The Doctor Spot

Serving families in medically underserved areas of Dallas/Fort Worth.

When kids can’t go to the doctor, they can go to The Doctor Spot. That’s the idea behind The Doctor Spot, a mobile medical unit providing basic medical services for kids in some of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most medically underserved neighborhoods.

The mobile pediatric clinic travels around the Dallas/Fort Worth area to strategic sites such as elementary schools and apartment complexes. The goal is to provide care on a routine basis in order to keep our community in good health. The clinic is staffed with a Nurse Practitioner and a Medical Assistant. It offers sick checks and preventive care, including immunizations, athletic exams, and obesity screenings–the services that kids need to be healthy and thrive both at home and in the classroom. Mobile pediatric clinics are already proven to be successful in communities around the country, including Memphis, Miami, Houston and San Antonio.

The Doctor Spot will be closed on Thursday, 10/21/21. Normal hours – Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.Click here to download The Doctor Spot Temporary Location (updated schedule) (subject to change).
