We had a single dad come to the Mobile Medical Clinic recently. He has a leg injury and had to take a temporary leave from work until his leg is better. Unfortunately, this leave is unpaid and this father is really feeling the financial stress, knowing that he doesn’t have the funds to provide for his young daughters. He can’t return to work without a doctor’s note saying he is able to perform the daily tasks and duties his job requires. After being examined by Dr. Jimenez, we were able to give him that note and get him back to work soon! Even once he gets back to work, he doesn’t work enough hours to qualify for the company’s health insurance plan. We assured him that if he ever needs anything in the future that Wallace would be happy to help him out.
He was unable to donate at this time, but said he will mail us a check once he gets back to work. We told him that we appreciated that gesture, but to first take care of his daughters and if he was able to send a small donation later, that’d be great. We will be seeing this patient back in a few weeks to discuss lab results. Through an invaluable relationship with Legacy Health Systems, we were able to send him to Legacy to get free lab work done. He was very appreciative of our services and had a wonderful experience on the Mobile Medical Clinic.
