Things have been financially very tough for us (as for many non-profits) and we really need and can use donations at this time. We are confident now that all will be well and SFMC will continue to offer the high level of quality medical, dental, and behavioral health services that we have been providing for over 31 years.

Thank you all very much for the outpouring of concern and the calls of support weve received. Thank you also to those of you who have already sent donations in response to our letter and we look forward to continued support and to being a healthcare provider of choice for our community for a long time to come.

N Drop Cap estled at the heart of the San Juan Ridge on Tyler Foote Road, the Sierra Family Medical Clinic has been providing full-service medical care to area residents for more than 31 years.

With our staff of nine medical professionals and Monday through Saturday operating hours, the Clinic is the primary health care provider for about 5,000 residents of Nevada and Yuba counties and areas beyond. Our patients come to us for routine physicals, healthcare monitoring, illnesses, accidents and minor emergencies, women's health exams, pediatric care, mental health counseling, dental services, and much more. Our model of "integrated healthcare" offering medical care, behavioral health and dental services all in one location, is becoming nationally known. We can refer patients between departments, and often, within the same day!

Whether you're considering becoming a new patient at the Clinic or you've been with us since 1982, if you have questions about who we are or what we offer, please take a moment to browse through this website. If you don't find answers to your questions here, please feel free to call us at 292-3478 or send us a non-secure, non-confidential email to info@sierraclinic.org.

"I have been going to the clinic since it first opened. This clinic and Dr. Peter Van Houten have saved my life many times. Hes also taken care of my children. Dr. Van Houten and the clinic are a blessing!"

"I feel treated with respect and dignity and seen as a whole person not as symptoms. Ive felt that practitioners listened and were knowledgeable about holistic approaches. They go the extra mile to serve. The staff seems cheerful and uplifting. Im very happy to contribute to such a worthy endeavor. Thank you."

"This is a perfect time to say thanks to all of you for your patience and kindness. You do a valuable service to those of us in need with compassion and dedication. You allow us to sustain dignity and put us at ease without judgment with lots of kindness."
