Please note that appointments will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis and wait time for an appointment could be several weeks if many patients sign up.

Appointments will be held on Saturdays 8:30am-12:45pm. An internet connection is preferred for video consultation but not required, as visits can also be conducted over the phone.

COVID-19

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we are not providing telehealth visits for new patients or any patients with suspected COVID-19.  If you think you may have COVID-19 and are experiencing symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, or chills, please avoid contact with others and see a healthcare provider as soon as possible—do not wait for an appointment with the Cardinal Free Clinics. If you are experiencing an emergency, please dial 911. If you are not experiencing a medical emergency and do not have a healthcare provider or health insurance, call 888-334-1000, select your preferred language, and press 9 to speak with an advice nurse for free through Valley Connections. You can also find healthcare providers offering COVID-19 appointments here. COVID-19 testing is currently offered free of charge at the following locations:

Note: due to federal mandate, testing is free and is exempt from the “public charge” rule. This means that if you access free COVID-19 testing it will not count against you in any way if you are seeking U.S. permanent resident status. More information about COVID-19 and public charge, including legal resources, can be found here. Information about coronavirus symptoms and prevention can be found here.
