COVID-19

The health and well-being of our patients is our most important concern and will continue to be our priority through these difficult times.

The Madison Free Clinic is not a walk-in clinic – please call for appointments or for clinical questions. Visits that can be delayed safely will be rescheduled to reduce the number of patients moving through the clinic. Dental referrals will be for emergencies only at this time. We are not closing, but we are prioritizing cases that cannot wait.

We will continue to provide prescription coverage.

We ask that patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, or respiratory symptoms call the clinic so that appropriate steps can be determined. If you need medication or have a follow-up appointment, please call first for phone screening. If your doctor orders it, you can be tested for COVID-19 at the Madison Free Clinic.
