Who are our patients?

The San Francisco Free Clinic provides free medical care to people who do not have health insurance. If you are uninsured, you can receive medical care at our clinic.

How much does it cost?

Medical care at the SFCC is free, but donations are accepted.

What services are available?

We focus on primary medical care, such as the following:

  • Preventive health care
  • Diabetes screening and care
  • Chronic care for illnesses such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Vaccinations
  • Annual check-up exams
  • Non-emergency treatment of acute problems
  • Dietary counseling
  • Yoga classes

Can I get screened for diabetes?

We provide free diabetes screening, no appointment needed, between 10 am and 12 noon, Monday through Friday. You will need to be fasting (no food or drink other than water for 12 hours).

If the screening shows a problem, what should I do?

We will review your screening results with you, and if there is a problem, our physicians will see you to make sure you are getting good healthcare follow-up. If your results show that you have prediabetes, we have a whole series of steps you can take to prevent prediabetes from turning into type 2 diabetes. You can read about how to prevent diabetes here.
