The Clinic… sometimes referred to as The Little Clinic that Could…. provides medical, dental and behavioral health services to patients from throughout Nevada County. Dr. Peter Van Houten decided to hang his shingle on a renovated storeage shed in hopes of helping those who could not nessarily afford health care services. Even he is surprised by the clinics success.
