The James A. Watson Wellness Center-5709 Market Street, Oakland, CA 94608
The James A. Watson Wellness Center is an African-American health care center focusing on disparities in disease within the African-American community. This 54-year old, 12,000 square foot facility houses a pharmacy, lab, and clinics for women, children, men, re-entry and seniors. The Center continues to focus on those who are professionals, working class, those with busy schedules, those who have low income, uninsured (Medi-Cal, indigent), seniors (Medicare population) and those with chronic disease (hypertension, diabetes, cancer, cardiac disease, HIV). Through its provider of medical services (PCN), 501 (c)3 (PCP), volunteerism, and limited grant funding, the facility maintains its commitment to those at greatest need. Four providers, Dr. Marcia Redwood, Dr. Tyrone Snipes, Omar Staples, P.A. and Dr. Geoffrey Watson, have made it possible to provide high quality care on same day/walk-in bases or scheduled appointments when convenient.
