Lake County Free Clinic is the only free clinic serving Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula and eastern Cuyahoga counties, offering no-cost healthcare services to adults and children who are uninsured or unable to afford the costs associated with their health insurance.
LCFC has been a trusted provider in northeast Ohio since 1971, working diligently to ensure that all who need care find the support and help they need to not only improve their health and well-being but to also improve their quality of life.
Phillip came to LCFC in late 2020. He was uninsured and worried — he hadn’t had his blood pressure checked in more than a year.
At his first visit, an LCFC provider found edema and noted Phillip’s blood pressure was reaching levels that could possibly cause a stroke.
By his next visit, he had taken the doctor’s recommendations: he started on medication, cut back on junk food and began hiking.
He is excited for his next follow-up visit and new lifestyle.
“Everyone here is most helpful and friendly,” he said. “Thank you for helping me get care.”
