What would you call a medical practice with a dozen area offices and scores of doctors – from general pracs to internists to allergists and endocrinologists – that accepts a wide range of health plans as well as discount cards for cash-paying patients? A dream? Well, wake up, because its real, and its called the Austin Regional Clinic. Started in 1980 by three local docs, the ARC has grown into a comprehensive medical practice that serves about 225,000 patients, with but one goal in mind: providing communitywide access to affordable health care. Our readers think that's a dream come true.
