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. 

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, Victoria Villacorta at vmvillacorta@ucdavis.edu and Juan Novoa at jmnovoa@ucdavis.edu

Counseling and Psychiatry

Mental health committee is here to provide emotional support to patients through counseling and psychiatry. Thanks to our preceptors patients can schedule appointments for in-person or over-the phone visits to acquire resources such as free counseling, medication, and further information on mental health resources and services. 

For more information, please contact Sofia Molvi at skmolvi@ucdavis.edu and Erik Mendez-Baron at ermendezbaron@ucdavis.edu. To schedule an appointment, call our clinic phone number at (916) 209-0912.

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 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 yrodriguezgarcia@ucdavis.edu and Ashley Covarrubias at acovarrubias@ucdavis.edu

Legal Aid Clinic

Legal Aid Clinic was started by a passionate undergraduate, Nori Dubon, who recognized how many of our patients could benefit from a legal resource. Two attorneys volunteer their time to Clinica Tepati about once a month and provide our patients with 30-minute long consultations. These sessions are 100% confidential and free of charge to our patients. We work together with our volunteers to foster a safe environment for our patients to ensure they feel comfortable in asking any question they may have regarding legal issues. 

If interested in receiving this service, or if you or anyone you know, has further questions about this service, please contact Clinica Tepati at (916) 209-0912.

Pharmacy 

The Pharmacy committee was developed to increase patient access to medication at a more affordable cost. Through various voucher programs, patients receive necessary medicine, such as insulin, at no additional cost. An in-clinic supply of diabetes maintenance equipment provides on-site support for diabetes healthcare. For more information about what medications are covered, please contact the Pharmacy committee Co-Heads, Joyann Lu at joylu@ucdavis.edu and Abigail Allen at abgallen@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 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, Lesly López Guzmán, at lylopez@ucdavis.edu.

Referrals 

Our mission in the Referrals Committee is to provide free or reduced specialty services – that are not already provided by Clinica Tepati–to our patients in Sacramento and surrounding areas. Our caseworkers work collaboratively with outside clinics and other health care facilities to ensure our patients receive the services they need for preventative and health maintenance. Some of our services include: imaging services (CT scans, MRIs, X-rays, ultrasounds, mammograms, etc.), dental, optometry, ophthalmology, cardiology, podiatry, legal aid, and women’s health services. For more information on our established services or other inquiries, please contact the Referrals Committee co-heads: Karina Lopez Carmona (kjlopezcarmona@ucdavis.edu), Alejandro Perez (apsperez@ucdavis.edu), and/or Alejandra Romo (akromo@ucdavis.edu).
