Dr. David TellezDr. David Tellez

Ten years ago, Dr. David Tellez was a man with a unique vision. A vision of a medical facility that not only treated people’s ailments, but was a place that would serve as a beacon for service and hope. Five years later, The Neighborhood Christian Clinic opened its doors.

In addition to competent medical care, Tellez wanted a place to provide genuine caring in an openly spiritual environment. He engaged the support of organizations such as Scottsdale Bible Church, Neighborhood Ministries, Open Door Fellowship and Saint Vincent de Paul. The original humble duplex has since been replaced by a 5,600 square foot state-of-the-art facility.

Tellez’ clinic has helped more than 10,000 people since its inception. The clinic enlists more than 170 volunteers, 60 physicians, and 1500 donors. Treating people with dignity is the core component of Dr. Tellez’s vision. Tellez’ medical facility is a place combining heart with medicine. And Tellez is the big driving heart behind it all.
