The goal of Docere Clinics is to offer stem cell therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain that is affordable to most. The goal of the Docere Clinics Tithing Program is to offer stem cell therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain that is available to all.
Docere Clinics offers bone marrow stem cell therapy on a “tithing” model (stem cell therapy at no monetary charge for the medically underserved) approximately one day per month.
Services will be performed on patients who are able to demonstrate financial need. Although services are not “for sale”, neither are they “free”. There are two pathways for enrollment into the program. 1) Procedures are provided in exchange for documentation of approved community service, and 2) to combat service veterans of U.S. Military Forces. All community service must be completed after enrollment into the program but prior to the patient receiving the treatment.
