San Antonio doctor uses his love of art to help uninsured patients
SAN ANTONIO – A medical clinic on San Antonio’s South Side may look like an art gallery on the inside but the paintings serve a big purpose. Casa Salud Family Medicine Clinic is a clinic for those that are uninsured or undocumented, and the person behind it all is Dr. Ray Altamirano. One way the clinic can provide to those who are uninsured is by proceeds Altamirano gets from selling his paintings. Paintings can be seen throughout the clinic and are usually of pop culture icons and popular figures of San Antonio. Altamirano hopes his clinic can serve as a model for others and help more patients in need across the city.
