We help people get well and stay well by offering a wide range of services, which integrate patients’ primary medical, dental, vision, and behavioral health care. We also offer services for substance use treatment, child development, and health education.
Our professional care teams provide primary medical care, dental care and behavioral health services for a large and diverse population. As part of our personalized approach, we offer many specialized services that address the unique needs of our patients, including:
We support expectant families through their entire pregnancy. Mothers get focused attention from our care team and referrals for related services, from prenatal vitamins and ultrasounds, to blood testing and amniocentesis, through labor, delivery, and postpartum checks. We even offer baby showers to help mothers-to-be meet each other.
Venice Family Clinic’s Fineshriber Pediatrics Program ensures that our youngest patients get the care they need to stay healthy. In addition to state-of-the-art medical care, children benefit from a range of services to promote their health and well-being, including dental and vision care, free books to promote reading, and nutrition classes at our teaching kitchen. Families participating in our Children First Early Head Start program get personalized attention and participate in group sessions, all of which helps them access our full comprehensive health and social services offerings.
Venice Family Clinic provides teens with not only primary medical care, but also mental health services, domestic violence screening and support, and referrals to a wide variety of specialty care as needed. We also offer confidential contraceptive counseling, pregnancy and sexual health tests, and counseling related to common issues such as sexuality and substance use. We provide this care through our Teen Clinic and also through our clinics at Santa Monica High School and Culver City High School.
Women have unique social pressures and medical needs. Venice Family Clinic’s Judy and Bernard Briskin Women’s Health Program provides integrated and comprehensive care that addresses the broad spectrum of women’s health and well-being. We provide reproductive health services, mammograms, pap smears, HPV vaccinations and other vital medical services. We also have programs to address mental and behavioral health needs, as well as help women impacted by domestic violence.
We treat people experiencing homelessness in-clinic or through our groundbreaking street medicine program. Our locations are friendly and welcoming, and we offer access to care for both acute and chronic conditions, as well as support for mental health issues, addictions, and emotional trauma. We work with community partners to provide medical support as part of ten street outreach teams that span Los Angeles from the Westside to mid-city. These teams, comprised of medical providers, case managers, social workers and psychiatrists, integrate our patient’s health care with programs to get them housed and off the streets.
We offer gender-affirming services for our patients who identify with a different gender than what they were assigned at birth. These include hormone therapy and surgical referral, behavioral health consultations to manage the emotional aspects of transitioning, and case management.
