Good Sam Cobb is committed to its founding purpose, to spread the love of Christ and provide a primary medical and dental healthcare home to the uninsured and underinsured, working poor and indigent in our community. Patients pay on a sliding fee scale based on income and household size with the remaining costs being provided by donations. Good Sam's family centered approach ensures that we deliver high quality primary and preventative medical and dental services in addition to counseling, pharmaceutical, referral, and health education programs in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or ability to pay.

Once patients receive routine care, linguistically and culturally appropriate health education, and appropriate medication counseling they experience improved health and success in school, at work, and in other settings that help them move from perpetual self-need to self-sustaining independence.

Vision: Christ commands us in Luke 10:27 to " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' " Good Sam will be obedient to this command and operate as a Christian ministry that serves the working poor of our community by providing quality primary and preventative medical and dental services to those who might otherwise go without the care they need. This will be done at an affordable cost, providing families with a medical home upon which they can depend. As Jesus did in His ministry, we will address our patient's spiritual needs as well as their basic human needs.
