About the Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic

Our Mission

The mission of the Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic is to provide free, high-quality medical, dental, and pharmaceutical care for low-income and uninsured patients.  In addition, our goal is to ensure that treatment is provided in a caring, compassionate and dignified atmosphere.


In 1997, after working 20 years as a cardiologist, Dr. Gary Burnstein began providing care for patients at a homeless shelter in Pontiac, Michigan. Dr. Burnstein passed away in 2003, but friends, family, and community members honored his dream of providing care to the uninsured by establishing the Dr. Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic (GBCHC). Dr. Burnstein’s dream of providing free medical care for those in need began in a closet at the shelter, and grew into a small rented facility in Pontiac.


The Clinic has since moved into a brand new, state-of-the-art facility that allows us to treat more patients, train more physicians and pharmacists, and to reach the broader community in ways never before possible. With expanded office hours, a new dental suite, and the capacity for sustained community education programs, the GBCHC is positioned to have a larger impact on a very deserving community.

The Burnstein Clinic is able to provide top quality care at no cost thanks to the medical and dental professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to caring for uninsured members of our community.


The remainder of our clinic is powered by an amazing corps of volunteer professionals.
