering for almost 3 ½ years and Sergio has been volunteering almost 3 years. The discharge position was implemented at RotaCare San Jose just a month before Norma had started volunteering and she has taking this position by its horns.  Norma is a retired nurse from Valley Medical Center.  Once Norma retired, she wanted to continue nursing and taking care of patients and RotaCare San Jose afforded her the opportunity.  Besides, volunteering in the discharge area, Norma helps in her spare time recruit office staff for the San Jose clinic.  Norma sees the need in the front desk area, and has actually recruited some of our fantastic front desk clerks including her own husband Peter Miron-Conk.

Sergio Gonzalez, RN was referred by another volunteer, and like Norma has helped the discharge area tremendously. Sergio not only helps with the discharge area, but also comes in early clinic morning and distributes the tickets to patients by 7am. Sergio has been a nurse for over 30 years, and decided he needed to something with some of his spare time and RotaCare San Jose has welcomed him with open arms.  The discharge team has been taking lead in: diabetic teaching, medication counseling, diabetic education class sign-up,  and medication inventory.
