Healthcare

General Information


Some of the medical resources listed here are free and some require you to pay on a “sliding scale” basis, which means that you pay based upon your income. If you or someone you know needs emergency medical attention, you should go to to an emergency department, listed under Emergency Care Provider. If you need to see a doctor for a regular checkup or a medical problem that is not an emergency, you should see a General Care Provider. If you have problems with your teeth, you should see a Dental Care Provider.
