Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured

Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured provides quality, ongoing, and free primary health care to the medically uninsured population in the city of Milwaukee. The Saturday Clinic is unique to other clinics because medical students are in charge of day-to-day operations in addition to patient care and education.

The clinic is located at 1121 E. North Ave., at the corner of North Ave. and Humboldt. There is street parking and a lot adjacent to the building. 

Patients at the Saturday Clinic are seen at 8:00 am or 10:00 am, depending on when they arrived. We encourage patients to arrive between 6:00-6:30 am in order to ensure that they are among the limited number of patients that can be seen on a given Saturday as per physician availability.

Services Provided & Patient Population

The clinic, which is open fifty weeks a year, regularly sees 15 to 25 patients per Saturday on a first come, first serve basis. It is not unusual for patients to wait outside the clinic starting earlier than 7:00 am to ensure that they are seen.

We see patients who attest to the fact that they have NO insurance coverage. Unfortunately, we cannot see patients who have partial coverage, including Medicare, Medicaid, BadgerCare, GAMP, or Title 19 insurance.

We do provide services for children by appointment on the second and fourth Saturday of every month. Please call the clinic phone at (414) 588-2865 to make a pediatric appointment.

We do not provide prenatal care.

We can provide interpreter services in some instance, so language barriers can be worked around in many circumstances. We use translator services from Columbia St. Mary's and it often take many hours for them to come in.

We provide basic primary care to many of our patients. We manage chronic conditions that would be managed in a general practitioner's office as well as acute illness. Examples of services we can provide include:

  • Routine health maintenance physicals including Pap Smears
  • Acute illness assessment/treatment
  • Follow-up care for injuries and accidents
  • Management of chronic health conditions
  • Routine laboratory work
  • Random glucose (immediate finger stick)
  • STD screening, including HIV testing
  • EKGs
  • Biopsies (on a limited basis, depending upon physician comfort)
  • limited referrals
  • prescription refills,
  • labs, x-rays and employment-requested physicals.
