ABSTRACT
The article features physician Lorna Stuart, founder of The Clinic: Medical Center for the Uninsured in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. According to Stuart, she saw the extent of the need on paper when she started working to open the clinic, but she did not really see it until they opened. Stuart said they have a lab on site and that they can get patients a good price on tests that require off-site lab work. She said that they are seeing people from at least 100 different countries because their only restriction is that they need to be uninsured.
