The clinics are offered year-round, rain or shine. In addition to the clinics in the park, small teams of medical volunteers walk the streets of Santa Barbara providing medical care directly to those in need. Volunteer medical teams provide hospitality items and medical care to homeless and individuals that have lost health care coverage.

Dr. Brayton Campbell received his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery. He then took his residency at Department of Veterans Affair’s Loma Linda Healthcare System in Ohio as part of three-year program designed to produce a podiatric surgical specialist who is an expert in the recognition and management of all foot and ankle conditions. Brayton continued his training by pursuing a fellowship at UFAI.

Dr. Campbell enjoys the outdoors and shortly after he moved to Southern California took up surfing. However, when the waves are flat you can find him on the golf course or riding his motorcycle.

Dr. Campbell is available for consultation at our Santa Barbara location.
