  • Minor illness/injury
  • Diabetes Clinic with Mandatory Education Classes

The Monterey Peninsula RotaCare Clinic is fully staffed with volunteer physicians, including a pediatrician. Volunteer staff also includes nurses and clerical positions from the local Rotary Clubs and community. We are a non-invasive, acute care facility; however, we have many physicians that do pro-bono work for us outside the clinic as needed. Our transfer agreement with Community Hospital takes care of all our blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound and cardiograms. Because we have an agreement with corporate Walgreens, our patients pay nothing for their first prescription of medication, however additional prescriptions are paid for by the patient..

JULIET CHANDLER, FNP

DIABETIC CARE NURSE PRACTITIONER-EDUCATOR

Juliet Chandler has been caring and educating diabetic patients at RotaCare for 11 years and she does know her patients very well, also knows their families as well.

“Medication nonadherence” has taken on a new meaning as many patients do not have the ability to afford all medications necessary to keep their diabetes in control.

One of Juliet’s patients takes certain medications every other month when they are meant to be taken simultaneously. “Whenever a patient tells me they are not taking all their medications I have learned not to draw hasty conclusions” and that is where education becomes the treatment.

Patients who attend the Diabetes Clinic learn that if they do not control their diabetes they could suffer many short and long-term complications which could render them unable to work.

" I consider it a privilege to be able to work with these patients and hoping sharing resources with them to improve their quality of life"-Juliet says.
