Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the clinic located?

The Dr. Garabed A. Fattal Community Free Clinic operates in the Broome County Health Department Facility, just northwest of the intersection of Clinton and Front streets. Once the Health Dept. finishes its normal workday at 4:30 pm, our clinic staff take over and begin registering patients for the Community Free Clinic.

When is the clinic open?

Only Thursday evenings from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm, except for these scheduled holidays. Doors will lock at 7:30 pm, however, admitted patients will be seen until closing.

Who is eligible?

The Community Free Clinic provides services for uninsured adults (18 - 65 of age). People who have Medicare/Medicaid, VA health services or any other insurance are NOT eligible for Free Clinic services.  However, we do offer referrals to various health care organizations and services that may be able to help. Questions about eligibility can be discussed by leaving a message for the Free Clinic Voicemail at 607-772-3519.
