It’s a New Day for Equity Health
Now with a new name, Equity Health is a group of private, non-profit community clinics that have been providing equal access to affordable, quality healthcare in our community for 50 years. We deliver care with sensitivity, respect, and compassion. Our main goal is to help our patients get healthy – and stay healthy.
“I have stayed clean for five months, not taking any more chances and dying of an overdose on the streets of San Francisco. I am alive thanks to the support of my doctor. Dr. Wilson is very nice and understanding and my dentist Dr. K who I love, he is really sweet and answers all of my questions”

Dr. Yogesh Jagirdar
Chief Medical Officer
Dr. Yogesh Jagirdar, affectionately known as Dr. J, is a seasoned board-certified Family Medicine physician dedicated to patient care spanning over a decade, catering to individuals from infants to seniors. Motivated by experiences during Medical School and Residency, he embarked on a mission to serve marginalized communities, a commitment evident during his tenure in Flint, Michigan, where he lived for nine years and actively contributed to addressing the healthcare impact of the city’s water crisis.
Relocating with his family to California in 2018, Dr. J was named Chief Medical Officer in 2021. “My decision to join Equity Health was driven by my desire to combat prevailing health disparities through proactive preventative care and chronic disease management initiatives. I believe we can make a difference.”
With a background in Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) leadership, Dr. J possesses extensive expertise in quality improvement and project and change management. He strongly advocates for the Institute of Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim program, which focuses on enhancing patient care experience, improving population health, and reducing healthcare costs.
Beyond medicine, Dr. J finds solace in the outdoors, hiking, biking, and spending quality time with his three children in the park. He nurtures a passion for woodworking and has crafted small furniture pieces for his home, a testament to his multifaceted pursuits and unwavering dedication to medicine and personal interests.
