Mid Bronx Desperadoes Family Medicine Clinic

    Mid Bronx Desperadoes (MBD) Family Clinic is a cozy clinic that staffs between 2 and 4 providers on any given day. The providers administer care to anywhere between 150 to 200 patients a week. What allows for this success is MBD’s Patient Centered culture. From the moment a patient walks in they experience a sense of “Family.” The staff knows each patient by name just as the patients know each staff member by name. The MBD Clinic could function as an archetype of Family Medicine. MBD is attached to a residential building located across the street from the 174th Street Mall. Because of the convenient location of the clinic most patients simply walk downstairs or across the street to see their provider. Aligned with this sense of family, MBD providers do not just follow individual patients, but rather entire families from parents, to their children, to their grandchildren.

    MBD offers several specialties for the patients’ convenience and well-being. We offer Nutrition visits, Psychiatry visits, Social Work visits, and Prenatal visits. This allows the patients to consider MBD a “One Stop Shop” for their health care needs. Through its hardworking and amiable atmosphere MBD has earned the trust of its community and is able to provide quality healthcare to a diverse under-served community, consisting of 67% Hispanic and 27% African-American persons.
