    Wheels of Hope   

    Patients registered with our Wheels of Hope transportation service will be picked up and taken to their appointment by a volunteer driver. This is a shared-ride program that not only provides transportation but also offers a friendly, supportive environment along the way.

    New patients who register with Wheels of Hope will be required to pay a one-time $100 registration fee. Children 18 years old or under will not be charged. If you are unable to pay the full registration fee, you may be eligible for assistance through our compassionate program.
