Beyond receiving care, Maria and Rus are thrilled they “can give something back” to the students through education. Rus explained that the student-run free clinic is “a two-way partnership. The clinic helps the patient and the patient helps the clinical experience for the doctors to be.”

“If it weren't for a place like this, I probably wouldn't be alive”, shares Levine with much gratitude. We met Levine at Midlothian Free Clinic in Youngstown, Ohio. Originally from Ohio, Levine just returned from living in Wisconsin where he had moved for a job. As Levine has learned, life comes at you fast and often changes your plans.

I think knowing the patients, their histories, and knowing what we do with the little that we have makes it worth while working here.

Open M really makes you feel confident that they are just as professional as a regular doctor’s office. They are more thorough here than at other doctors I’ve been to and they seem to really care.

I was referred to the clinic because I hadn’t had insurance for a couple years and was unemployed when I had pain for six months and I discovered that I had a hole in my lower wisdom tooth.

With no insurance and a limp in his walk, Glenn bounced around from doctor’s office to doctor's office “getting raked over the coals” without receiving quality care that he could afford.

I would like them to know, don’t be afraid to come. Don’t be too proud because it says free. Don’t be afraid to know more about yourself and the services that this place offers.
