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.
The Referrals committee was designed to connect patients to services not available on any given clinic Saturday. Specialty services include EKGs, MRIs, X-Rays, Women’s Health, Dental and Optometry. Patients are able to obtain access to these health resources at a lower cost from local medical professionals. For more information regarding this committee, please contact any of the Co-Heads, Johanna Bedoy (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sheccid Torres (email@example.com) or Edgar Orube (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Legal Aid ClinicLegal 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. For telehealth, we offer 30 minutes free consultations with an attorney. During the sessions, patients are able to ask anything without the fear of exposing their information or having to pay any money. If interested in receiving this aid, please call the clinic phone number at (916) 209-0912.
Podiatry ClinicClínica 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 are extenuating circumstances. Due to COVID-19, this service has been stopped till further notice. For more information about this service provided by our Podiatry Clinic, please contact the Executive Administrator, Diana Magana Martinez, at email@example.com.
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 return home; such as using water bottles as weights.
Due to COVID-19, in-clinic services have been stopped till further notice. For more information about the fitness class, please contact the Health Education committee Co-Heads, Yazmin Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org and Ashely Covarrubias at email@example.com
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, Victoria Villacorta at firstname.lastname@example.org and Juan Novoa at email@example.com
