Free Fiction Monday: Clinic

The party on Haight-Ashbury Street in San Francisco ended two years before and now only a handful of people remain to clean up the mess. One of them, the receptionist at the Free Clinic, studies medicine with the hope of becoming a doctor, but everyone—from her professors to the staff at San Francisco General—tell her she can’t because of her gender. She’s not sure she can because of the choices a doctor must make on the front lines. Choices brought to the clinic that night in the form of a crazy, drug-addicted woman and a street kid named Klepto. Choices that mean the difference between life and death.

    It’s funny how things change and don’t — I’ve seen Big Brother and the Holding Company live a few years ago, and the Fillmore is still there, but the Haight is so gentrified and yuppified now. Still quirky, with a few of the old-timers hanging on, and an amazing store where you can still buy LPs (though I got CDs last time).

    Thankfully, the only time I’ve needed the Clinic’s services was at an all-day outdoor summer concert, where they gave me sunscreen and a bottle of cold water. I toss them a bit of cash wherever RockMed is set up, and buy earplugs if I forgot mine.

    And I have a KSAN bottle opener in the shape of an electric guitar stuck to the fridge…
