The high cost of medical care is no secret these days, but a local group is continuing its hard work to limit the hardships of going to the doctor.
The Good Samaritan Clinic is a free medical clinic staffed by volunteer professionals from around the area.
Monday the group held its first clinic ever held during that day of the week.
The turnout was huge, and the popularity of the free clinics continues to grow
"The response has been overwhelming," explained clinic director Allison Blevins. "We've been really busy. We always have to put a sign on the door whenever we're open saying sorry we can't see anymore patients because we're just so busy. We've been well-received in the medical community, and we've had so much excitement from the volunteers."
The clinic relies on donations, but does not require specific income thresholds for you to be a patient.
