Old Patient With Doctor

Testimonial

A few months ago, a 72-year-old woman arrived in the USA from her home country in South America, where medical care was difficult to access. With numerous medical concerns, no insurance, and a lack of resources, she reached out to Waukesha Free Clinic and was evaluated by one of the volunteer physicians. Upon review of her symptoms and needs, it was determined that she had an extremely elevated blood sugar (Hemoglobin A1C + 17.6) and was risk of kidney failure and anemia, and was suffering from chronic urinary tract infections. After a few medical visits and regular continuity of care from our providers, proper laboratory testing was completed on a regular basis. With constant supervision on medical treatment plus adequate medication, her condition and her stamina improved dramatically. Soon all her lab values were stable. Even though she suffered internal organ damage from her prolonged lack of care and chronic disease condition, she is being proactive and taking full care of herself. At a recent appointment, her latest Hemoglobin A1C level was shown to have dropped to 9.7, showing a continued progress on her road to recovery!

Testimonials

  • Sarah is a 54 year old woman with multiple medical and mental health  issues.  She came to the attention of the medical outreach nurse at the clinic when she had an exacerbation of  her irritable bowel syndrome. At that point she was not stably housed and unsure of how to handle her multiple medical/ mental health needs. Working with the clinic and the PATH grant program through National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Sarah was able to obtain  the education, support and referrals needed. Sarah’s medical status is now stable. She has filled in her Advanced Directives and has obtained a medical alert bracelet and ID card offered by Waukesha Free Clinic.  She recently learned that she will be getting a place of her own. She has become active in the community again.

  • William came to clinic because he “could not hear hardly anything”. A longstanding problem - he did not seek help because he was uninsured. His hearing loss was interfering with his job and activities of daily living. A simple irrigaton procedure cleared his ear wax . William also reported that he had not taken his blood pressure medication for 5 months because his “samples from the hospital ran out.” He could not afford the medication. He was given medicaton from clinic supply and observed closely His medication was supported through the Waukesha County Community Development Block grant funds. He continues to come to the clinic and his blood pressure is well managed.
