The San Rafael RotaCare Clinic treats patients with minor illnesses or injuries. Each month specialty clinics are conducted with specialists in dermatology, psychiatry, and ophthalmology. We also offer appointments for consultation with a licensed dietician and a diabetic educator. After an initial visit with a RotaCare doctor, referrals will be made as appropriate to the specialty clinic. We are starting a twice per month Transitional Clinic for chronic care patients who meet certain criteria. We have a "Healthy Living Program" and "Relaxation Techniques" classes. We also offer vaccinations and HIV testing on a monthly basis.

RotaCare San Rafael Celebrates 20 Years!

RotaCare San Rafael is excited to be celebrating our 20th anniversary!  Our clinic was founded by 4 members of the Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise in July of 1997, Mike Osborne, Sharron Newton, Gus Catechi and Peter Pattengill.  That year the local Rotary District Governor had the theme of preventing homelessness and in keeping with that theme, the club members had the idea of starting a free clinic.  They researched and explored the contributors to homelessness, discovered the existence of RotaCare Bay Area and joined the RotaCare Bay Area network of clinics.

In the beginning, the clinic was held once a week at Ritter House, in San Rafael.  In 2003 the clinic moved to Kaiser Permanente’s Downtown San Rafael Office and expanded their hours to twice a week.  Little by little specialty clinics, such as dermatology and ophthalmology were added.  Last year we served an average of 18 patients per clinic.  We are proud to have served our community for these past 20 years!
