Notes:
Adult Primary Care (Services provided every Saturday morning):
At AFMC our dedicated team of physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses join together to provide primary medical care for adult patients on Saturday morning. Our focus is on disease recognition and prevention. We treat chronic medical problems to prevent further progression of the disease and long term complications that arise from the disease. We are not able to treat serious medical conditions at this time nor do we have specialists in areas other than Dermatology. If you need a specialist we can provide a referral for you to the appropriate specialist. We do not currently have the capacity to do x-rays, urgent labs or emergency procedures.

Dermatology Services (Services provided every Saturday morning when a dermatologist is available):
-Evaluation of lumps, bumps, or any spot on skin that is causing discomfort, itching, or general concern.
-Evaluation and treatment of common skin conditions such as acne, warts, hives, acute and chronic skin rashes and any skin condition that itches.

Pediatric Services: (Services provided every Wednesday evening):
Community pediatricians, nurses and volunteers operate this clinic for children between birth and 12 years of age. (Children older than this are served by the San Lorenzo High School Clinic in the same building during the day Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.) We see children who are ill or who have ongoing medical problems. Please note that a child who has an illness felt to be life-threatening should be taken to an Emergency Room. We are able to provide some lab services and immunizations for children.
