Health Care - Bread for the City

Just Logo Health Care Patient Portal

Since 1974, Bread for the City’s medical clinic has helped to bridge the health care gap for uninsured and low-income adults and children in Washington, DC.

Today, over 3,000 patients call Bread for the City their medical home. We provide primary care for all ages, including examinations, medications, lab tests, and referrals. Our dental, vision, behavioral health, and acupuncture services only see patients who come to Bread for the City for their primary health care. This allows our doctors to offer high-quality, coordinated, comprehensive services to every patient.

Also, as a Title X sub-recipient, we offer patients options for family planning, pregnancy testing, sexually transmitted disease testing, and counseling and treatment.

All of our services are offered regardless of ability to pay.

Dr. Jessica currently runs Bread for the City’s eye clinic at our Northwest Center, where she administers comprehensive eye exams to DC residents regardless of their ability to pay for services.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jessica, you must first be an established primary care patient at Bread. We do not perform contact lens exams. We also do not have an optical shop on site, and as such, we do not make glasses. Please call the medical front desk for further assistance.
