About specialty clinics: In order to provide a more holistic care for our patients, we open up our clinic for specialty services that our clinic does not offer. 

Mental Health

Initially a passion project driven by past undergraduate, Katherine Domenici, this newly admitted Committee strives to increase awareness of mental health to patients and others, spread information about how to practice good mental wellness, and let our patients know that they are not alone in whatever they are encountering. Currently, there is a Clinical Case Manager, Aury Gutierrez-Zavala, and a psychologist, Dr. Wolfe, who meet with patients one on one; mostly by appointment. For more information regarding this committee and it’s services, please contact either of the Co-Heads, Bryan Ortega at baortega@ucdavis.edu and Ernesto Casillas at emcasillos@ucdavis.edu.

Legal Aid Clinic

Legal Aid Clinic was started by a passionate undergraduate, Nori Dubon, who saw the need for a legal resource for our patients requiring legal consultation. About once a month, two attorneys volunteer their time to give free consultations to Tepati patients. During the sessions, patients are able to ask anything without the fear of exposing their information or having to pay any money. The sessions are usually 15-30 minutes long and each Legal Aid Clinic has about 5-9 patients by appointment. For more information, please contact the current coordinator of the program, Carolina Banales at clbbanales@ucdavis.edu.

Podiatry Clinic

Clínica Tepati invites podiatrists and podiatry students into our clinic once a month to treat patients with chronic or acute injuries specifically to their feet. Patients are seen mostly by appointment and by walk-in basis if there is extenuating circumstances. For more information about the services provided by our Podiatry Clinic or scheduling, please contact the Executive Administrator, Jasmine Santos, at jgsantos@ucdavis.edu.

Fitness Class

Clínica Tepati’s “Teparti Time” fitness program was started by a past undergraduate, Kendall Frisoli, who wanted to provide our patients, especially those suffering from diabetes and hypertension, with some exercise techniques they could implement in their lives at home. This class is not only held with the intention of patients exercising when at clinic, but also to provide them with some tips that could be used when they returned home; such as using water bottles as weights. For more information about the fitness class and it’s schedule, please contact the Health Education committee Co-Heads, Sarah Jhanjar at sljhanjar@ucdavis.edu and Ria Marathe at rmarathe@ucdavis.edu.

Alzheimer’s Class

The Alzheimer’s class provides culturally competent information to patients who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or Dementia, as well as for patients who have a family member suffering from these diseases. A licensed clinical social worker, Alexandra Weisberger, who is a representative for the Alzheimer’s Association, leads the class and answers any questions the patients may have in Spanish and English. For more information about the information provided during the class or scheduling questions, please contact Health Education committee Co-Heads, Sarah Jhanjar at sljhanjar@ucdavis.edu and Ria Marathe at rmarathe@ucdavis.edu.
