Dr. VanVeen & Amanda
Dr. Tom VanVeen started volunteering with Salem Free Clinics (SFC) in June 2008 when we were still at Walker Middle School seeing patients in cubicles made up of PVC pipe and sheets. He has faithfully served two Saturdays a month until his retirement from SFC and his practice in Mill City at the end of March 2017. Dr VanVeen provided compassionate and loving care.
Amanda Bortnem, RN, has been Dr. VanVeen’s valued clinic assistant for the past eight years. Amanda is retiring from volunteering at SFC to dedicate more time to her family. These two committed volunteers have truly exemplified our ethos of treating patients with dignity and respect.
