Medical Care (not for Emergencies!)
The Brooklyn Free Clinic offers free healthcare services. Appointments are available every Wednesday from 5-6:30pm. You must be 18 years or older and uninsured.
The clinic strongly suggests that you make an appointment. To make an appointment, call or request an appointment online by filling out a form on this website: http://www.brooklynfreeclinic.org/appointment/
If you do not have an appointment, the clinic takes some walk-ins (they will sometimes see patients without an appointment). If you cannot plan ahead, you must arrive by between 5pm and 6pm, the earlier the better. The clinic cannot guarantee that they will see all walk-in patients, so it is better to make an appointment.
Address: 470 Clarkson Avenue, Suite A, Brooklyn
Directions: Take the 2 train to Winthrop St station, then walk south on Nostrand Av, turn left on Clarkson Av, continue for two blocks until you reach the clinic. OR take the B44-SBS bus to Nostrand Av/Clarkson Av stop and walk east on Clarkson Av for two blocks.
You can also visit a Community Healthcare Network clinic for free services. You will not be asked about immigration status.
