Free Clinic Turns Two

Knoxville (WVLT) -- A South Knoxville free clinic celebrated its second year in business this morning.

The celebration was held at the Free Medical Clinic of America on Chapman Highway and featured music, a cookout and speeches from members of the community.

"I would like to change the system for the American people," said Dr. Tom Kim, the clinic's founder. "Some people have to take care of that, it can be done. This is a good model for health care and it tells the government to do something."

The free clinic has served 6500 patients since its opening.

Patients are seen by appointment only and have to show proof of employment.
