“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to further serve our community with increased access to quality care through this new health center,” said San Diego Family Care CEO Roberta Feinberg.
“At San Diego Family Care, we take the time to listen, find answers and provide quality care,'' she said. “With our focus on expanding access to care, our goal is to be your primary care provider.”
The facility is equipped to provide adult medicine; pediatrics; mental health, including psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers; dentistry; optometry; podiatry; prenatal and reproductive care; a teen clinic; an on-site laboratory; and a pharmacy.
The new health center features 19 exam rooms for adults and children; six dental operatories; a private mental health pavilion; and five separate waiting rooms for each service offered.
