Patient FAQs

Will I be seen the same day that I come to register?


It is possible, but not guaranteed. Every patient must first register. Appointments will be scheduled based on the severity of your condition and our providers’ availability. You will be given the next available appointment.




How much does it cost?


Matthew 25 is a charitable health center. This means that all services and medications provided by Matthew 25 are at no cost to the patient. We do not submit insurance claims and we do not receive any government money to operate. To help cover some of the cost of care, we invite patients to donate $5.00 for each medical visit and $10.00 for each dental visit. However, this is a freewill offering only. No qualifying patient will be turned away for his or her inability to contribute.

Do you need a translator?


English is the common language spoken at Matthew 25 Health & Dental Clinic. Because medical/dental history is taken, prescribed medications carefully explained, and critical directions regarding healthcare given – all in English, the patient must be able to understand what doctors, nurses and assistants are saying. Depending on volunteer availability, Matthew 25 may have a translator avaiable, but it is recommended patients bring an adult that can translate for them if the patient cannot speak English.
