In July of 2008, Carol Daugherty and Greg Jahangiri opened the Nuestra Clinica (“Our Clinic”) in Boyle Heights. From its inception, the clinic has been built on the principal of providing patient oriented healthcare with a focus on bridging the gap left by many health plans that are often limited in coverage and scope of care. Those without coverage are not turned away even if they are unable to pay the low treatment fees.
