Every aspect of care at Clinic by the Bay is provided by our dedicated volunteers with the support of a small team of staff who oversee clinic operations. Some of our volunteers are retired and others give time to the clinic in addition to their careers, or to fulfill an educational requirement. All volunteers are committed to a culture of mutual respect, caring and community.

Clinic by the Bay staff really worked with me to get an appointment within an appropriate amount of time, especially when I was in a lot of pain. They're really helpful and very accommodating.
