Zucker School of Medicine Free Clinic
Rego Park, New York 11374
The Zucker School of Medicine Free Clinic is a student-run organization that serves the primary care needs of uninsured adult patients - regardless of immigration, work or health status. You must be 18 or older to qualify for services.
All services provided are free of charge. The only fee you may incur is for prescription medication, but we are mindful of cost when choosing which medications to prescribe.
Run by students of the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, with the support of onsite faculty-physicians, the Zucker School of Medicine Free Clinic offers annual physicals, sick visits, vaccines, blood work, electrocardiograms and additional primary care services for patients in need, including referrals to other low or no-cost specialists. The clinic is located close to Long Island Jewish Forest Hills (part of Northwell Health), which provides us with administrative and clinical support, including medical records management and emergency care.
The goal of the clinic is to provide access to high-quality primary care to underserved, uninsured patients while simultaneously establishing a confident, trusting and open connection with the highly diverse population of Queens. All languages are spoken.
To make an appointment for a clinic visit, call (631) 393-5650 on weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
